Description johnstumbles 2004-02-25 13:49:09 UTC
Doing Window->Split to produce a vertical split (i.e. column A always visible)
causes the Sheet 1 | Sheet 2 | etc tabs to be compressed into the space to the
left of the split. (In this it follows MSOffice(2K)'s (IMHO) broken behaviour.)
Even when the split is removed the tabs remain scrunched up and have to be reset
manually (which MSO doesn't do).

Perhaps OOo could position its Sheet tabs to the right of the split line if the
split line is to the left of centre (i.e. put them where there's room to display
them as well as the scroll tools).

(I hope this hasn't already been reported - I searched on 'split' and couldn't
find anything. Also I was going to attach some screenshots but I can't find how
to do that from here -
