Description David Lynch 2021-10-24 09:46:56 UTC
>>> The defaults in the Find toolbar and the Find dialog are:
>>> Direction: Rows Search in: Formulae
>>> I normally want the opposite: Search in columns (because columns usually
>>> consist of more homogeneous data than columns) and search in Data
>>> (because usually I'm usually looking at the finished spreadsheet rather
>>> than constructing it, and even when constructing a spreadsheet, search
>>> for a formula is infrequent).
>>> You cannot change the default from the toolbar and, if you change the
>>> default from the dialog then move to another sheet, it changes back to
>>> the unwelcome default.
>>> Is there a way to change the default permanently?
>> Not that I've been able to find. I also prefer to search columns
>> before rows and wish there were a way to make that the default.


> I think it would be even nicer if it remembered the settings from last time.
