--- Comment #1 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
Confirming. _Re-running_ a Find All search (from Find toolbar or Find & Replace
dialog) repositions the document canvas to the first match. 

After a Find All, the Find Next or Find Previous do not loose positioning after
edits vicinity of the match.

But not sure this is incorrect UX. Another run of Find All does the correct
thing and should reposition canvas to the initial find.

Seems what is needed is some ability to hold a visual highlight of the Find All
while moving through matches with Next/Previous. Now advancing clears the

User should not need to run another Find All, but we should offer to hold
original highlight until a new search is entered--or search is cleared (which
can't be done now).
