Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 863723
calc: cut/paste from other source changes size of receiving cell

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I was attempting to change the "Distribution" from openoffice.org to LibreOffice but must have hit enter or something. This bugzilla took that as a submit apparently.
I was trying to cut/paste information from an email into cells in the spread sheet lookalike. The formatting seems to default to bottom with wrap on which causes me to change the format of each cell into which I paste.
From what application were you pasting ?, evolution ?
I'm reading email via Firefox.
You mean you are using some webmail thing through firefix, i.e. we're talking html paste from firefox. Or you mean thunderbird ?
Is there any way we could reproduce here what exactly your problem is ?
Thanks for your query.
I'm using FF Nightly to connect to mail.yahoo.com.
I read my email using FF Nightly and left button click on the beginning of an area that I want to copy/paste into a LibreOffice. Typically this is just text, I'm not trying to do anything fancy. When I end the selection process, I either use ctrl-C/ctrl-V (copy/paste) or just use the middle mouse button in the desired cell. When I do the paste process, LibreOffice gives me a prompt asking me if I want to proceed and some other options. I proceed and get the text, sometimes in just one cell and sometimes in sets of cells starting with the first cell I want to paste into and cells downward from that cell (multi line copy/paste?). The attributes of the cells are all changed from what I want (top, left) to what LibreOffice wants to use.
Does this help you?
I think it the (effectively) auto-wrap on paste feature that's bugging you here and resizing the cells to get the text to fit in the existing widths. An extra checkbox to disable this on paste might be the easiest solution.
Your description sounds like a hit on the behavior.
Sometimes the paste goes to 3 cells downwards which also appears to substantiate your diagnosis.
If you want me to test any code changes, I'll be more than happy to do that for you.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '16'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
