Description Unknown 2002-05-23 00:21:03 UTC
The "Edit Points" function in the spreadsheet application only allows you 
to "move points" in a line or belzier curve. The user cannot "add" or "delete 
points" to the selected line because those buttons are not displayed in the 
ObjectBar as they are in the word processor and presentation applications.  
This interface is inconsistant with the capabilities in the other OpenOffice 
applications and seriously degrades the utility of the spreadsheet application.

maybe one of those mysteries of the drawing layer. ;-)
Best regards, Peter

Set to new.
Comment 3 wolframgarten 2002-06-25 09:52:06 UTC
That is no mystery or bug but intended. Set to Falko for further
Comment 4 falko.tesch 2003-01-13 16:19:53 UTC
Any for this, Niklas? If not, than please behave the way Writer, Draw
and Impress does.
Comment 5 niklas.nebel 2003-01-15 14:45:48 UTC
There is no separate shell for bezier editing in Calc. The object bar
handling in Writer and Draw is different, too: In Draw only the bezier
bar is active, in Writer the bezier and drawing bar can be toggled.
Before changing anything we need a more complete specification of what
we want. But for 1.1, it's too late for such UI changes anyway.
Comment 6 falko.tesch 2003-09-26 12:36:58 UTC
It would be nice to have the same tools offered in the UI for Bezier
curves in Calc as in Writer and Impress.
Thus we need to have the same toolbar component available in Calc.
But this is nothing for 2.0 anymore.

Comment 8 bettina.haberer 2005-08-12 16:10:38 UTC
Corrected Component.
Comment 9 richlv 2005-09-12 15:51:17 UTC
in 1.9m128 all components (writer, impress, draw, even base) except calc display 
identical toolbar named "edit points" when point editing is enabled.

is this old issue the one where this problem is taken care of ?

I ran into the same problem here. I cannot insert points in a polygon in Calc,
the way i can do that in writer. I am using version 2.1.
I think all components should behave the same way, and we should have the same
toolbar available in Calc.

Comment 11 gercokees 2007-03-02 09:23:29 UTC
There is a workaround by the way,
Just copy your polygon from calc to writer, insert or delete your point there,
and copy the polygon back....

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
