Description clemty 2013-01-25 21:20:24 UTC
Created attachment 73661 [details]
"Search key not found" dialog with overly verbose title

Problem description: 

Find & Replace errormessage has version number in title.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Ctrl-F
2. click on Magnifier
3. search for nonexistent string

Current behavior:
Trying to find nonexistent word results in a "Search key not found" messagebox - the title of this messagebox is "Libreoffice". This is inconsistent with other areas in LibreOffice (e.g. the "LibreOffice crashed" dialog only has "LibreOffice" in the window title)

Expected behavior:
In my opinion the most logical window title would be to repeat the "Find & Replace" string from the parent dialog.
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: rc

Thanks for reporting!

I can reproduce this 'problem' with the latest bibisectable 'bibisect40' version of LibreOffice: LibreOffice 3.5.0 Build ID: d6cde02

So this is not a 4.0 problem but this is older (maybe inherit from AOo).

* I set LO version of this bug to 3.5.0 (oldest version we can reproduce so far)
* Set bug priority following [1] as 'trivial'  'low'

As this bug also affects Linux, I am setting the affected OS to All.
Comment 3 Robert Roth 2013-01-28 01:35:14 UTC
You suggested that the title of the infobox should be the same as the title of the Find & Replace dialog, however you can also search from the search bar, when you have not started the search from the dialog. What should be the title in this case? As "Find & Replace" is not really fit, as the find bar does not have an option to replace.
