Further to this, if I customise the Edit menu and remove the Find
command, I cannot add it back in as it does not appear in the list of
commands. A reset will see Find back in the edit menu.

Hi again.
I am now wondering if the find dialogue is deprecated in 7.3.6. I
cannot find it explained in the help.

Yes, they removed the Find dialogue long ago, now it's just that tool bar
thing and you need to use Find/Replace for the advanced stuff. I'm not
happy with it either, but it is what it is.

When you run the mouse over the find field at the bottom of the window
the pop up tip states "Find text in values, to search in formulas use
the dialog" which may be leading me astray.

You can use the find/replace dialogue with a number of search options,
are the options you see not working in the find dialogue also not
available in the find/replace dialogue.

If I close the find tool bar at the bottom of the window, Edit>Find
will open it again, no Find dialogue.

Yes, that's by design, as far as I know.

Kind regards

Cmd F now opens another strange dialogue requesting search for command.

Good evening
I just came across something I do not understand (and so far could
not find being mentioned in the manuals etc.).
Using Windows 10, LibreOffice
I noticed in Calc that when I try to find something, in the find dialog
* Match case = greyed out = not working
* Formatted display = OK
* Entire cells = greyed out = not working
* All sheets = OK

Now, why would these functions be disabled? I tried to find something
under tools, but so far without luck.
And I am quite sure I was able to search the data with Match case
I tried to reboot the computer. That did not change anything either.

1)    Is there a reason for this behavior?
2)    Is there a way to fix it?

Thank you
