Description Eltomito 2018-02-12 22:10:27 UTC
Setting Format in the CTRL+H search dialog affects the search performed by the CTRL+F dialog.

This is similar to this former bug https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62601 but it isn't the same and it isn't fixed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write "This is happiness." in a document (and don't put any font effects on it).
2. Open the CTRL+H search dialog
     and in Other options -> Format -> Font Effects,
     set "Effects:" to "Capitals"
3. Close the search dialog and try to do a CTRL+F search for the string "happiness".

Actual Results:  
"happiness" isn't found.

Expected Results:
"happiness" should be found.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

where are the duplicates of this issue?

Take a look at "See also: 62601 (https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62601)"
There's a bunch of them there.
Comment 7 Timur 2020-10-22 11:36:25 UTC
We may discuss if this is the bug at all. Also makes sense to keep setting from CTRL+H in CTRL+F.
For me, bug is that after setting from CTRL+H is cleared, search still doesn't work.

STR of comment 0 and result remain valid, settings made in the Find and Replace dialog are bleeding into the Find Bar search.  

Here it is a setting made to the Format -> Font Effects 'Case' values, when set they affect searches from the Find Bar.

@Jim and thoughts on connectivity between the Find Bar and settings of the Find & Replace dialog? And which, if any, should affect the Find Bar & Sidebar Navigator 'Repeat search' actions...
Comment 10 V Stuart Foote 2022-10-23 04:39:14 UTC
UX gave direction in see also bug 72080 -- the Find Bar query should be as simple (basic) as possible with no bleed over from the Find & Replace dialog--the dialog being used for any more demanding searches across the modules.
Comment 11 V Stuart Foote 2022-10-23 05:28:28 UTC
A bit off topic, but in context of doing something with Search support.

It would be nice to have ICU lib RegEx available to use from Find Bar ( bug 119200 ) but the consistency of no bleed over from the F&R dialog is better--as stated elsewhere no configuration of the Find Bar search that doesn't include visible control in the UI for it.

So, can make a case that establishing a consolidated search deck for the Sidebar ( bug 95405 ) would be a good way to move forward.  To expose the UI controls of the F&R dialog as content panels to fully configure the search. With a content panel to input the search strings. And content panels to hold results and reposition the canvas to focus at the results. Reuse the good stuff that Jim R. has been adding to SB Navigator deck.

Would add that for a SB based Search it would be better UX to have ability to detach the deck from the SB, like current secondary <F5> Navigator.

Or possibly to finally implement the SB framework needed ( bug 85905 ) to support detachable "tear away" SB decks. And eliminate the need for the <F5> Navigator duplicate, or any need to duplicate a new "Search" deck as for here. Instead just one of each but they could be torn away to float or to dock as user prefered.
