Description Tin Man 2014-01-28 02:42:17 UTC
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: 4.1.0.4 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 4.3.2.2, Win 8.1)

marked as enhancement request
