Description Jim Raykowski 2017-09-03 19:54:34 UTC
There is a bug in the way enabled states are handled for 'Find Next' and 'Find Previous' in the Find toolbar.

I have committed a patch that corrects this and adds the same enabled state dependency to 'Find All'.

It can be found at https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/41264/

Not sure I see this bug - can you expand what's wrong with current behaviour?

Comment 3 Jim Raykowski 2017-09-04 02:34:05 UTC
The intent of the code is to enable/disable the Previous and Next command items but the Next and Find all command items are being enabled/disabled.  
Screenshot1.png shows only the placeholder text entered in the Find box. The Previous item is enabled. The Next and Find all command items are disabled.
