How can I disable the silly dialog that pops up after every search&replace on a Calc sheet? After correcting a column of 250,000 numbers it tries to write 250,000 cell addresses into a list box which takes by a magnitude more time than the replacement process.
If such feature is really, really desired by the Excel fans, then it should be possible to disable it. Furthermore, such feature should be supervised by an experienced Calc developer who knows that a search run returns a collection com.sun.star.sheet.SheetCellRanges with interface XSheetCellRanges having method getRangeAddressesAsString. In my case, this method would return one string "Sheet1.A1:A250000"
