Description Adalbert Hanßen 2022-04-05 10:44:06 UTC
We need search capability restricted to the Navigator and in Navigator at least restricted to Headlines, but possibly also to other Navigator main categories.

For the search, Search in Navigator should open all unopened lower level elements. After it has found a match, it should open all collapsed lower level elements surrounding and including the match. If the user decides to proceed to the next match, the open/collapsed structure in Navigator's display should be re-established as it was before, but the actual search should continue as if all lower level elements in Navigator would be not collapsed (as mentioned before).

Reason: Navigator's display shows only the beginning of the headlines. Finding something on a headline (which is very much to the right) is very tedious.

Suggested User Interface: Add a drop down thing to the search bar letting me select between "Search in document" "Search in Headlines", Search in "....".

The same search capabilities should also be possible when searching the right landing place of a hyperlink in a document.
