jayant_madavi: pls specify OS and Platforms you tested! I checked with 2.0 (1.9.m125) German version WIN XP: [680m125(Build8947)] and (1.9.m118) English version WIN XP: [680m118(Build8936)] an can confirm: there is no "Menu - Edit - Edit Points" available for CALC. Also there is no toolbar "Edit Points" available. It is possible to create that toolbar by "customize", but in the customize menu I can not find all functions I have in DRAW. To find out all this it is not necessary to create many drawings, only draw a straight line in DRAW and also CALC and compare edit possibilities available. I belive that is a bug an not "wanted limitation", because in WRITER all "edit points" functions are available (but in WRITER also "Edit - Edit Points" is missing, but the toolbar is available.

Issue confirmed on Openoffice.org 2.2 on Windows XP. Edit points in Calc is not working.

Sending a "ping" concerning this issue as this bug is already three years old. I can confirm this issue in 3.0 release candidate 1. I consider this issue as "defect" as the button "edit points" is there, but just not working.
Comment 6 gleppert 2009-03-23 23:53:09 UTC
As this feature was already existing in Calc in the pre-2.0 days, I actually consider this a bug and not an enhancement. How difficult is it to solve this issue? Is it again one of the issues that needs a lot of work being done in the drawing layer or is it just a little bug that came in with the 2.0 release?
Comment 7 gleppert 2009-05-25 21:42:35 UTC
As there was no reply at all to my last comment and apparently no one had a look at this bug, I feel free to send a little reminder. Here a short summary: - Please consider this as a Defect and not an Enhancement. This functionality was there in pre-2.0 days and the icon is still there, but just does not work as expected. - As this is working in all other applications, but not Calc, there seems to be an easy solution. Isn't this part of the ongoing refactoring of the drawing layer?

Unfortunately, since April 2007 no developer ever replied to this DEFECT. Please change this issue from 'enhancement' to 'defect'. Moreover, I would be glad receiving a reply to my question whether there is a really simple solution to this issue or whether it implies a major refactoring? Thanks.
Comment 9 gleppert 2010-03-09 08:21:58 UTC
I am still assuming that a fix for this issue is very quick and simple. Is there a chance that a developer replies to above questions? I am feeling silly asking for a reply for over three years...Never mind...
