Description mvg 2005-12-16 15:51:54 UTC

when marking a row with click on the header the enhancement to left/right will
not mark the additional row. The array now marked is form first column to the
upper column of the shown columns.

In example, if the array A40000:M40100 is shown on screen, the row C is marked
with click upon "C"-header and [shift]+[right] ist pressed, the new marked array
will be C1:D40000.

Ciao Michael

do I understand you right that you would like to select the entire next row 
with Shift + up/down when you start from an entirely selected row?
Comment 2 mvg 2005-12-16 20:51:28 UTC
no, I don't wanna use shift+up/down. I've used shift+right and/or shift+left.

The use of shift+right differs by the way of selction of a complete row.

If I select the row C with
 a) with keys ctrl+up and ctrl+down
this happens when I'll press shift+right
 a) row C and D are selected

If I select the row C with
 b) complete row with click on the row head ("C" above row no. 1)
this happens when I'll press shift+right
 b) C1:Dx is selected, where x is the number of the first shown column
Comment 3 lars 2005-12-16 21:40:28 UTC
in a) do you mean ctrl+Shift+up ?

apart from that, the behaviour in each situation is as expected for me. what 
do you want to see differently? (and you mixed rows and columns: A,B etc. are 
columns, whereas 1,2,... are rows)
Comment 4 mvg 2005-12-17 00:01:11 UTC

And yes I mean crtl+shift+down :-(.

Okay, I'll try to make a better example:
1st ex.
 a. move focus to C1
 b. press ctrl+shift+down => whole column is selected
 c. press shift+right => columns C and D are selected = okay

2nd ex.
 a. move mouse to C1
 b. press left mouse button - move mouse to C10 - release mouse button
 c. press shift+right = array (C1:D10) is selected = okay

3rd ex.
 a. move focus to C1
 b. click on "C" above C1 => whole column is selected and focus is in C1
 c. press shift+right => array (C1:D1) ist selected = unexpected

 Here I expected array (C1:D65536 = C:D). 

4th ex.
 a. scroll down until "row" 20 is on top
 b. set focus on C30
 c. press "C" like in 3b => whole column is selected and focus moved to C20
 c. press shift+right => array (C1:D20) ist selected

 Here it's unexpected that the focus moved and the selection is pending on it.

Comment 5 lars 2005-12-17 11:45:53 UTC
Ok, 3 is working differently than equivalent cases (=> defect): confirmed on 
Windows XP Pro SP2 with OOo 2.0.1 RC5: normally Shift+arrow keys 
increase/decrease the selection at the position of the focus. When entire 
rows/columns are selected via mouse click on row/column header, Shift+arrow 
keys do not increase/decrease the selected cells at the cell focus but only 
increase/decrease a selection from the top of the sheet (row 1) at the 
position where the cell focus is. 4 contains a nother defect I file seperately.
Comment 6 mvg 2005-12-17 14:24:02 UTC
imho have 3rd and 4th example the same reason:
 The focus moves when selecting a row/column via the header.

In ex. 3 it can't move, because it's still there.
