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

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

Actual:
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
enhancement?

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
