Which behavior do you prefer? I don't get where the error is. And is this also
true for OOo 320?
Comment 2 r4zoli 2009-11-30 09:44:01 UTC
I checked again, it is same in 320, it not connected to hsqldb19.

May be it is not defect more an enhancement.

Can be better if you can get the default value when you change data type, in
design view.
