Description Kumāra 2013-11-13 06:02:03 UTC
Please add this option to the Find & Replace tool: Preserve Case

E.g., say in Find we have "cup" and Replace "mug". When the tool finds "Cup" (with the "preserve case" option on), clicking Replace should replace "Cup" with "Mug" (and not "mug").

Although I'm specifying this for Writer, I suppose this can be added for the F&R tool in other components too. But let's start with just Writer first.

No one else thinks this is worth adding?
Comment 2 Cor Nouws 2016-09-25 18:48:39 UTC
I do like it, Kumāra.

I suppose this lacks attention because the feature is available (with the name "Preserve capitalization") in an extension called Alternative Find & Replace.

Please add keyword 'needsUXEval' and CC 'libreoffice-ux-advise@lists.freedesktop.org' if input from UX is needed.
