Glad if my inputs did sort this out in some way.
I haven't referred to this topic in the guide.
 Yes! few aspects are actually confusing for the end user to understand,
even I have been changing it to be even more user friendly.

Have a nice day!

Kind regards

Thank you all for the suggestions and research.
Shravani - I do see the behavior you describe and afterward, the text makes
better sense.
As an "end user" I think this behavior is very confusing.  I would expect
the Find/Replace to work as described in Find and Replace Paragraph
Styles.  I will have to let this sink in and see if I can find a better way
to describe it for those first using it.  The expectation of choices
popping up in the Find and the Replace boxes really threw me off and I
think it may throw others off who are first using the software.  I welcome
any suggestions or opinions.
Thanks again!

Hi Toni,

I just looked into the steps you have drafted in your first email, when
looked into online help I found related content in the below link which
might answer your query:

The link says "For example, if you search for the Font attribute, all
instances of text that do not use the default font are found". So I guess
the "Font" function works only to search for the font which doesn't
in the document. Same with the font color option as well when font color
changed in the document and the "Find next" option is clicked with the
"Font color" attribute selected, it works. I tried both the options and
worked for me as per whats mentioned in the link.

Hope my explanation makes sense.

Kind regards

Hello Team!

I could use some guidance.  I am double checking some things in
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
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
say the search looks for changes from the default, I changed some of
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
want replaced clicking on the FORMAT button and then selecting the
formatting of the selected text that you are looking for. In the
field, enter the text you want to use as the replacement, click
and select the formatting you want for that text.

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

Hello Team,

I am reviewing *Writer Chapter 3 Working with Text Advanced*..
find and replace techniques -->  **Find and replace text

For example, following these steps below, no options appear under

    Select the attribute you wish to search for from the list in
    Attributes dialog and click *OK*. The names of the selected

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

Thank you!
