In order to reproduce:
 Create a new text document and insert 3 simple tables with some empty lines between them..
 Insert a comment after first table.
 Position the cursor inside the comment.
 Display Find toolbar and select Table in “Navigate By” drop-down menu.
 Click arrow keys in order to find the previous or next table. Nothing happens. The cursor is still in the comment. Expected: Cursor in tables.
This bug also occurs if you use bookmarks instead of tables. I did not check the other object types.
Reproduced, but I do not think this is a bug.
When cursor is in the comment, the comment area is active. Since there is no table inside the comment, noting is found, that is why there is no reaction when you click the up and down arrow button.
If you put the cursor back to the text area, then find the tables with up and down arrow buttons work perfect.

I mark it as NEW, and added keyword needsUXEval.
Note that this happens not only for tables, but also for any other objects such as shapes, images etc.
The table is not selected therefore noting is assigned
Nothing to add. Same happens when you enter an object such as text in a shape.
That you expect the behavior from the F&R toolbar is another question and results from the mix-up of functions around find with navigational operations.
Sorry I don't agree. I checked the Navigate By function for some other object types while the cursor is positioned in the comment. For some object types (Graphics, Drawing) the Navigate By function still works and for other types (Table, Bookmark) it does not work. For me this is not consistent, either it should work for all object types or for no types. And from a users view I would expect, that the Navigate By function also and always works if the cursor is positioned in a comment.

It will not work after you "enter" the object, i.e. switch to the edit mode.

I do not really understand what you mean with entering an object. E.g. is this the case if the cursor is inside a comment? In this case as I said, the Navigate By function *works* with some object types (Graphics, Drawing) and does not work with other object types (Table, Bookmark).
In this case the Navigate By function works as expected.
 Create a new text document and insert 2 images.
 Insert a comment between the 2 images. The cursor is inside the comment.
 Display Find toolbar and select Graphics in the Navigate By drop-down menu.
 Click "Next graphic" (down arrow). The second image is selected as expected. The cursor is still in the comment.
 Click "Previous graphic" (up arrow). The first image is selected as expected.
This behavior can be changed in the move navigation code by performing the same function as a keyboard Escape does while in a Comment and then doing the Navigate By.
I'm with Harald in comment 5 that it should work for all object types or for nothing when the cursor is in a comment or in 'normal edit mode' (not during editing a shape, chart, etc.).

Guess you closed the ticket unintentionally.
After discussing the topic in the design meeting the recommendation is to implement the feature with low priority (ie. if effort is limited). Users should be aware that a search is context dependent. But OTOH it works on most places and wont hurt to include the document text when searching in comments.
Objects in edit mode are out-of-scope, so the change affects only comments.
I can't believe I just committed a patch again without
1. asking if anyone is working on this patch
2. take (assign) patch to self
I'm going to get the next one right.
Here is a link to a patch for review
Much respect and thanks to all who make this project great and fun!
Jim Raykowski committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#115666 Behavior change of Navigate By when in Comment
It will be available in 6.1.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
Works well, thanks for the patch.
And I was totally wrong with the scope; the issue is only about right-most up/down buttons that jump from table to table but didn't when in a comment. The request was not to in- or exclude comments or other areas from the search.
*** Bug 115681 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Verified with 6.1.2. Thus bug closed.
