[Libreoffice-ux-advise] [Bug 125282] New: UX: The Find bar should search in “Current selection only” if a cell range is selected

https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125282

            Bug ID: 125282
           Summary: UX: The Find bar should search in “Current selection
                    only” if a cell range is selected
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: 6.3.0.0.alpha0+ Master
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Keywords: needsUXEval
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Calc
          Assignee: [hidden email]

Searching in the selected range only with Find & Replace

In Calc searching happens in the selected range if there are non-empty cells
selected, as the “Current selection only” option of the Find & Replace window
is then turned on by default. This is good.

In the Find bar however even if there is a cell range with non empty cells
selected the search happens in the whole sheet.

I think it would be a sane default to assume that users who selected a range
and start searching with the Find bar want to limit the search to the range,
just like we assume it in case of the Find & Replace window.

Steps to reproduce:
1.      In Calc type some text in a few cells
2.      Select a cell range with some, but not all of the cells
3.      Press Ctrl-H and search for the word just typed
4.      Calc searches only in the selected range
5.      Press Ctrl-F and try to search for the same string with the Find bar.
6.      Notice that it finds results outside the selected range as well.

Actual results:
Searching with the Find bar happens on the whole sheet.

Expected results:
Searching with the Find bar should happen only inside the selected cell range
if there is one.

hm, I confirm in

Version: 6.3.0.0.alpha0+
Build ID: 773ac3abbf8ab1343367e51b1774d2ee1f8c4f49
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 6.1; UI render: default; VCL: win;
Locale: ru-RU (ru_RU); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

but I don't like as it's now

better to make checkbox "Find only in selection" in F&R dialog and in Find
tollbar too

Now if I want change selection for finding without closing the F&R dialog, then
next finding will be for all cells on sheet regardless of the current
selection.

May be need fill an another enhancement about it

I disagree here. The find bar is overloaded options right now and adding
another option makes this UI control even more heavy. In my opinion it's just
two different ways to search with a more straightforward option for the find
bar that just has "Find All". And I'm definitely against assuming the user
wants always to search in the current selection.

More opinions please.

No more input so taking my opinion here and resolve as wfm. The workflows are
just different between the find toolbar and the dialog.
