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.

That's probably a bug. I don't know if anyone reported it, but I guess
someone should.
I will check to see if present also on Linux and file a bug. I could
not locate an existing bug for this.
On Linux, I do not seem to loose the ctl-F shortcut to the find tool

The problem is that when you intentionally REMOVE the shortcut for Ctrl+f
(Tools → Customization) you can't get it back, since Search is nowhere to
find. If you can find it, please tell us where, so we also can find it. I
run Linux (exclusively) and I can not find it.

On my Linux machine (assuming Tools>Customise is the same as

It is.

I can remove the shortcut Ctrl+f or change it
to something else and then delete it but Ctrl+f still activates the find
tool bar.

I just tested that and it doesn't work. Ctrl+f does nothing efter removing
it and reset won't bring it back once I left the Customize dialogue.
Fortunately I saved my settings before this test, so I could bring it back
by reading it back in.

I'm on Ubuntu Studio 20.04 (Xfce), LibreOffice

Did you set this with ”LibreOffice” or ”Writer” checked in the upper right
corner on the customize dialogue? When ”Writer is checked”, Ctrl+f is
empty, when ”LibreOffice” is selected, Ctrl+f is linked to Find (or Search
or whatever it's called in the English version).

As though it is hard coded.

Doesn't seem to be on my system, at least.

Kind regards

On my Mac it cannot be restored
without a reset.

Also the fact that cmd-F does not work and cannot be added to keyboard
shortcuts because there is no Find function.
Before customizing, you can save your current settings, and then
(hopefully) bring them back if something goes wrong. Maybe worth to
consider next time. :)

Kind regards

Hi again.
I am now wondering if the find dialogue is deprecated in 7.3.6. I
cannot find it explained in the help.
When you run the mouse over the find field at the bottom of the
the pop up tip states "Find text in values, to search in formulas
the dialog" which may be leading me astray.

You can use the find/replace dialogue with a number of search
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.
Cmd F now opens another strange dialogue requesting search for

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
* 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
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

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

Thank you
