I've noticed recently that the way the Find (Edit->Find or ^F) feature
works in LO 7.2.7 is different - it treats the Find panel as a
separate window without actually giving you a separate window, and
won't let you do something else, like exit the search, without
dismissing the panel.

It does allow an escape to dismiss the panel IFF the focus is still in
the panel and I'm not trying to do something outside the panel or have
already typed <alt><tab>.

Am I alone in detesting this new "feature?" Am I wrong in seeing this as new?

It makes getting out of the search more difficult than it used to be,
without the (previous) actual sub-window that makes it clear (and easy
to dismiss) that I am not in the same place as outside the search.

I use Word now for my book writing (because LO is still not even close
to 100% compatible).

However, for almost all my spreadsheets and other writing, I prefer LO
because I'm used to it.

This "feature" drives me up the wall. It makes using "Find and
Replace" (^H) a more attractive option.

Is it worth a bug or should I find a way to adapt?
