Subject Re: [AOOo 4.0] dev wishlist (Re: Starting a conversation on AOOo 4.0)

I'd like some long standing feature requests to be implemented. 
especially that when you perform a replace all, the cursor is returned 
to the location where you were instead of leaving you where the last 
item was replaced. That's a big time saver for people who do a lot of 
editing of for instance manuscripts. You can then at page 150 suddenly 
want to replace some word with something else everywhere in the document 
and continue where you were without fuss. Now you first have to enter 
some weird character sequence, or a bookmark, do the repalce, then 
search the crazy character sequence or use the bookmark to return. It 
has been discussed a lot in the issue tracker, but for some reason the 
developers weren't impressed by the arguments of the users.
See https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=8288
It'd require very little coding.
