Hello Team!

I could use some guidance.  I am double checking some things in updating
the Writer Chapter 3 Guide.  I can not get the *Find & Replace >
option to work at all.  Should we report this as a bug?  Do we delete
section from the manual?  *Format* works fine.  It is just the
search that doesn't work.

Please see the steps in my previous email below.  Since the instructions
say the search looks for changes from the default, I changed some of the
font colors but still no options show up in the *Find*: box.

Thank you!

Font, font color and a lot of others can be found by selecting what you
want replaced clicking on the FORMAT button and then selecting the
formatting of the selected text that you are looking for. In the replace
field, enter the text you want to use as the replacement, click FORMAT
and select the formatting you want for that text.

For some reason ATTRIBUTES is only available for the field that you want
replaced--making it rather useless.

Hello Team,

I am reviewing *Writer Chapter 3 Working with Text Advanced*..  Under
find and replace techniques -->  **Find and replace text attributes and
formatting, *I am unable to search for attributes such as *Font *or
color*.  Nothing appears in the *Find *box to select.
For example, following these steps below, no options appear under the
box to choose from:


    On the *Find & Replace* dialog (with *Other Options* displayed),
    the *Attributes* button.

    Select the attribute you wish to search for from the list in the
    Attributes dialog and click *OK*. The names of the selected
    appear under the *Find:* box. For example, to search for text that
    been changed from the default font color, select the *Font Color*

I am using LibreOffice Writer version on a Windows 10 PC,  Is
anyone else able to get this working?

Thank you!

Kind regards,
