Repeatedly search doesn't work backwards in kwrite and kate
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:36 EST
Description of problem:
If "Find backwards" option is checked before searching, "Find next F3" doesn't
work as expected while "Find Previous Shift+F3" does its job. If it's
unchecked, the opposite happens. Put it another way, repeatedly search can
only be done forwards. This is very inconvenient when repeatedly backwards
search is wanted especially in a large file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a test file
for i in `seq 10`; do echo "line$i" >> test; done
2. Open "test" using kwrite or kate
3. Go to bottom and search(Ctrl+F) "line" with "Find backwards" option
checked. Then press F3 to find next.
"line" in line9 should be highlighted
Other editors like kedit and vi support repeatedly backwards search pretty
Kwrite and kate in fc4 have similar issue.
i will push new kdelibs-3.5.3-0.4.fc5 in FC5-update-testing today. It should
fix this problem. Thanks for your report.
The kdelibs-3.5.3-0.4.fc5 works fine as expected. Could you consider updating
the kdelibs in FC4 as well?
Thanks in advance!
