Create a document with two columns (or create a section with two columns). Create a table within that document, with two rows and two columns. In the second row of the table, create a manual break > column break. Nothing happens. Expected behavior should be that the second table row moves into the second column.

Writer's tables are not designed to have a manual break applied to a special row. But: The whole table should move to the next column / page when a manual break is applied. This works fine on Windows and Unix (tested with OO 2.2.1 and 2.3). The fact that "nothing happens" in this case seems to be a Mac-only problem.

I don't understand the expected behavior described by mru. What is a user supposed to do who desires to have a table break across a column at a particular row? Use multiple tables? It's easy to imagine a scenario that would require such a break.

this does not seem to be mac specific at all, more a general writer issue

If someone can confirm this it should go to fme.
Comment 7 michael.ruess 2008-11-05 16:45:05 UTC
A table should break when a page or column break is applied in certain row. This is what the user expects in this moment. Currently this is not implemented in Writer's tables so this should be handled as new "Feature".

How is the absence of an expected behavior not a bug, but a missing feature? It does not behave as expected or in a reasonable way, so it's a bug.
