Description ooo 2008-05-09 13:41:45 UTC
This is a follow-up issue on issue 33851. As discussed for cws 'filteredrows' there was no time to implement a proper behavior for fill operations on filtered rows, that should not be touch on such operations.

Greetings I can't believe this issue was not fixed in 3.0. I have just downloaded 3.0 after my issue was merged into 33851, and I find that the drag-fill issue still remains. I use auto-filter in almost every spreadsheet I have created and without this drag-drop situation being fixed I must revert back to MS excel. In my opinion, this is the most critical flaw that Open Office Calc has and until it is fixed I can neither use it or recommend it.
Comment 7 jclutterbuck 2008-06-20 10:07:14 UTC
Greetings all, Further to akjacques comments I note it is SIX AND A HALF YEARS!! since I posted the original Issue 2977 and this still drags on. Because of this I had to contribute to Bill Gates' billions 4 years ago and buy MS Office for my student children, I haven't used OO since and do not intend to or recommend it until this is finally fixed.

Comment 8 kheekien 2008-06-21 04:54:37 UTC
Likewise, if not for this feature, I would have used Calc instead of M$ Office. I have been voting and waiting for this feature to be fixed since OO 1.x and can't believe its not fixed for OO 3.0. Filtering is one of the most important and powerful features that a spreadsheet has and this issue literally makes this feature in Calc not useable.
Comment 9 cobologna 2008-07-09 14:28:54 UTC
Hi everybody, Calc is a great tool, but this defect is a severe problem. I am going to deploy openoffice on hundreds of clients, several of which are used by administrative employees. They use filters all the time and this issue will significantly affect them. cb

Eike, how this issue is going to proceed? Is it waiting for specification or timeslot in your schedule? Thanks. WBR, KP.

Comment 14 jclutterbuck 2009-07-15 09:41:19 UTC
Once again I missed the anniversary back in January of issue 2997 when I first reported this back in January 2002 - YES 7.5 years ago. I am now using OO on my new Mac and having just upgraded to 3.1.0 I thought I would check it out again and made a screen video of the results: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7ArppPlckA Why can't anyone at OO understand this is a serious DEFECT and always has been?
Comment 15 jclutterbuck 2009-07-17 08:40:46 UTC
Putting it on YouTube seems to have finally interested the media: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/07/16/openoffice_autofilter_bug_feature/
Comment 16 ooo 2009-07-17 09:36:59 UTC
@jclutterbuck: For the records: it was issue 2977 and not 2997. Thank you for stirring a "horde of angry chimps". And thanks Ed Hawley for denying reality, "No one seems to accept that it's a major problem. Developers say it works as specified," that's just a lie, why would we have created this issue then?
Comment 17 jclutterbuck 2009-07-17 10:11:37 UTC
Thanks ER for pointing out my mistake in the issue number. I also refer you to the following from issue 2977 ---- Additional comments from jclutterbuck Fri Oct 31 16:22:28 +0000 2003 ---- As can be seen (but not very well) under Issue Activity I originally reported this as a DEFECT but it was rejected as a WONTFIX as the developer said it worked as intended! I reopened it and it was changed back to a P3 ENHANCEMENT. I have changed it back (twice I think) to a DEFECT and each time it was set to an ENHANCEMENT. ---------------- And 7.5 years later it's still only a P3 enhancement - is this really caring about it?
Comment 18 ooo 2009-07-17 11:32:50 UTC
Whatever was said back 6 years ago, the worn-out "works as intended" simply doesn't hold anymore at least since we opened issue 33851. For completeness: after issue 2977, that and other issues addressed only some details, issue 33851 was created to summarize different aspects. Due to the large amount of controversial discussion in that issue that nobody could follow anymore we created http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Calc/Drafts/Issue_33851 to come to some conclusion. A summary of the fixes implemented is available at https://tools.services.openoffice.org/EIS2/changesmails.EditFeature?Id=4208 As you can see, the only aspect that couldn't be fixed in time is the fill behavior because it works differently from copy&paste and others. Nobody says it's not important, just that someone actually has to do it. Resources are limited, as usual. So if anyone wanted to throw a developer on this who could contribute he would be more than welcomed. And now please let's stop discussion here in the issue or we'll end up with just another lengthy unreadable comment list. Thank you.

Eike, please consider this issue for 3.3. Thanks a lot for your attention.
Comment 21 bodrisch 2010-02-19 12:31:18 UTC
Please, solve this problem ASAP, for 3.3.
Comment 22 flint1975 2010-06-08 20:02:55 UTC
This is very old problem! And very important!
Comment 23 stefanov_sm 2010-07-20 15:43:10 UTC
For the time being before the issue is fixed simply disallow autofill/propagate/whatever operations when filter is on. Clean and honest. Put a large notice on the border of a minefield instead of waiting to see who walks in & what happens to him.
Comment 24 hlerdo 2010-09-11 16:31:01 UTC
Hi, Although I have been using Calc since SO 2.x times I didn't know about this problem until 30 mins ago. I never worked extensively with autofilter before until now. Result: It destroyed about 2 days worth of work and leaves a serious bad taste in the mouth. And to see that it has been around since 2002 REALLY aggrevates!! Am I one of those angry chimps now that I read about here (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/07/16/openoffice_autofilter_bug_feature/)? I like OO, I like the fact that it free even more! But in order to seriously take off some marketshare from Excel things like this simply mustn't happen! Please remedy this defect without looking at votes! Most users don't go as far as this issues tracker! Thanks!
Comment 25 hlerdo 2010-09-11 17:34:49 UTC
Forgot to mention: OO Version 3.2.1
Comment 26 gigahz 2010-10-05 22:06:06 UTC
I see copy to filtered list works. Now, dragging should too. I won't comment more cause I see from history this is a very old bug. If only I could do something to help out.
Comment 27 niklas.nebel 2011-03-09 18:37:15 UTC
Fixed in CWS calc66, based on a patch from the IBM Symphony team. Filtered rows are skipped, and if there are filtered rows, the default is copying instead of incrementing.
Comment 28 ooo 2011-03-11 13:03:42 UTC
Code change reviewed.
Comment 29 niklas.nebel 2011-03-15 14:41:34 UTC
Reassigning to QA for verification.
Comment 30 kla 2011-03-21 14:14:19 UTC
Seen ok in cws calc66 -> verified

oh oh oh this sounds so sweet! ok, it's been 8 years but if the bug's down than it's really something. You see, it was very destructive to my spreadsheets. spread the word, akjacques, jclutterbuck, kheekien and the rest! I know this is an unneccesary comment that does nothing to the process :) But why only complain? :) :)
