Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 756938
No menu if searching text in LO with ctrl+F or edit/search
Last modified: 2011-11-25 09:49:25 EST
Description of problem:
Opening some LO document and trying to search any text fails, because no menu pops up for entering the text to search. No such problem in F15, only in F16
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.open some LO document
2.ctrl+f for searching text
No popup menu appears for entering the search text
Ctrl+F (and the new menu item Edit->Find) now opens search toolbar (by default at the bottom of the screen). The old Find & Replace dialog is accessible through Edit->Find & Replace (like before) or Ctrl+Alt+F.

I updated tentatively to version 188.8.131.52-3.fc16.x86_64 (from updates-testing repo). Then I see the following effects:
1. ctrl+f (edit->find) *does NOTHING, no menu opens, no toolbar opens*, same buggy effect as in version 184.108.40.206-2.fc16.x86_64
2. ctrl+alt+f (edit->find&replace) opens a search/replace menu
Works fine here, in both English and German locale. It might be a problem in your configuration: could you move ~/.libreoffice/3/user/registrymodifications.xcu away and try again? And if it works after that, could you attach the orignal config. file here?

Indeed, it works after that. I will attach the orinal registrymodifications.xcu
Created attachment 536264 [details]
the original (bgous?) registrymodifications.xcu
Sorry, I forgot to mention that I only was successful after switchting to the English locale; no success with if using the German locale.
After removing some wrong controls, crtl+alt+f and ctrl+f now work flowlessly.
