--- Comment #3 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
On Windows 10 Pro 64-bit en-US with
Version: (x64)
Build ID: ea7cb86e6eeb2bf3a5af73a8f7777ac570321527
CPU threads: 8; OS: Windows 6.19; UI render: default;

Confirming STR of the non-selection with just the currently active cell with
cursor focus, or the misbehavior of the "Current selection only" option which
shows active with just the one cell with cursor focus as a "range".

Selecting one additional cell produces valid search result. 

So seems like we have a logic flaw and test the view shell for HasSelection()
at [1] enabling the "Current selection only" option-with just the one cell with
cursor focus.  

Is it a valid selection range or not? 

   If it is--the search needs to accommodate a one cell range.

   If not--need to keep the Selection Btn disabled.

>From UX perspective, searching just a single cell is not a common use, but why
not? Could be of some use in macro to conditionally test a cell.
