Convert find & replace dialog to .ui
Confirmed by me in 2015 https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37494#c7
In that old version where the regexp initially appears it will then eventually disappear if you click in and out of textboxes and/or switch windows a few times/use replace all. Help is also set up to hide the help for regexp if help is called for this page in impress (or draw).
So it seems the strong intent in the code was to hide the option in impress and its initial visibility seems to be a bug in that old version. I've no problem if someone wants to log a bug to show/enable the feature in impress (or draw then also) but then the someone attempting that will have to handle the inevitable follow up bugs arising from that.
So from the perspective of a regression that its not always hidden as opposed to initially shown in impress before becoming hidden I'm calling this NOTABUG
