Description Harald Koester 2018-11-02 21:56:20 UTC
In order to reproduce the bug follow these instructions:
[1] Create new text document.
[2] Display toolbar Find: View > Toolbars > Find
[3] In this toolbar in the drop-down menu “Navigate By” select „Control“.
[4] Display toolbar Form Controls. The Design Mode should be enabled.
[5] Insert 3 simple form controls, e.g. text boxes.
[6] Click the up and down arrow of the function “Navigate By” some times. The selection correctly jumps to the next or previous form control.
[7] Disable Design mode in toolbar Form Control.
[8] Click the up and down arrow of the function “Navigate By” some times. A search to the next/previous form control is not performed. Expected: Jump to next/previous form control.

This bug exists already in version 3.3.0. Thus inherited from OOo.

Comment 3 Harald Koester 2019-11-24 19:15:00 UTC
The behaviour has changed since version 6.3.0: Now at step 8 the search is performed but with the search the Design mode is enabled again. I would expect that the Design mode is still disabled.
