Description Frank Steinmetzger 2010-05-19 04:41:52 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.4.3)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages

Though KDE4's way of a bottom search bars are to some extent better than KDE3's style of floating dialogues, Okular is missing one important feature concerning search:
It can become quite tedious to search through a document of 100s of pages, which may contain the keyword at lots of places.

It would be great if Okular could show all search results in an overview list, where the user can click on each item to jump to the respective position in the document. Said list could be placed as another item in the navigation pane and be invoked by a button on the bottom search bar.

As a possible goodie that springs to mind is to incorporate the document structure into the results, i.e. get a treeview similar to this (notice that chapters without results don't show up):

Document chapter 1
  + Result 1 in chapter 1
  + Result 2 in chapter 1
Document chapter 3
  Document chapter 3.2
    + Result 1 in chapter 3.2

I really hope someone could fix this. This is important to me too.

Chrome's dynamic scrollbar

A simple alternative enhacement would be to implement a dynamic scrollbar similar to the one found in Chrome's PDF viewer.
