Description pposc 2010-02-24 00:23:37 UTC
When copying a non empty cell (e.g. A1) using the option "link" of "paste
special", the result is a link to the source cell:

When doing the same with an empty cell, we should expect the same formula as a
result. However, Calc doesn't copy anything (the result is an empty cell, of
course, but with no link at all with the source cell).

This behaviour is annoying when we like to copy/paste+link a set of cells, some
of them empty. Only the non empty cells are linked to the destination cells. If
the empty source cells are later populated, the destination cells will remain
empty (because they are not linked).
