LibreOffice Calc number of results

Hello :)
I am using SolydX 64 bit and LibreOffice 5.2.7.2.
When I press Ctrl+F, write the terms and click Find All it doesn't show the number of results.
Is it possible to activate this feature?
Thank you in advance

I'm not sure what you think SolydX can do about possibly missing features in LibreOffice. You'll have to ask on their forums https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/community-support/.

But I remember using LibreOffice on another linux distro that showed the number of results after following the steps that I mentioned in my previous post :-(

Well I just did, what you described on my desktop-system with SolydK. The results showed of in a textbox.
The same done on my notebook with SolydX. The results showed of in a textbox.
I would check my LibreOffice settings. If nothing helps, delete the LibreOffice folder in .config in your home folder. Do not forget to safe templates, if you have some. If that does not help, try uninstall and then reinstall LibreOffice.
That's what I would do.

Oh, it lists the results. You mean, it should show the sum?

Yes.
For example X results found where X is a number.

That's exactly what it does here. It shows a box with a list of all the items and the number of items found below it.
If others don't see that, it must be a setting somewhere (in LibreOffice). Or the LibreOffice version could be relevant. I have 6.1.1.

Yes. It seems to depend on the version of LibreOffice. I confirm, that with 6.1.1.2 it shows a sum below.
So, I recommend to install LibreOffice 6 via snap in SolydXK 9.

Install the packet "snapd" and dependencies. You can do that with a packetmanager or by typing in a terminal "sudo apt install snapd". Then in a terminal type: "sudo snap install libreoffice". You will find the icons then in the menu (office) after restarting Xfce. You can use both libreoffice-versions (5 and 6) as you like then.

Also available via Flatpak. I running LibreOffice Version: 6.1.2.1 via Flatpak and it works just fine. All items appear under Office in the Menu.
