This document illustrates the problem
I have been waiting forever for OOo to implement a "Find all" feature that
searches all pages by default and gives a list of clickable results. I am now hoping that LibreOffice calc will implement this soon.
I have 3 files that I open at work daily using another application because Calc
lacks this feature.

The attached document illustrates why this solution is only a partial one.
It can only search one sheet at a time.
It has no options
It must be relaunched for each new search
The attached document also illustrates how a perfect solution might work (Gnumeric) and how an adequate solution might work.(MS Excel)
Version 3.5 is out and this issue has not been addressed. Sadly, I didn't miss
any of the improvements that we made. I am confident that if the developers
wanted to, they could fix this problem. I just can not understand why they
don't want to.
Please can you explain why an improvement must be highest an critical?
I can't see it. IMHO only regression or crashing bugs can have this status.

If that is the case, I can't. Can you tell me how I can get the developers to give some attention to this bug for which finding a fix is of the highest importance and which needs the most urgent attention? I have been trying for years.
It is the only feature of any importance where both OOo and LibreOffice lag behind both MS Excel and Gnumeric.
I am agree with you, it is an interesting feature.
But I think shout it is not the best to get right attention.
Get support from other user, would be good.
I don't see this improvement in the list of new features in 3.6:
May be is easy to get the attention from developer of the extension.

Guess what, of the features listed in the link, I already fixed what I needed by customising menus and using macros. I was not aware of a problem with the others.
Ctrl-D - Fixed by customizing menu
New option to specify a custom sheet - Unaware of any issues
Improved performance of pivot table. - Unaware of any issues
Marked cells in Calc can now be merged via the right mouse click - Unaware of any issues
Improved error message for invalid sheet name. - Unaware of any issues
Export conditional formatting to xlsx (Markus Mohrhard) - Unaware of any issues
Improved CSV file import. - Unaware of any issues
Added a "Save cell formulas instead of calculated values" - Unaware of any issues
Cut and Insert (another request of mine which was ignored) Fixed with macro and menu costomising
Do I really need to wait until I retire in another 15 years or so, plus another
2 or so years that it may take me to learn programming (If I live that long)
for this to be fixed?
Filling several identical bug reports, will not boost your request for enhancement.

Lots of advice about what won't work. Thanks for that. Any advice about what will?
