Description Unknown 2003-01-14 02:27:02 UTC
When in a table cell, if you are in the middle of entering some data and it looks like an auto-format element (a date, time, number, etc), and you save the document (either explicitly or via a timed auto-save), the format of the cell will suddenly change based on the the perceived element. For example, open up a text document and create a table. Enter a number in a cell, and before exiting the cell, save the document. The number will right-justify, because that is the auto-format it is recognized as. However, it shouldn't apply any auto-formatting until the user has left the cell, or otherwise "completed" it in some way.

Reassigned to MRU

No, unfortunately this won't be possible. there must always be a valid cell format available when saving the file. That means, the cell (and its format) must be updated when saving the file.

OK, but just so you know, with auto-save on, this looks REALLY unprofessional. One of the things I've always hated about M$ Office is it picking formats for you and changing things you've specifically made a certain way. Unfortunately, this bug makes OpenOffice look like it's doing that, and could be very confusing for users.

MRU->BH: This is a good point. I also think that it might be useful to suppress the AutoSave function until the cursor leaves a table cell, so that the value won't become "autoformated" when the entering process is not finished.
