The defaults in the Find toolbar and the Find dialog are:

Direction: Rows Search in: Formulae

I normally want the opposite: Search in columns (because columns usually consist of more homogeneous data than columns) and search in Data (because usually I'm usually looking at the finished spreadsheet rather than constructing it, and even when constructing a spreadsheet, search for a formula is infrequent).

You cannot change the default from the toolbar and, if you change the default from the dialog then move to another sheet, it changes back to the unwelcome default.

Is there a way to change the default permanently?

Is there a reason for the current behaviour? If not, I propose to ask for a change.
