Description bonaventur 2006-09-27 22:27:08 UTC
Hi, 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 occurences. 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. Regards, Marc

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. Notes: (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.
