Description kyoshida 2002-01-24 21:24:08 UTC
It would make more sense if one or more cells were already selected at the time
a user opens the find & replace dialog (Edit -> Find & Replace), the "Current
Selection Only" option would be already turned on.  This would be a good
enhancement in the direction of user-friendliness in my opinion.

I concur. Accepted
Comment 3 falko.tesch 2003-10-08 11:50:19 UTC
When having text selected (in any app) than the "Find & Replace"
dialogue should automatically switch on the "In slelection only" field.
This should apply to single as well as to multiple selection.

I consider this as a good idea too, but for the Q there is no chance
to change it, because it is no keyfeature for the Q and it would
affect also all apps. It is considered for 'Office later'.

I agree, but there is one more thing about cases like this:

When items hidded by button "More Option"/"Less Options" come selected, they
should appear (not hidded) when the window "Find & Replace" opens.

Some times, the user doesn't remember, or doesn't know (one machine for more
than one user) that those items are selected, and it's search/replace becomes
affected or wrong!

This issue is now partially fixed in Writer (selection only is marked when
something is selected), so why not to do the same in Calc? And sure, as the most
important of options, this options should be visible in unexpanded view of S&R

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
