Description bremmons 2013-11-27 18:16:09 UTC
Problem description: Currently, the CTRL+F search function does not change its behavior by the settings you can set in the Find & Replace window, nor is it possible to set defaults for that behavior. It would be helpful to be able to set options like Regex, Similarity search, Search in all sheets, etc. by default.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Press CTRL+F and search.
2. ....
3. ....

Current behavior:
Your search is performed using basic system behavior, assuming all options are unchecked.

Expected behavior:
Search is performed based on most recent state of the "Find & Replace" window, or by user-specified defaults if that window hasn't been opened or changed.
