Description ftack 2006-12-05 09:12:02 UTC
When the user makes a selection then invokes Find & Replace, he probably wants
to search/replace within the selection. Currently in Calc, the default scope
remains the entire sheet, whether there was a selection active or not. This is
not consistent with the behaviour of Writer, where the scope by default is
limited to the current selection.

Thus, I suggest to implement that the "Current selection only" is automatically
checked when invoking Find&Replace with an active selection.
