Description ivanistheone 2004-07-05 21:49:16 UTC
1.Open a new text document.
2.Insert->table->5 by 2 (the default option will do)
3.Select the top row and "merge" it into a single cell.

Now we want to add an extra column to the right of the table. 

4.Click on the rightmost cell in the bottom row.
5.Right-click and Insert->column->1 OR $many

It creates a ($many) copy (copies) of the entire table instead of adding an
extra column.

If I can help out with testing it please contact me at

MRU->BH: It works, as it once was designed to. It is a result of Writer's
"complex" table handling (when having merged/splitted cells). The Insert.Column
command refers to the superordinate column, which contains the sub-columns below it.
A new algorithm, which differenciates the cursor position and inserts
rows/columns from the current cursor position as desired.

This one is obsolete, we have a new table design since 3.x. Bug behavior with "AOO 4.1.0 Release – German UI / German locale [AOO410m18(Build:9764)  -   Rev. 1589052 2014-04-22 11:43:54]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", “historic” 4. User Profile used for all predecessor versions till is rather strange, but different from the one in OOo 1.1. I will close this one (+ check DUPs) and submit new issues for the current problems, soon.
