Description mhatheoo 2008-01-22 00:56:16 UTC
well, I am not that much fond of the changed behavior of the sort of "nested"
tables in writer-pages. that needs a re-design.

when I tried to find a way to import data from calc to writer tables, I found,
that it is impossible to import data "en bloc" from calc-cells to to writer
But thats what I need - and as far as I remember - had worked in the past.

As so far it is malformed behavior by new design, I leave this issue as defect,
someone else might set this to a more propriate issue type.

Please give a step by step description of what you do, get and expect.
A sample document would be fine too.
Comment 2 mhatheoo 2008-01-24 20:20:03 UTC
okay - a short description for the behavior that is expected:

1 have a small table in calc
I copied the content -  values only - to a new area with calc
1 have a writer-table
I want copy the content from calc to writer
Note: this is useful, as you can not pre-define a table-layout to the nested
tables within the frames

1. Copying content one by one cell: works
2. copying a group of cells: impossible 

When you have tested this, you will find, that you only will get the nested
table into a writer-table-cell - taht looks really strange.

If you try to do the same with tables within writer-html, everything works fine.
