Description korzonas 2010-04-04 02:30:10 UTC
In Excel, the TAB key always moves you to the next cell.  In Calc, if part of
the string you've typed matches another string in that column, the TAB key
sequences through the matching strings.  I find this irritating and would prefer
to disable this feature.  I'd like TAB to always move me to the next cell, but
this should be selectable in Tools>Options.

I cannot reproduce the described behavior. Please add a document and describe
exactly what to type and which key to use in what situation.

I believe this is a duplicate of Issue 18748.
Comment 3 Regina Henschel 2010-04-04 22:12:49 UTC
Yes, it is the same problem as issue 18748. I could not reproduce it, because I
always set autoinput off.
