Description zridling 2003-02-20 23:56:19 UTC
In the Find & Replace (CTRL+F) dialog, there's a 'Find All' button. In Word, 
however, they add a checkbox to 'Highlight all items found in:' followed by a 
drop-down list that allows the user to search the Main Document, Headers and 
Footers, Footnotes, or Current Selection. After one runs a 'Find All' search 
with the this option checked, Word displays how many items matched that 
criteria. It would be great if Writer had this ability, adding the option to 
search the whole document, which included all its parts.
Similarly, in Calc. Excel provides a neatly columned table within its 'Find and 
Replace' dialog that displays exactly where each item can be found within the 
workbook/sheet/cell, etc., listing the number of items found in the status bar 
of the dialog. 
These small enhancements should be done in both Writer and Calc as they are 
both very useful. I like the Find/Replace dialog in Writer/Calc, but it needs a 
few more options. For example, it's HIGHLY convenient to search by format (not 
style!) in Excel. But Calc doesn't let you go that far, only searching by pre-
defined styles, which is restrictive rather than expansive.
