Description Unknown 2003-01-14 02:27:02 UTC
When in a table cell, if you are in the middle of entering some data and it 
looks like an auto-format element (a date, time, number, etc), and you save 
the document (either explicitly or via a timed auto-save), the format of the 
cell will suddenly change based on the the perceived element. 
For example, open up a text document and create a table.  Enter a number in a 
cell, and before exiting the cell, save the document.  The number will 
right-justify, because that is the auto-format it is recognized as.  However, 
it shouldn't apply any auto-formatting until the user has left the cell, or 
otherwise "completed" it in some way.

No, unfortunately this won't be possible. there must always be a valid
cell format available when saving the file. That means, the cell (and
its format) must be updated when saving the file.

OK, but just so you know, with auto-save on, this looks REALLY   
unprofessional.  One of the things I've always hated about M$ Office   
is it picking formats for you and changing things you've   
specifically made a certain way.  Unfortunately, this bug makes   
OpenOffice look like it's doing that, and could be very confusing  
for users.  
Comment 4 michael.ruess 2003-01-22 12:46:13 UTC
MRU->BH: This is a good point. I also think that it might be useful to
suppress the AutoSave function until the cursor leaves a table cell,
so that the value won't become "autoformated" when the entering
process is not finished.

Reaasigned to Product Management for decision.
