Description mwidrick 2003-08-04 20:33:28 UTC
When wanting to copy a column exactly (from one column to the next, to print 3 identical 'cards' on one sheet of paper), I wasn't able to shift select multiple images (drawing objects and jpeg images). WinWord allows this behavior, which makes it easier to precisely copy one column's layout to another. Also, it would be nice to shift select text and objects, but since WinWord doesn't allow this, I don't really expect it. This task is easy in a presentation document (where even text exists as objects), but then I don't have access to other layout choices like columns. Perhaps in the future, a way to use print preview to treat objects in the manner of the presentation programs could be found.

Please clarify: Are you talking about table columns or page columns like in > Format > Columns ?
Comment 3 mwidrick 2004-02-19 20:19:20 UTC
The problem is in the page columns layout. It exists generally in the word processor component, you can't select multiple objects. I haven't downloaded new revisions since August, so I'm sorry if this was subsequantly resolved.

Selecting multiple external objects isn't possible yet. Will confirm as enhancement.

Dear developers, any progress with this issue? Thanks a lot for your attention.

I believe that whenever a user first encounters this issue, he will perceive it as a bug, since from the user's point of view there is no obvious difference between external and internal objects. Also, no such difference seems to be documented, and even if it were, nobody would expect an embedded image to be an external object. Also, competitors today do not have such problems anymore. Hence, I suggest that this issue be assigned a higher priority and a target milestone. And and believe that it would even make sense to rate it a defect instead of an enhancement.
