Description JLapham 2004-10-27 09:41:30 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
Hidden columns cannot be unhidden.  This only affects "Sheet2" and
"Sheet3" but not "Sheet1".

If you move "Sheet2" to before "Sheet1", you can show hidden columns.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a new spreadsheet (using OOo 1.1.1) and hide the "B" column. 
This column can be unhidden by highlighting the "A" and "C" columns
and selecting "show" from the right-mouse click menu.

2. Now, go to "Sheet2" and repeat the steps above.  You cannot show
the "B" column.  

Actual Results:  The column "show" option is not available

Expected Results:  Show the hidden columns

Additional info:

Apparently this bug does not exist in the stock OOo v1.1.2.  It does,
however, exist in the Debian version of OOo.  This bug existed in the
earlier versions of OOo for FC2 (v1.1.1).

I would deem this bug severity "high", because you cannot retreive the
data that is in a hidden column.

My original OOo bug report:

Problem appears to be sc-show-sensitize.diff in ooo-build, where the
Tab # isn't being propogated down the "is this row/col hidden" check,
so its effectively only checking the first sheet for hidden stuff.
Comment 2 Dan Williams 2004-11-02 16:33:12 EST
Should be fixed in 1.1.2-11
Comment 3 Dan Williams 2004-11-11 09:21:31 EST
Should be fixed now.
Comment 4 JLapham 2004-11-17 14:22:48 EST
Yup, works for me using the latest errata update.
