Pasting while the search box at the foot of the document is selected results in text incorrectly being pasted into the spreadsheet instead.
Steps to reproduce:
Select the search box at the foot of the document
Paste (using the menu OR command-V)
Text incorrectly gets pasted into the spreadsheet itself in the last used cell
Text should get pasted into the search box, if the search box has been selected
It is clear that the target of typing, and the target of pasting should ALWAYS be the same.
This bug may have been present in earlier versions too.
Operating System: Mac OS X
Version: 188.8.131.52 release
which search box at the foot of document are you talking about?
could you please provide a screenshot?

Screen shot as per request
See the bottom of the screen shot. I mean the place where you type the text to be found when doing a search.
To be perfectly clear - if you click inside that box, and type, text appears in the box as expected.
If you click in that box and do paste (via menu or command V), the text does not go in that box as expected, but in whichever spreadsheet cell was last used.
Clicking in the box should move the focus from the cell to the search box, but while it seems to do so for typing, it does not do so for pasting.
(It seems bizarre to me that the design could let these depend on two different notions of focus - but there you go).
Ok, You mean the Findbar (which is toggled by Ctrl+F)
I tested 184.108.40.206 under Win7 64bit and I can paste any text string inside the Findbar textbox without reproducing your bug.
1- open new Calc file
2- digit "test" in A1 cell
3- copy text string
4- paste it into Findbar textbox
5- text correctly pasted in proper location
is that a MacOS specific bug?
moreover when you say "This bug may have been present in earlier versions too" have you ever effectively saw that bug before?
It may well be a Mac specific bug. I don't have a Windows box or Linux box to test it on. I have noticed it on more than one Mac.
I am pretty sure the bug has been there a while. I think I have encountered it at odd times in the past, but have been too busy at the time to report it.
So, I believe it to be longstanding and not recently introduced.
Hi Ralph, it's an already known old bug in Mac. Please comment in the previously reported bug instead.
