Description egandalf 2007-04-24 09:06:35 UTC
OOo v2.0 writer has problems with selecting correct cell (in tables) border...
everytime i click a cell border to resize it, it selects the border bar to its
immediate right.

it screws up tables with lots of columns close together (click the left side of
a column, but the programs picks the right side of a column and squeezes it).
why is this even still in the program? why was this not a problem in OOo 1.x but
has been in 2.x since it first came out. i have had this problem on linux and
windows both.

here is the issue as it appears (flash video capture) (20 MB)

this affects OOo v2.0+ (this was never an issue in OOo v1.x)

Hi Egandalf,
I can't reproduce your problem (2.2. on XP).
Even with zoom on 50%, I can grab the column border I want.
Also the 'delimiters' on the ruler aren't a problem for me.
So maybe something else in your situation?
