3.In Insert table dialog box select 2 columns and 400 rows. header rows option and set it to 50.

MRU->OS: we should somehow set a maximum of "header rows" in the tble dialog to
prevent such messy (and completely senseless) scenarios. Maybe the max value
could be relative to page height (height_of_textarea x 2) or even a fixed value. 
Comment 5 Oliver Specht 2005-03-16 18:41:10 UTC
->mru: I dislike prevention of senseless values in the UI when it's still
possible to set the same senseless values via API or in the file format. 

Target changed to OOo 2.01
->fme: I'd prefer to have the bug fixed.

FME->MRU: Takes some time (~2min) but works with SRC680m86. 50 rows repeated
headlines already exceed the lower page margin. Therefore there will be only one
regular row per page, which results in table that spans over 351 pages, which of
course takes some time to layout. I consider this issue 'invalid'.
Comment 7 michael.ruess 2005-03-17 13:20:58 UTC
Won't be fixed. Setting large amount of header rows needs its time format in the
document. Working on this will be too mmuch effort for making program less
sensitive on user entries which do not make sense.
