Description sdc.blanco 2018-11-17 14:35:08 UTC

1.  Use Text Document, with a comment, and cursor in comment box.
2.  Search on a word that is in the Text body.
3.  Hit ESC (to remove search Dialog Box.

Observed behavior:

Cursor returns to comment box.

Expected behavior:

Cursor remains at the "found word" 
(which is also what normally happens when searching in the text body).

Thank you for reporting the bug.
it seems you're using an old version of LibreOffice.
Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice
from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.

I don't reproduce with Edit-Find but I do with Edit-Find&Replace in step 2. 
Please confirm.
Comment 3 sdc.blanco 2018-12-23 16:24:45 UTC
Clarification/Correction:  As noted in #2, the problem appears with Edit/Find&Replace, not with Edit/Find.
