Instead of the Down arrow, how about making the S&R button a toggle like text styles?
Can the S&R be un-docked?

Added a new cover Image and discovered the process has changed (IMHO for the better). Images can now be reused simply.

The Add Image button now brings up a list of the Images that are listed in the Book Brower. You must first add the image there using the right-click menu (Add Existing), then the image name appears on the place image tool list.

There were options for things like this previously. I don't see a reason to have multiple ways to define case sensitive/insensitive operations.

That's the plan but I won't make it a guarantee.

I won't target it for 0.5. Possibly in a later release.

I would suggest that the Supplied dictionaries be installed with the program
AND
Reserve the current location for Custom User (added words) and User supplied (alternate). Open office has a wordbook folder in the user hidden folder.
This allows different users (on the machine) to have personal dictionaries and still use the stock one.

The 'Replace' and 'Look' labels could do with some left padding.
Not too sure that 'Look' is the best term.

Well, somewhere in the Sigil program directory. There are several subdirectories already for translations and so on. I would expect it there.

When locating text to be corrected, while proof reading, being able to select case sensitive/insensitive is an important tool. I'm not sure what other ways to define case sensitive/insensitive you are referring to.

Please consider restoring this function.

I think it was 'Look in' or maybe 'Find in' previously - either of which help.

As for the location the search results, using the status bar instead of modal dialog seems ok. If messages are moved to within the search box then it could be confusing as now the user has both the status box and the find box to look at for information. Hard to say without testing. At the moment its hard to tell due to the extra wide windows I get when searching.

One thing that is also a bit confusing is that the search does not wrap around and sometimes I forget to go to the top of the document before searching. But of course if it did wrap around then you might not catch when you're finished

Exactly. Most people would expect it to be case-insensitive by default, and they would certainly expect to have an option to change it. Having to use regex just to do quick simple searches that ignore case seems a poor trade-off than an extra option/button. Perhaps instead of a checkbox for case-sensitive you could modify the dropdown to Normal - Case Sensitive, Normal - Case Insensitive, Regex; although it might not look great. Using a checkbox for case-sensitive can be confusing as its not clear if this would apply in Regex mode or not.

I wondered about this as well especially since S&R box is docked and can't be undocked (although I asked about this before I can't think of a reason I'd want it undocked since its finally in a very convenient out of the way place already - even on my laptop screen there's still enough space for text). Making the Find/Search button a toggle like Quick Settings or book/code view makes some sense - clicking it now it seems like it doesn't do anything half the time But I would still want the X on the window to close it to be consistent. There is also a case for putting a menu entry in View to control showing/not showing it as well - although I wouldn't remove the search icon.

Yes, well Strahinja originally setup all paths to include his name. In order to change it I would also be forced to change it for settings too. With a later version I plan on making the change to sigil-ebook but I want to put it off because not losing user settings is more important than path ascetics at this time.

Multiple drop down choice for in/sensitive operation would work and is the most intuitive suggestion so far. Unless someone can suggest something better I'll make this change.

Thanks, this seems to work perfectly. Downloaded and built the source (very easy to do), made the changes and now the windows are the right size and can be resized correctly. The only odd thing still left is that when selecting the down arrow to list the Find history some of the entries are too wide for the screen but this isn't a real issue so far.
