Description Rainer Bielefeld 2013-09-03 06:11:14 UTC
Steps how to reproduce with  "AOO 4.1.0-Dev – English  UI / German locale - [AOO410m1(Build:9750)  -  Rev. 1516435  2013-08-24]" on German WIN7 Home
Premium (64bit)", own separate user profile:

1. Open  Attachment 81339 [details] for Bug 123047
2. <control+f> to open 'Find & Replace' dialog	
3. click <More Options>
4. Select 'Search in Values'
5.  Type "a" into 'Search For' pane 
6. [Find all]
   As expected "Search key not found" message appears
7. [ok]
   Bug: cell selection disappears                           :-(

Additional info
a) Competitors:
 a1) LibreOffice 4: Seledtion will not be lost
 a2) SoftMaker FreeOffice: Selection will not be lost
 a3) Calligra: I have difficulties to understand how it works, but it seems 
     thatCalligra has no such "find all" function
 a4) Gnumeric 1.10.14 
     Works completely different. Here selection will be lost after
     SUCCESSFUL search
b) The bug is very annoying if you want to try different search key strings 
   one by one.
c) That never worked correctly in OOo, already reproducible in OOo 1.1.5
d) I think this problem already has been reported in
   "Bug 73542 - Calc loses selection when find & replace over a selection"
   what has been closed -  may be I misunderstood that report?

Can not reproduce in Rev. 1520602 Debian.
Comment 2 Rainer Bielefeld 2013-09-08 20:21:53 UTC
Hm, with LibO I see completely different behavior in WIN and Ubuntu Linux, what underpins Edwin's result that the problem is not reproducible with Linux.
Comment 3 Edwin Sharp 2013-09-09 05:25:40 UTC
This is what I see:

Am I missing something?

(In reply to Edwin Sharp from comment #3)
My mistake, in my instruction a step is missing between Step 1 and Step 2:

1.1 Select cell range A3:C13

I observe a strange side effect: After Step 7 the cell range will no longer be highlighted, but row/column headings for formerly selected range still will be highlighted.

As given in description and comment 4.
