Description Stefan Weigel 2008-08-22 11:34:56 UTC
When starting DataPilot, Calc selects the current range automatically as the
data source. Nice feature. However, it would be a big improvement, additionally,
to be able to modify the selected range during display of the first dialog.

Please have a look at the screenshots attached: One shows what we have. The
other one shows the proposal.

Note: With issue 23658, the DataPilot layout dialog (second dialog) will allow
changing the range.

Hallo Niklas,

thanks, I am aware of issue 23658 and just forgot to mention that. (What a pity,
it didn´t make it into 3.0)

None the less, I think having the range editable in the first dialog is worth
considering, because this is the main place, where users decide about the data
source for their analysis. After all, the dialog is titled: "Select source". So
let us select them here, too!
