There is currently no way to quickly look through the search results of a query initiated from the find bar.
Ideally, LibreOffice should highlight all the matches as the query is typed into the searchbox, similarly to how Chromium behaves.
Operating System: All
Version: 18.104.22.168 release
Please try "Find All" in the "View/Find & Replace" control. Is it OK ?
You specified "...from the find bar..." and "...as the query is typed into the searchbox..." so I wonder whether you look for more. Feel free to detail the enhancement you expect (I think that BZ is not the right place).
Any case, not a bug.

Nope, not what I was getting at.
I meant seeing at a glance what the results are, not selecting all of them.
(For example, see the way Chromium shows search results.)

Bugzilla is certainly a place to file enhancement requests.
(If you don't think so, then what is the right place?)
Valid request. And as Mirek2 says: Try chromium to see how it's done properly.
for me this sounds very interesting (reproducible with LO 22.214.171.124, Win 8.1)

Live (as-you-type) search term highlighting in Safari; LibreOffice should aim to implement this
Enhancement reported in 2014. No reason for a high severity status
Number of duplicates, Xisco! What does the year of reporting has to do with anything?

Just 2... anyway, let's the UX Team work on this, they might have a proposal on how to fix it
We have a dialog in Calc showing all results (see also bug 88489). Some more convenient and common solution as known from browsers, for example, would be a nice to have, though with low importance. And of course, as you type would be quite cool.
