Description _ gtzabari 2014-04-30 19:10:47 UTC
The keyboard shortcuts for the inline FIND/REPLACE dialog of the editor (accessed by hitting CTRL+H) need to be improved.

I frequently find myself needing to search for some text, replacing *most* instances but skipping others.

Currently, neither "Replace" nor "Next" have keyboard shortcuts so I am forced to use the mouse for this operation and it is quite slow for someone who is keyboard-centric.

This used to work in the past, but bug #222400 and older bugs caused this regression that was never fixed.

Note this issue is related to bug #222843 but isn't necessarily blocked by it.
Comment 2 Martin Balin 2016-07-07 07:29:39 UTC
This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
