Description Matthew Francis 2015-01-19 11:48:27 UTC
This seems like a problem specific to OSX - I can't reproduce on Linux. It occurs in and but not* however, see below)

Steps to reproduce
1. In a blank Writer document, type "asdasdasd"
2. Move the cursor back to the start of the line
3. Cmd+F to open the find bar
4. Search for "asd"
5. Use the find bar buttons to move to the next match until the search wraps to the beginning of the line

Expected result:
- "Reached the end of the document" appears immediately

Actual result:
- "Reached the end of the document" appears only after the mouse moves off the button

(If Cmd+G with the find bar focused is used to advance the search instead, the wrap message never appears until the mouse is moved over the find bar. This does also occur with

Confirming on OSX 10.10.1 with LO

I do see a notification at the bottom left hand corner of the Writer window indicating that the end of the document has been reached, but it is overlaid on top of the other UI elements.

Sorry, Matthew, actually, re-reading your description, I get the End of document reached message immediately with no lag, so I can't confirm.

Demosntrates the issue twice using the find bar button and once with the keyboard

So I just tried this and I'll add two additional observations that might be relevant. 

1. Following Matthew's steps but using the 'Find Next' button as opposed to the 'Next Element' button the 'Reached the end of the document' message appears for me as expected.

2. If I cycle through the three sub strings just pressing 'Return' the  'Reached the end of the document' never shows up. The search just wraps.
