Description Hyogapag 2013-05-11 03:38:13 UTC
The 'find all' function is sometimes very convenient, but is quite difficult to… find. The fact a 'find' feature doesn't appear in the 'find bar' but only in the 'find and replace' window doesn't seem logical to me.

How about placing a 'find all' check box in the find bar?

Thanks for reporting!

Looks a valid enhancement request, therefore marking it as such.
Looks also very related to Bug 63035, so I place it in the 'See also' field. Michael M also specify some code pointers over there. So anyone who is interested in fixing this -> take a look at bug 63035 for code pointers.

Working on this! (Is very similar to https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=63035 as mentioned.)
