Description cjw296 2004-11-24 21:11:00 UTC
I'm trying to kick the MS Word habit and something that would be reaally useful
is Word's copy-and-insert functionality for table cells, columns and rows.

basically, copy a selection as normal and then right click in a cell and have an
option worded something "insert copied cells". This inserts the cells moving
other cells down or right as necessary.

This issue also gained quite a few "unofficial votes" under

13645  	moving rows and columns in a table (don't overwrite but move target cells)

I agree that it should be possible to copy-paste or move rows within a table,
preserving the format of those rows. It happens so often that one finds out he
wants row number 9 with a very specific format (number of cells, type and size
of font etc.) to be somewhere else in the table, e.g. in front of row number 3. 

According to how Write currently works, this would mean I have to create a new
row from scratch in the exact same format in front of row 3 and then paste the
contents of row 9. That sure is not user friendly. Ideally, it should not need
more than a cut and paste command.

This issue is about inserting copied cells, not moving cells.

I think 13645 is a similar, but distinct issue.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
