Summary: KPDF Search exit behavior not consistent
Platform: Unlisted Binaries
AssignedTo: unassigned-bugs kde org
ReportedBy: nino ecn purdue edu
Version: 3.5.9 (using KDE 3.5.9)
Installed from: Unspecified Linux
When using KPDF and searching for a word within the PDF there is a behavior that causes the CNTRL-F (find) or F3 (continue search) to stop working.
If I search for a word and it does not find that work, I can either "click" on the "ok" box that is present OR just hit "enter" to close the dialog box. Either method (mouse or keyboard) closes the dialog box BUT subsequent commands are now affected...
Method 1 - "click" the "ok" button
This method will allow me to now hit "cntrl-f" and issue a new search
Method 2 - hitting the "enter" keypad
This method closes the dialog box also BUT now using "cntrl-f" no longer brings up a new search window nor can I hit F3 to continue the search. Hitting "enter" breaks the ability of KPDF to recognize subsequent hotkey commands. I "can" continue searching by going to the menus and pulling down "find" or "find again" but I don't believe this is the way it "should" work; at least, this hasn't been my experience with most GUIs.
Thanks in advance.
