I have an RFE concerning the handling of table cell styles in writer.

Would'nt it be nice to 
have the "Cell-Styles" available in (writer's) Stylist, too? (Like Calc)
Currently, the Cell-
Styles seem to be created, named and assigned on the fly, but one is unable to manually group 
several cells with the same style. Therefore, one has to apply style changes manually to every 
correspondend cell. That's a bit laborious, I think...

The Cell-Styles-Dialogue should 
include options like Background, Vertical-Text-Alignment, Cell-Spacing, Borders, 

Because the cell styles are already in use (in the xml-output), this enhancement 
should IMHO primarily apply to the gui...

I find some features in the stylist for tables as "Table Contents" and
"Table Heading". Until now I have not used the Stylist very often, so
that I do not know whether there kan be included more special styles
by the User.

Also, as far as I know, table funcition for WRITER will be redesigned
in OOo 2.

How can we handle this wish?

Hi Rainer,
I think the situation in writer is more complex then in calc. In calc
the settings for the font, for styles of numbers and for background
and alignment all belong to the cell. Therefore in calc
cell-formatting via stylist is implemented.

In writer the settings are spread to table and to paragraph, which is
right, because you can have a lot of paragraphs and objects within one
cell. "Table Contents" and "Table Heading" are paragraph-styles and no
cell-styles as discussed here.

There allready exists a kind of 'stylist' for tables; it is the
'AutoFormat', but it deals with whole tables and you cannot update
your selfmade tablestyle.
Having cell-styles in the stylist would be nice, but the stylist
becomes more extensive because you need a new category. Anyway I have
voted for this issue, because such capability will give an easy way to
design tables. In writer a style-template via stylist would be
helpfull, because you have - in contrast to calc - not the possibility
to transfer a format with 'PasteSpecial'.

Which settings cellstyle should handle, should be discussed later, if
you deside to implement them.

kind regards
