Description David F Smith 2019-02-23 19:07:18 UTC
When a find operation switches from slides to notes, or vice versa, the found text is selected for deletion or replacement.  This is probably related to bug 123665.

Steps to Reproduce:
I first created a test presentation (attached) with the following three slides:
Slide Title   Slide Notes
  Slide 1     First page of notes
              This is the first slide of three
  Slide 2     Second page of notes
              This is the second slide of three
  Slide 3     Third page of notes
              This is the third slide of three

1. In the slide pane, click on the first slide.  Click on the Normal tab to display the slide.

2. Choose Edit / Find, or press Ctrl-F.  In the search box, type "slide" (without the quotes) and click the "find next" button (the large down-arrow in the Find toolbar at the bottom of the screen).  The word "Slide" is highlighted.
This is correct.

3. Continue clicking the "find next" button until the notes view of slide 1 is displayed.  (Nothing is highlighted -- see 123665.)

4. Click the "find next" button again.  "Slide" is highlighted, and there is a blinking vertical-bar cursor after the word.  Pressing Enter or any other key at this point causes the word "slide" to be replaced by whatever is typed.

Actual Results:
See above.  Behavior is inconsistent: on the slides, the highlighted text will not be deleted on pressing Enter.  (In fact, Enter acts the same as "find next.")  On the notes, the highlighted text, with the blinking cursor, will be deleted by Enter.  This is different from text searches in Writer, in which Enter and "find next" work identically and the found text never shows a cursor.

Note that a similar thing happens if the search is started when Notes is displayed: when the search switches to Normal slides, the next highlighted result includes a cursor.

Expected Results:
I expected the text found by the search to be selected, but not to be deleted if I press Enter.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

It used to be worse: in 4.3.0 and older Enter replaces the text even in Slide view.

Also repro on Linux.

Potentially an accessibility issue, so keeping severity as normal.

Retested this bug, which is probably related to bug 123665.  The behavior is exactly the same as in my original report.

I have retested under, and now the results are exactly what I expect.  I have changed the status to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME.

Thank you.
