Description vogella 2007-06-22 17:45:57 UTC

I did assign the function Edit->Delete Row to Cntrl+D under Tools-> Customize,

Work fine if the row contains content but if you try to delete an empty line
nothing happes. 

I assume this is a bug, should be easily reproducable (create doc with three
lines the second empty and press 3 time Delete Row).

Best regards, Lars

I cannot reproduce. Using OOo2.2.1 on winXP I reassigned ctrl+D to delete a row
in a table. I could then (using the keyboard shortcut) delete a row in a table
regardless of whether there was text in the row or not.

It also didn't matter whether I selected the entire row or if the cursor was
simply a cell within the row.

Will close the issue until the user reopens with detailed instructions on how to

Reassigned to ES, please double-check this. Thanks!
Comment 3 vogella 2007-06-25 09:21:45 UTC

the issue has nothing todo with tables. It describes the issue of deleting a
normal text line. 

Please try again (without table). Make three lines, second empty, place the
cursor on the first and delete this line via shortcut. Try now to delete the
empty line.

This function only deletes a line, not a paragraph. To execute what you expect,
choose "Delete to End of Paragraph".

Hello, thank you but delete to end of paragraph has the same behavior (not
deleting empty lines). Best regards, Lars
Comment 7 eric.savary 2007-06-26 11:14:49 UTC
It works fine for me. Using "Delete to End of Paragraph", paragraph marks of
empty paragraphs are deleted. Please explain step by step what you do and attach
a sample document.
Comment 8 vogella 2007-06-26 12:05:34 UTC

sorry I did an error in assigning the shortcuts.   

Now it deletes, but to much


Create the following document:


Place the cursor in the empty line and press Cntrl+D -> the empty line and the
test line is deleted. 

I only want to delete the emtpy line. I would assume that is what "Delete Row"
should stand for. 

Right now is is either not deleting or to much.  

Best regards, Lars

It's the same thing when you put the cursor to the very end of a paragraph and
then execute "Delete to End of Paragraph": You would expect that nothing happens
(items between cursor and end of paragraph: 0), but instead it deletes the
*following* paragraph. When placing the cursor into an empty paragraph it's the
same thing: "Delete to End of Paragraph" does not delete the paragraph in that
the cursor currently is, but the one that follows.
