a merged cell should not be merged again (see manual). Unfortunately Format / Merge Cells / Merge and Center Cells is not made unavailable and greyed for a merged cell. If that command option is chosen it does split the cell...

It's good that you re-test, but version 6.0.1 would have been more appropriate.

Comment 7 Heinrich Hartl 2019-02-20 11:50:31 UTC
The functionality that is done here actually is doing what is requested in https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101123 for merged cells in a writer table. Merge cell is reversed! Probably the first menu item just should be deleted. Split functionility is available in the last menu item.
