Description Dwayne Henderson 2012-06-01 10:50:10 UTC
Why is the default cell width in OOo 2,27cm?

What about changing it to 2,50cm, a nice round number which will make it easier to grid ones spreadsheets (, i.e. imposing order by only having cells that are 2,50cm, 5cm, 7,50cm, 10cm and so on.

Thank you!

Actually why should the default column width be hard coded this way? I would have thought we need two user configurable setting in Tools/options/calc: 1. the measurement system -- international yard or SI;  2. the column width.

I agree, it makes no sense for it to be hard-coded.  I was just searching to try and find out how to change the default column width, and found nothing but workarounds.

Are you asking for this as a document-level or system-level setting?  I hope it will be possible to change it at both levels.  (System level would probably be a matter of changing it in the default template.)
