Description Frantisek Hanzlik 2013-08-22 07:13:01 EDT
Description of problem:
Any text document viewer _should_ be capable do (optional) case-sensitive search,
but it seems as Atril lacks this functionality, and searching is implemented somehow badly. Concretely:

- button/checkbox for specifying case-significant/caseless searching missing (tested on PDF and DjVu documents)

- entering text with upper-case character in "Find:" results to not finding
text in document, although this text is there! (tested with DjVu document)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Expected results:
Searching function should be able do at least optional case-sensitive/nonsensitive search, eventualy more advanced search options as searching text on word boundary, searching by regexp etc.

Broken searching in DJVU documents should be corrected (e.g. djview4 DjVu viewer search docoments without problems)

Comment 6 Frantisek Hanzlik 2014-03-21 06:56:54 EDT
Thanks for elimination this problem. It would be good if the version for F19 was available, as I have no F20 yet. Or I can try build F19 package yourself.
