Searching in the selected range only with Find & Replace

In Calc searching happens in the selected range if there are non-empty cells
selected, as the “Current selection only” option of the Find & Replace window
is then turned on by default. This is good.

In the Find bar however even if there is a cell range with non empty cells
selected the search happens in the whole sheet.

I think it would be a sane default to assume that users who selected a range
and start searching with the Find bar want to limit the search to the range,
just like we assume it in case of the Find & Replace window.

Steps to reproduce:
1.      In Calc type some text in a few cells
2.      Select a cell range with some, but not all of the cells
3.      Press Ctrl-H and search for the word just typed
4.      Calc searches only in the selected range
5.      Press Ctrl-F and try to search for the same string with the Find bar.
6.      Notice that it finds results outside the selected range as well.

Actual results:
Searching with the Find bar happens on the whole sheet.

Expected results:
Searching with the Find bar should happen only inside the selected cell range
if there is one.
