Problem description: 

This is not a bug, but an enhancement request.

After installing the two Open ClipArt modules and attempting to insert pictures from the "Gallery", I noticed that there is a very large number of pictures to choose from, but no way to quickly and easily search for ClipArt on a particular subject.

This enhancement request would probably also affect all of the other sub-projects such as Calc, Presentation, Base, etc. because of the LibreOffice modular nature.

Cordially,

Arthur Baldwin
Operating System: All
Version: 4.2.5.2 release

Sounds like a reasonable request: Status -> NEW

UX will want to make some suggestions on how this search could look, so Component -> ux-advise.

That is definitely a needed feature. In the proposal for a rework of this deck [1] we added a filter (aka search) input. 

Initial component was Writer, but the change would be needed for all modules. The gallery is paramount for Draw it's maybe better hosted there.
