Description Steve Hall 2005-01-29 18:29:06 EST
Description of problem:

The default paste behavior in Calc shifts cells, which is both
non-standard and unseen in the previous release. (And is redundant
with an option provided in Paste Special.)

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

1.1.3 Calc
Comment 1 Dan Williams 2005-01-31 12:57:12 EST
confirmed, this was caused by an upstream ooo-build patch added by
Novell that we'll have to disable.
Comment 2 Dan Williams 2005-01-31 12:57:56 EST
Specific changelog entry is:

2005-01-27  Michael Meeks  <michael.meeks@novell.com>

	* patches/OOO_1_1_4/apply, patches/OOO_1_1_3/apply:
	disable sc-paste-insert-rows.diff, very odd / unexpected
	behavior hurting users.

Comment 3 JLapham 2005-02-01 07:24:12 EST
Dan, I just stumbled across this bug as well, any plans to re-release?  

This bug makes using calc basically useless, I totally screwed up a complex
spreadsheet layout today as parts of columns and rows got pushed around during a
series of pastes... ugh.
Comment 4 Ian Pilcher 2005-02-01 12:55:12 EST
Shouldn't this be high priority?
Comment 5 Steve Hall 2005-02-01 21:30:08 EST
Ian, agreed, although I can't prioritize. :)

How about we just bump up the severity as this is a nearly
incapacitating behavior/bug.

Comment 7 Elson, Del 2005-02-03 18:30:38 EST
Confirmed that this bug appears on multiple distributions, see:

Oddly enough the OOo folks don't appear to think it's their problem. 
Somebody hit them with a clue stick please.
Comment 8 Dan Williams 2005-02-03 19:54:29 EST
Technically its not their problem as the code is a patch in the
ooo-build sources.  Vendors like Red Hat, Novell, Suse, and Debian use
common sources and patches from ooo-build.
Comment 9 Ian Pilcher 2005-02-07 15:59:39 EST
Wasn't there a plan to have an update out late last week?
Comment 10 Dan Williams 2005-02-07 16:27:18 EST
Build is pushed to rawhide already, and an FC-3 updates-testing build
will be available soon... (its built already and needs to be mirrored)
Comment 11 JLapham 2005-02-07 21:02:36 EST
Dan, is this new build going to also fix the "cannot unhide a row"

Comment 12 Dan Williams 2005-02-10 09:15:04 EST
No, unfortunately, that's a separate beast... :(  Hopefully next
update after this one.
Comment 13 Mike Cotton 2005-02-11 14:12:42 EST

Can you give us a guestimate as to when the FC3 patch will be released?  

Many Thanks. 
Comment 14 Dan Williams 2005-02-11 16:27:10 EST
Its been pushed and will trickle out to mirrors in the next 24 hours
or so.

Comment 15 Jan Slupski 2005-02-20 09:46:24 EST
Please check if bug 146883 is not related. It have appeared in the
same release, and is also very painful.
Comment 16 Dan Williams 2005-02-20 10:46:51 EST
No, bug 146883 is not related.
