Description jancs 2005-09-28 13:13:25 UTC
There are overlapping hotkeys in the dialogue Find&Replace - "o" - meaning "More
<O>ptions/Less <O>ptions" and "current selection <o>nly" in full view.

This is confirmed on Openofficeorg Writer 2.0 RC, although the "current 
selection <o>nly" is now greyed out (see attached document).

Should'nt this be a P5 (and not a P2) priority, since it is a "slightly 
inconsistent user interface"?

Greyed out option "current selection only"
Comment 4 jancs 2005-10-18 11:26:15 UTC
i think it's not P5, because, if you select another block of text without
closing the dialogue, the option is not grayed-out and it is impossible to turn
on "current selection only" without using additional pontig device or multiple
tab-bing - using just keyboard shortcut.
Comment 5 stefan.baltzer 2005-10-20 16:38:33 UTC
SBA: The Option "Current selection only" gets automatically checked when the selection goes 
over a paragraph end. 
When there is no selection in the document, "current selection only" makes no sense, therefore 
it is greyed out and unchecked. As soon as a single character is selected, the option is back 

The fact that the shortcut "~O" occurs twice when the dialog is expanded, does not limit its use. 
When <Alt>+<O> is used repeatedly, the focus toggles between the "More Options" button and 
the "In Current Selection only" checkbox. And both can be used (use keys <Enter> and 
<Space> when the right one is selected)

The scenario "Having the dialog open, changing the selection and not being able to reach the 
dialog without using the mouse" is not acceptable. 
You can not change the text selection without leaving the dialog. So WITH mouse, you can 
change the text selection and click back into the dialog. Now, WITHOUT a mouse you have to 
close the dialog to change the selection in the text. 

Being able to jump from the dialog to text and back would be an Enhancement issue and is NOT 
the subject here, because it has nothing to do with the double shortcut.

The double shortcut in English UI is a P5 issue.
