Description B.J. Herbison 2019-11-08 00:25:43 UTC
When the search bar is narrowed until the >> symbol first appears, clicking >> shows an empty pop-up.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a wide LibreOffice Calc window.
2. Ensure the find bar is displayed.
3. Narrow the window slowly until ">>" appears at the end of the find bar,
4. Click the ">>".

Actual Results:
When the >> first appears the pop-up is empty. In other words, there is no information to show but Calc wants you to check and see if there is information.

See the attached image.

Expected Results:
The >> shouldn't appear until something visible is added to the overflow menu.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Additional Info:
This is a remaining issue after bug 101129 was addressed.

This occurs on through (and possibly earlier versions).

This arrows should apear only when the last element is gone from the find bar.
Comment 4 B.J. Herbison 2020-09-21 08:51:12 UTC
When this condition arises try searching for text that doesn't appear in the sheet  and then press the >> again and you will see "Search key not found". The blank object is the placeholder for a search message.
