Created attachment 82447 [details] Sample Document Steps how to reproduce Reproducible with "AOO 4.0.1 – German UI / German locale [Rev. 1524958 2013-09-20 11:40:29]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", “historic” 4.0 User Profile used for all predecessor versions: Follow steps in Sample document (to save time you can simply do step 13a in sample document in Table of step 12 10. Open attached Sample document 11. Create Table 7x7 and fill A1:B7 so that you can see results of edits easily 12. Merge Cells B3:D3 and F3:F5 13a. 'Click C5-> Click Delete Column Icon' (In Table Toolbar) Expected: Only Cells of Column C will be deleted Actual: All range B:D will be deleted :-) 13b. For Comparison in Cell of step 12 'Click C5-> Click Delete Row Icon' Expected: Only Cells of Row 5 will be deleted Actual: as expected Additional information_ (a) We have Inconsistency between "Delete Row", what has intuitive results, and "Delete Column", what has unexpected results (b) Do some more tests with other cells in same row or same column as merged cells. You will see that the behavior in Writer differs from the behavior in Calc. There might be differences what can and should not be eliminated (also to keep similarity with other text processing programs?), but at least unnecessary differences should be eliminated (c) Already reproducible (concerning column cell deletion) * sever installation of "OOo 3.3.0 English UI / German locale [OOO330m20 (Build 9567)]" on WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) DE * server installation of "Ooo 3.1.1 German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)DE [OOO310m19 (Build 9420)]" (d) That still worked fine (concerning column cell deletion) with * server installation of "OOo 2.0.2 [680m5 (Build 9011)]" German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) * OOo 1.1.5 (Only clumn C cells deleted (e) I will submit separate Bugs for other inconsistencies shown in sample document, soon (f) Already reproducible with Pre-3.4.0 (OOo 3.1.1), but because of crippled Version selector (Bug 123063) no useful info can be contributed (g) Still Reproducible with server installation of "AOO 4.1.0-Dev – English UI / German locale - [AOO410m1(Build:9750) - Rev. 1559824 - 2014-01-22]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", own separate user profile.
Comment 1 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2014-01-31 08:16:48 UTC
I am confirming the observed behavior - it already occurs in OOo 2.2.0
Comment 2 Sam Jennings 2014-02-01 14:32:30 UTC
I have observed a permutation which is missing from the report: If you make a row of merged cells which spans the entire width of the table, and delete the rightmost column beneath that row, the entire table is deleted. The sample file in this report exhibits the described behavior. https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=124109 Also noteworthy, but not yet reproducible, I have observed openoffice crashes (with data loss) while doing those steps. I agree with recommendations that these bug reports be merged.
