Description webassistant5.tft+openoffice 2013-08-12 14:25:03 UTC
Created attachment 81320 [details] The "Find All" browse tree in Excel after using the button In Microsoft Excel there is a very useful feature during a search that can pull a list using the "Find All" button. In OpenOffice it only highlights the items on the sheet, but does not provide a list. Such a list can be quickly gone through using the arrow keys to jump to the line you need in a 10,000 row document, vs. clicking "Find" numerous times or browsing around the document trying to find what you're looking for. I am attaching a screenshot of this feature in hopes a similar one could be included in OpenOffice.

I just noticed this feature was also requested quite some time ago in Writer: https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=63202 Might be useful to merge these as a metabug for all Office applications since it's useful regardless of the specific task. Thanks for confirming this though, looking forward to implementation.

The confirmation means I think it is a good idea. I wish I could also implement it but I'm no programmer.
