It is not possible to jump directly from the search field to the search&replace dialog.
- Open a text document
- Type ctrl+F to enter the search field
- Optionally search for some string (e.g. double space ' ')
- Type ctrl+alt+F to go to the search&replace dialog (supposing for example that I found something I want to replace)
What happens: the File menu is opened, probably interpreted as alt + F.
Workaround: type Escape to get out of the search field before typing ctrl+alt+F
I would except to have the search&replace dialog directly when typing ctrl+alt+F from the search field.
NB : all that without using the mouse obviously.
Thanks for bugreport
reproduced in 3.5.3 on Fedora 64 bit and Windows 7 32 bit
This bug is part of another: When text cursor is in any tool, keyboard shortcuts are not working. This bug exist for long time.

Likewise after performing a Find, the Repeat Search (default Ctrl+Shift+F) shortcut doesn't work until the focus leaves the Find toolbar.
