step 1

1. Make any changes in slides. Don't save them.
2. Find word or letter that are not present on slides using "Edit -> Find & Replace". Press search from beginning if asked.
3. You should got "Search key not found" message.
4. The slides list will be collapsed without a reason. Latest operations cannot be undone.
5. After reopening unsaved changes won't be availible.

I tried to replicate the problem with AOO 3.4.1 and on Windows 7. 

I found the screen shot file names very useful (visible after downloading). I see from step 3 image that the AOO is in Master slide view mode and not in Normal view.

I could reproduce the same situation as on image 3 when I opened Master slide view and that could be described as collapsed.

1.	I created my own new presentation from template. I use all default values. I add only name, subject and ideas as last step in wizard. It has 7 slides.
2.	I didn’t save. 
3.	I searched for none existing string (“1”, “asdasd”) and got the same dialogs (search from beginning -> push/click Yes -> Search key not found)
4.	I dismiss the dialog by clicking OK or any other way
5.	I open Master Slide view. View > Master > Slide Master or Click Master Pages in the AOO Tasks pane. 

I get the same situation as on step 3 image.

The slides are not visible in Master view by the nature of this feature and to see the slides the Master view has to be closed from “Close Master View” button on Master View toolbar which is also visible on image 3. See

The step 5 in my comment is several clicks and this makes me hesitate about it. 

Olya, please give more detailed description how you dismiss the “Search key not found” dialog. Was there possibility that the Master slide view was accidentally opened here and you, as reporter, were not aware of this and the behavior of this feature? The slides are not collapsed or deleted in that case and the view has to be changed back to normal as described above to view the slides again.

There could be that the slides were still collapsed or deleted, but then please give screen shot in Normal view to see the affect.

I was checking this and regrettably is true... I checked it in the version most recent that is 4.0.
The result are the next: 
I wrote a text and when I wanna change a word for other... Selecting 'Replace All' the accion is successful but if I select the option 'Replace' automatically all text  change in the tab 'Normal' to:
Second Outline Level
-Third Outline Level
 -Fourth Outline Level
  -Fifth Outline Level

but in the others tabs conserves the prev text.
Sorry but I can't attach the images but the result is the same with you.
I will go to report

Why does the title of this issue say "crash"?  I don't see a crash described in the description or comments?  Is this correct?
Comment 6 Andre 2013-06-17 15:57:03 UTC
If removed "(crash)" from the title as the description does not describe a crash.
Therefore it is also not a release blocker.

I am not sure that I understand the problem.  The first comments seems to indicate that undo does not work after a (unsuccessful) search.  This would not exactly be a bug.  Searching in Impress does not only search the content of all slides but also that of notes, handout and master pages.  For this is has to switch views while searching.  Undo information is cleared prior to switching views.  Changing this is out of scope at the moment.
