FIND & REPLACE FOCUS
PLEASE ADD AN OPTION TO USE FIND AND REPLACE LIKE VERSION 1902 Build 11328.20420. In our accounting world the feature was extremely handy. Now that I have to use extra steps every time I want to enter a new value in the Find and Replace Dialog box our tasks add at least 30 minutes a day on. I'm sure there is a reason you removed the feature however, giving users the option would benefit everyone. Thank you!

Sorry for my late reply. Appreciate your information. I was trying to download and install Office 1902 Build 11328.20420 from my side and test on it. Yes, I found that the cursor does go back to “Find and Replace” box after I click OK of the message so that I don’t have to move the mouse and click the “Find and Replace box to key in the value which it does cause some inconveniences when searching the value. I think this change properly be removed for some reasons in the latest version. I suggest you can post this feedback on Excel UserVoice. It is the most efficient way to let product team aware this problem. Thank you for your understanding.
