Description Andrea Pescetti 2006-03-18 12:49:16 UTC
1. Create a new Calc document; write "abc" in A1, "def" in A2, "ghi" in A3.
2. Edit -> Find and Replace: Find "de", replace with "jk", Replace All.
3. "def" is correctly replaced by "jkf".
4. Select "gh", then Edit -> Find and Replace

5. "gh" appears in "Find" (as it happens in Writer), or "Find" is blank.

5. "de", i.e., the previously searched string, appears in "Find". This is
   absolutely misleading. If Find and Replace has to ignore the selected
   text, just leave the field blank.

I checked with "2.0.2  German version WIN XP: [680m5(Build9011)]" and can
confirm the reported behaviour.
Same result with "1.1.4 (German) WIN XP: [645m52 (Build 8824)]"

I can't find that anywhere would be "promised" that OOo help should transfer
marked cell area into the search pane, so it seems to work "as designed" - so

But I agree, it is worrying that this functionality from WRITER is not available
in calc. Should be unified.

As it is an enhancement request -> one for requirements
