Is there any keyboard shortcut in LibreOffice to 'find again'?

I want to hand-edit several occurrences of the same text in numerous places in a particular document. I can use Find to locate the text, but it is cumbersome to quickly move to subsequent occurrences of the text I want to change. Is there any shortcut key either set by default or else configurable in some way? Can anyone give any suggestion here? Or should I report a feature request?

Hello @jdpipe,

In the Find box, after you typed your Search string and pressed ENTER, the focus moves to the first Found occurrence in your text.

To move the focus to the next Found occurrence, you can just keep pressing ENTER again inside the Find box. ( Shift+ENTER for the previous occurrence )

Alternatively you could click on the arrow buttons next to the Find box, to move the focus to the previous/next occurrence.

Hope it helps, lib
