Guess I should have elaborated.

There is also a button for "Replace All"

However, there is no check box for "Prompt on Replace"

All other word processors have this feature.  Only LibreOffice does not. 
Don't know about Open Office since I have not used it since LibreOffice 2.x.

I even use a text editor called HTML-Kit that is about 20 years old that
offers the "Prompt on Replace" feature.

Basically, it allows me to "Replace All" but a few occurrences.  Say I have
a 50 page document and want to replace a certain word that I know occurs 50
times.  However, there may be about 5 occurrences I do not want to replace. 
It is easier to click the "Replace All" button with the "Prompt on Replace"
checkbox checked.  Then as it goes through and finds the word, it stops,
prompting on whether to complete the "replace."

Clarified enough?


What i do is I first press <replace> and that finds the first occurrence and if i don't want to 
replace it, i press <find next>, I then either press <replace> or <find next> for every occurrence.
