By default, Libreoffice Writer saves the 10 previous searched words: That's it, if you search for words after words in a document using Ctrl+F, you can see by clicking on the arrow next to the search input the 10 last searched words.
Sometimes, I'd need to look which words have been searched ealier than the 10 last searches.
The max number of saved word searches, i.e 10, is embedded in the source code. I propose that it's modifiable in the preferences.
it make sense
Default dropdown count on most if not all desktop environments is 8. And since we aim to be as close as possible to the OS/DE I'm against a higher value. However the request is clear and a simple expert configuration might solve the problem for those who need more items in the list.
The patch is here https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/67614/ introducing the new expert configuration switch (Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Advanced) "FindReplaceRememberedSearches" placed under org::openoffice::Office::Common::Misc with a default of 10.

I modified in Tools - Option - Advanced - Expert - FindReplaceRemembered from 10 to 30 but when searching is remembering only the last 10 resulta... Is another string that need to be changed, not the FindReplaceRemembered???

Try with "FindReplaceRememberedSearches". It should work with any value (if <1 the value is set to 1 since yesterday).
