Description mhatheoo 2003-02-12 01:32:05 UTC
the bug:
merge some cells, 
best/example: 4 rows vertikal merge to one - and this five colums in a row
together : 

Enter some content (5 cells in a row) somewhere and copy it to the merged area:
it is nearly impossible: the data from the source-area contains
format-descriptions that want to override formats in the destination/merged
area. This will not work, but paste special will work a little.

make a new  merged-area like the above.
select data from the old and try to paste it to the new merged area: will not
work ( no way) . error: merged to merged will not work.
Note: merged cells should be treated like one cell, but OO uses them as an area
(with formats for multiple cells) which obviously can not work.

Comment 1 mhatheoo 2003-02-22 22:38:46 UTC
am I wrong with this issue? I like to know
Comment 2 mhatheoo 2003-03-04 16:26:50 UTC
well, I still treat this issue as a sever one.
someone mind to take care ?

Comment 3 peter.junge 2003-07-04 10:46:19 UTC
I can confirm this.
@Niklas: I remember we had other issues like this that we closed as
invalid. But I don't remember the reason why we behave in this way.

Comment 4 peter.junge 2003-07-04 11:42:21 UTC
See also #105454# or idea 4313 in StarOffice internals. Feature should
be reviewed and respecified if considered nessesary.
Comment 5 mhatheoo 2003-07-18 16:39:03 UTC
yes, this is neccessary 
well, obviously, having a cell which can not get content from "paste"
is a strange leftout.

Comment 7 mhatheoo 2003-11-09 20:07:28 UTC
status for paste to merged cells within OO.o 1.1 final

copy from normal cells:
the first of the merged cells/area will get the content
the merged area is destroyed - meaning now cells only

copying content of merged cells to merged cells is impossible

so I guess, final solution is under way, yes?
