Description rogerathome 2002-10-14 21:45:48 UTC
To increase the user friendlyness of the autofilter a select for -Blanks- and
-NonBlanks- would be very nice so the Standard filter is not needed for these

Hi Bettina, one4you
Comment 3 bettina.haberer 2003-12-03 17:32:51 UTC
Hello Niklas, this enhancement increases the usage-recognition for
users of competing spreadsheets.
Please give approval for this evaluated OO.o 2.0 flagged issue. 
If you confirm with the target OO.o 2.0, then please keep it on your
owner (or the owner of the concerning developer) for implementation.
In case you want this issue for 'OOo Later', then please reset the
target milestone. If you decline the issue finally, please set the
resolution to 'Wontfix' (but do not close). In case of 'OOo Later' or
'Wontfix' please reset it on Bettina's owner. Thank you.

This is not on the list of features that we're going to do for 2.0. We need to
focus on the enhancements from the PCD document.
Comment 6 gregmiller 2005-11-18 00:32:25 UTC
This feature is used by regular spreadsheet users quite often (we use this every
day in our company).  Many people can not understand why they have to go through
the extra steps involved in setting up a Standard filter, when Excel has these
options right on the Autofilter menu.  Considering the massive amout of work
that has been done to make OpenOffice more user friendly, it is a shame that
this issue has slipped through the cracks.

Comment 10 martinschaffner 2006-09-09 17:55:18 UTC
The Novel-modified version of 2.0.3 that comes with OpenSuse has this issue fixed. The 
patch is in the source-RPM in the file:

I attached it in the preceding comment.

Perhaps more of these patches might be useful for the OOO project?

Hi Niklas,

please have a look at this one.

Comment 12 bettina.haberer 2006-09-11 10:51:52 UTC
Set to correct owner for enhancements.
Comment 13 frank 2006-09-11 13:02:26 UTC
As it is a PATCH now, development have to decide or at least have a look at the
patch. So it's up to NN.

Comment 14 niklas.nebel 2006-09-11 13:44:55 UTC
The patch is already in issue 35578, currently waiting for feedback from User
