Hi, :-)

I'd love to be able to find/replace within multiple open documents and within all open LibO apps.

Ideally, in the find/replace dialog box, in the "More options" sub-pane, I'd like a dropdown list in which I can checkmark all the open files within all the open LibO apps to be included in the scope of the search.

Any chance you could add this functionality? A big thanks if so, and more power to you, guys. :-)

@ David Nelson
My be exists extensions for OpenOffice.org with this functionality. Please, verify.

Dear bug submitter!

Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.

To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement

Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.

Reopening because it is RFE.
IMHO search among multiple documents is very useful functionality.
