Description jamespous 2005-06-01 16:00:10 UTC
I merged 2 cells together and tried to optimize the column width. It does not work.

An exsample:

I got a spreadsheet with 2 rows and 2 columns. The second row contains a merged
cell. If I optimized the columns of all 3 cells, ignore the size
of the cell in the second row.

not a defect but an enhancement request. Re-assigned to the requirements team

I can not believe that you categorize this issue as an enhancement. It is not a
missing program feature. From my point of view, the column optimal width on
merged cells is actually useless.
