Description Arthur E. Baldwin 2014-07-29 16:39:07 UTC
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.

Added search box as example on the gallery

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

Would be definitely a good feature. I would add the search instead of add new theme, but anyway first make it available.

Search at all installed galleries and in addition search in online would be great.
