I am using OpenOffice 3.0 on an Ubuntu 9.04 system. When I select the Open entry on the File menu in the Writer program, there is a "Search" entry at the top of the "Places" left side column in the window. If I select that "Search"entry a field is displayed at the top of the window that looks like I can enter a text string to search for files that contain the text string. After entering a word that I know can be found in several of the files in the Documents folder and hitting the keyboard Enter key, nothing happens. I figure a list of filenames that contain the text string I entered would be displayed somewhere.
Am I using the function incorrectly or is there a bug?
