Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-10-03 09:34:41 UTC
Steps how to reproduce with parallel installation of Master "LOdev   -  ENGLISH UI / German Locale  [Build ID: c7e559]"  {tinderbox: @16, pull time 2012-10-03 05:46:26} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit):

1. Open blank new WRITER document from LibO Start Center
2. Menu 'View -> Toolbars', uncheck "Find" if necessary
3. Menu 'Edit -> Find'
   You should see something like a toolbar appear, but 
   only a handle appears, toolbar is without input pane and
4. If Find Bar is docked, Undock (Drag and drop to somewhere
   in the document area)
   You still see the empty bar
5. Redo from Step 2
   In step 3 you again only will see the empty bar without 
   input pane.

Find and replace dialog appears as expected.

[Reproducible] with Server-installation of Master "3.7.0.alpha0+  – ENGLISH UI [Build ID: b255de8]" {tinderbox: Win-x86@16, pull time 2012-10-06 09:31:39} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) UserInstallation=$SYSUSERCONFIG/LOdev/3

May be we can also check other OS?

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today (d1439...), I reproduced the problem.
I must add that when I select "find", I've got "Find" toolbar checked and can uncheck it but when find isn't checked, I can't see it in Views Toolbar.

I don't know if it's linked but when I click on "Edit", I've got this on console:
(soffice:21815): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
(soffice:21815): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
several times

When I click on "Insert" menu, I've got this additionnal trace:
warn:legacy.osl:21853:1:/home/julien/compile-libreoffice/libo/comphelper/source/misc/namedvaluecollection.cxx:225: NamedValueCollection::impl_assign: encountered a value type which I cannot handle:

(put all since it's reproduced with Linux too)
Comment 3 Roman Eisele 2012-10-06 17:06:00 UTC
REPRODUCIBLE also on Mac OS X 10.6.8 (Intel) with LOdev (Build ID: dd11a1e; pull time: 2012-10-04 12:52:50). If I try to show the “Find” palette window/toolbar widged, only “something like a toolbar” (as Rainer put it nicely) appears: A completely empty, white nothing with a frame and a closebox, but no controls in it.
