Description jacques.trincavelli@club-internet.fr 2018-05-18 22:05:29 UTC
I want to define the replace (or find) field of the Find & Replace window using the paste option OF THE EDIT MENU. But the clipboard contenu goes on to the text

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a new document writer file
2. Fill the clipboard whith some string 
3. Select Find & Replace
4. Try to paste on the "replace field" using paste command of the edit menu
5. The string is not in de replace field but in the text

Actual Results:  
The clipboard contenu goes on the text

Expected Results:
The clipboard contenu goes on the selected find & replace field

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Same with find-toolbar. Since it works with Strg+V, I would expect, that it also works via Edit => Paste.

This is the expected behaviour!
The find&replace is a modal dialog that allows the user to continue interacting with the document, thus, it's expected the content is paste in the document when using the menu.
