Create any document with automated (!) paragraph numbering such as
and search for a numbering you see on the screen - Writer doesn't find it.
You could maybe use the Navigator (F5) ?
Created attachment 87173 [details]
In the attached document, there is a numbered list, a field and a table with a formula. Trying to search for numbers 1-6 (numbering and field) gives no matches, while 7 is found in table.
This is a valid enhancement request.
While it's possible to use Navigator to handle numbered lists, it's impossible to do with fields. And it's not intuitive to get no results searching for a text visible on screen.
While the searched text can be created on-demand (and thus may not be present in the ODT), it should be present in memory representation of the document, and thus should be searchable.
NEW - reproducible with 18.104.22.168-22.214.171.124 and AOO 4.0 under Win7x64
normal - it would enhance consistency in UI (different dynamic content entities such as fields, numberings will behave the same as formulas in tables)
