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.

Good feature.
Comment 2 webassistant5.tft+openoffice 2013-08-15 13:10:22 UTC
I just noticed this feature was also requested quite some time ago in Writer:

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.
