Description tillmo 2008-03-16 20:24:54 UTC
in the table in the attached file, when merging two cells in row 2 and 3, row 7
is replaced with a thin grey line.
the row re-appears after saving and reloaing the file, hence it seems to be a
mere display problem.

Comment 2 Rainer Bielefeld 2008-03-16 20:56:54 UTC
I checked with "2.4 RC5  Multilingual French version WIN XP:
[680m11(Build9283)]" and can confirm the reported effect. 

tillmo:
Can you reproduce that effect with a new document? I would like to eliminate any
possibility that only that document is damaged.
Comment 3 tillmo 2008-03-16 22:48:31 UTC
I can reproduce the effect with a new file as follows:
1. insert a table with 6 rows and 4 columns
2. merge the cells rows 4-6, column 1
3. merge the cells rows 1-3, column 1
4. mark the two merged cells
5. with Table -> Table Properties -> Text flow, change Text direction to
"Right-to-left (vertical)"
6. merge the cells rows 1-2, column 1

The effect also appears if after step 5, you change the text direction back to
the normal setting. However, if you just undo step 5 with ctrl-z, the effect
does not appear.
Comment 4 tillmo 2008-03-16 22:50:08 UTC
sorry, step 6 should be:
6. merge the cells rows 1-2, column 2
Comment 5 michael.ruess 2008-03-17 16:04:41 UTC
This "only" happens with tables created with the "old" table model (created with
OOo older than 2.3) and which also must contain vertical text. The attached doc
was created with OO 2.2.

MRU->AMA: open attached document, merge cells B1.2.2 and B1.2.3 -> table layout
at row 7 and 8 is initially destroyed.
