Description norbert2 2007-02-11 20:41:39 UTC


- open a blank writer document
- insert a table with at least 2 cells
- select ONE cell, therefor: hold down left mouse button (lmb) over the first
cell, move the mouse over the second cell, move the mouse back over the first
cell and release the lmb
- in the toolbar that pops up, the merge cell button is enabled although only
one cell is selected (have a look at the attached screenshot)
- press the merge button: nothing has merged, since one cell cannot be merged.

-> The merge button should be disabled if only one cell is selected (like in Calc)

Confirming with 2.1 and 2.2m5 on WinXP - selecting cell as described 
enables "Merge Cells" button on Table toolbar.
Selecting cell via Table, Select, Cells does not enable "Merge Cells" button 
on toolbar.
Comment 3 norbert2 2007-02-11 21:25:59 UTC
When selecting a cell by...

- setting the cursor in a cell
- hold down SHIFT
- press a cursor key to expand the selection to the next cell
- press cursor key of opposite direction
- release SHIFT

... the button is enabled, too, like when selecting using the mouse.

As described, active "merge cells" button does not make sense when only one cell
is selected.
