Description bonaventur 2006-09-27 22:27:08 UTC

I came accross the following problem with OOWriter 2.0.2: if a word (or an 
expression) is present only in the footnotes, and not in the body of the text, 
the function "search and replace" has a strange (and defectuous) behavior: 
after the end of the document has been reached, it is not able to find all 

I first noticed this behavior with OOWriter 2.0.2 (FR) on XP, but the same 
happens under Linux. 

If it helps, I can send an odt file that reproduces the problem.

A "FInd & replace" issue -> reassigned to SBA.

Confirming with OO 2.0.4 on Win XP - "Find and replace" will not circle in the 
document if the word is found in footnote.

SBA->AMA: As discussed, please have a look. 
(1): When I add two more footnotes (including the O-word) on another page, the
search gets stuck in the last footnote. I adjusted the summary to meet the findings.

(2) This seems to be another "very old friend", see issue 12166. That
description said "...seems to occur in an unsystematic way, unfortunately I was
not able to reproduce it consistently..." It was closed because the reporter
said he could not reproduce it anymore. Wrong. With this bugdoc it is easy to
reproduce and I believe this problem has never vanished.

(3): For funny variations, toy with "search backwards". For me, this "worked" up
to "F&R dialog does not do anything when [Find] is pressed" :-)

Reassigned to Andreas.
