Description Böröczky Csaba 2012-05-10 12:11:22 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Type words example "Ctrl + f keresés nem működik"
2. You should explicitly select any of the words, example "nem"
3. The search box appears in the lower left corner and the selected text is not included. 
First problem: I searched in the search window for several minutes while the left-hand corner has been found.
Second: Selected text no in search box
Thrid: The list is empty after repeated search

Confirmed, I think the second problem is indeed annoying, will fix in a bit.

fdo#49750 findbar: try to fill empty textfield with selected text
Comment 3 Andras Timar 2012-08-07 08:24:53 UTC
1st problem (it is hard to find the Search bar) is invalid. Search bars are getting popular in other applications, too. For example in Firefox.

2nd problem (selected text in Search box) has been partially resolved by Miklos. In fact it is a duplicate of bug 37791, I'll comment it there. 

3rd problem (history is empty) - well, I'm afraid that it is not implemented. Let's convert this bug to deal with this problem only.

History doesn't vanish by closing

Until now, only the ToolBar's TextField stored the history, but
this is destructed when ToolBar is closed. The "Manager" class is alive
in case of Toolbar's invisibility, so I made this class to store history
