Description padmavyuha 2008-12-05 06:24:47 UTC
In the Calc menubar Data::Sort... leads to the Sort dialogue, with 2 panels,
Sort Criteria and Options.
It is very frustrating that:
a) 'Range contains column labels' is switched OFF by default
b) you have to change panels to get to it once the dialogue is up, and
c) as of v3.1 (AFAICT) there's still no access to this functionality through the
API so it's not possible to turn this feature on using macros, shortcuts etc.

In MS Excel this feature is ON by default, and is accessible on the same panel
as the Sort Criteria, making it much easier to use/choose.

I'd certainly appreciate (b) & (c) in the list above - changing (a) would
confuse users now, unless (b) happened too.

padmavyuha, please have a look at issue #22758 and at

After having fixed issue #22758, do you still think it is necessary to ease
access to the option in the dialog?
