Description gls 2009-09-11 10:32:22 UTC
Please do the following:
- start OO from icon on desktop
- select Spreadsheet
- activate 'TOOL|Protect Document|Sheet' (and not 'TOOL|Protect Document|Document')
- double click on 'Sheet1' sheet name
- no pop-up for name editing
- right click on 'Sheet1' sheet name
- no entry in contextual menu for sheet renaming

This is not according to documentation (and is a real drawback), page
'Protecting Cells from Changes':
5.Apply the protection options.
To protect the cells from being changed / viewed / printed according to your
settings in the Format - Cells dialog, choose Tools - Protect Document - Sheet.
To protect the structure of the document, for example the count, names, and
order of the sheets, from being changed, choose Tools - Protect Document - Document.

In the database, I found items 27079 and 27126 that are related. But I am
absolutely sure to not have protected the Document. I have protected only the
sheet as easily visible from the 'Tools|Protect Document' submenu.

NB: moving sheet around is OK, is according to documentation.

Another error in the help "Protecting Cells from Changes":
"1. Select the cells that you want to specify the cell protection options for."
When Tools - Protect Document - Sheet...
All cells are protected regardless of selection.
