Hi, when writing some invoices with OOo writer, I use a template with a predefined table. Unfortunately, when adding rows, OOo use some default format. In my perfect world, OOo would inherit the format and formula from the row above the inserted one. I've provided a demonstating document here: ftp://urpla.net/taxtable.odt. I know, that I'm able to preformat a template with a certain number of items, and delete unneeded lines, but that's not flexible and a bit of a hassle, especially, since OOo (1.9.104) forgets the alignment on editing the currency formatted Item prize field. Just try my document. OTOH, if the rows are not enough, one has to go though a lot of steps: - add line - enter count, desc, item prize - set item prize and prize alignment - set item prize and prize format - add count * item prize formula - correct sum formula While the first two steps are obvious, the rest isn't IMHO, and is even harder to teach to somebody less involved.. The idea is to provide one item row in the invoice template. Adding rows inherits the formula (with adjusted field references), number format, and alignment. BTW: alignment: it looks like the vertical alignment isn't predictable either.. A query on the users ML doesn't gave satisfying answers on this topic. Thus I ask the developers: is the intended behavior reasonable, or is this just a stupid user idea?
