Description richlv 2005-09-19 11:25:59 UTC
there are are lot of screen garbling artifacts in that people often 
complain about. even though they do not (usually) affect workflow a lot or cause 
serious trouble, they can be annoying and can make a bad impression, especially
if that is a new user or, for example, demonstration of capabilities :)
so i think we should try to eliminate these cases if that does not require too 
much of an effort.

see testcase.

a) select cell c10. move upper object slightly right or left (not changing its 
cell selection that was below object selection handles is not removed (handles.

b) select any cell. move second object on this selection so that selected cell 
is half covered by objects left border

select any other cell - suddenly selection below the object is visible and is 
not removed when other cells are selected

c) very similar to b, only this time outer border is preserved. select any cell, 
move object as in object-out-before.png

select the cell directly below current selection. now select any other cell. 
cell selection that was not covered by object now is visible

d) inconsistent cell selection below objects depending on previous object 
select any cell. drag the object so that it partially covers the cell (callout 
leader line and it's surrounding area counts, too).
now drag it so that filled area covers selection. selection is visible. now drag 
the object away so that no part of it covers selected cell, not even surrounding 
areas of leader line. then drag it back on the selection so that filled object 
area covers selection - selection is not visible through the object.

Confirmed on PC, WinXP, m130.  Very annoying.

Hi Niklas,

your construction site or CL or SJ ?

Maybe a double to Issue 54398 ?

Just want to add, from an end user's standpoint, that the calc artifact problem is more than an annoyance.

When entering data for critical financial reports, one may see information in cells on the display that is leftover from another sheet (i.e. tabbing from sheet to sheet). This mis-information can cause a user to attempt to "fix" a problem on a sheet that may not actually exist, or attempt to interpret data that is being displayed incorrectly.

When collecting data on several tabbed sheets, if the user is not aware of the artifact problem, the visual data carry-over situation can effect

1) mis-interpretation of data displayed to the viewer,

2) corruption of data when attempting to fix a problem that may not actually exist,

3) and significant time lost to reconstruct and/or recover data.

Minimizing then maximizing the application window causes the artifacts to disappear and correct data to be displayed. But as soon as the user tabs to another sheet, the problem returns.

Reset the assignee to the default "".
