find&replace when changes are on
Last modified: 2010-05-31 08:48:08 EDT
Description of problem:
When you are trying find&replace strings when changes are on the matched string actually never disappears - it is crossed only. This is really confusing and practically means that you are in a loop.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open oowrite, with some text.
2. Turn changes on.
3. Make some changes.
4. Try search for changed (crossed) strings.
Crossed strings are still searchable.
The crossed strings should be not searchable.
Find all works as expected. It is just suggestion, this issue have no serious impact to whole application.
The purpose of change tracking is to let you know not only what you have written, but also what you have deleted; being able to search in the deleted parts of the text is, IMHO, quite an important part of that. Moreover, it only applies when the changes are shown (i.e. Edit->Changes->Show is checked).
