Description fenglich 2012-09-06 15:20:11 UTC
Problem description: 

When the search phrase doesn't match the document, LibreOffice will pop up two dialogs:
1. "Search from the beginning of the document? Yes/no?"
2. "Search key not found."

This is rather unnecessary. "Search key not found." is sufficient. It could be worth looking at how browsers and OS X's application Preview implement it -- they do it without dialogs.

Platform (if different from the browser): 
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_8_1) AppleWebKit/537.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/21.0.1180.89 Safari/537.1

Thanks for reporting!

I can't find any related duplicates for this one, so I mark it as NEW. Also I attached a related enhancement in the 'See Also' field.

Kind regards,

Fixed in 4.4 and probably in 4.3 too. Now a string is shown in the toolbar or dialog: Search key not found

Kind regards,
