Description guser 2020-03-16 06:06:42 UTC
Writer/Calc/Impress/Draw use in Find dialog to case sensitive search "Match case" checkbox. Automatic Redaction use "Case Sensitive" checkbox.
To whole words search use Find dialog "Whole words only" and Automatic Redaction use "Whole Words Only"
In Find dialog is checkbox Regular expressions, but when use regexp, I use only one pattern, not many. Change this term to "Regular expression", like as in Automatic Redaction dialog.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. to open Find dialog:
2. run Writer and go to Edit > Find & Replace

1. to open Auto-Redaction
2. run Writer and go to Tools > Auto-Redact

Actual Results:
Terms are differents.

Expected Results:
Unify these terms to single term and character case.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

So many suggestions in one reprort, please in future file one report for one suggestion. But thank you anyway

I agree with suggestion about AutoRedaction dialog, but disagree with suggestion about Find&Replace dialog

UX-team, opinions?

I’m inclined to use “Match case” throughout because that’s the older term, but either is fine to me
Comment 3 Heiko Tietze 2020-03-27 10:36:34 UTC
We discussed the topic in the design meeting.

a) Use "Match case" instead of "Case Sensitive"
b) Use title style capitalization in AutoRedaction dialog
c) Use "Regular expression" in singular

Terminology is easyhacking, happy to supply code pointers.
