Description mahfiaz 2016-08-04 15:25:13 UTC
1. Open a Calc document read-only (e.g downloaded to temp from internet)
2. Select a few cells
3. Right-click for context menu

Context menu has the following items:
a) Cut
b) Copy
c) Paste
d) Paste only
e) Merge cells
or f) Selection List (if only one cell is selected)

Of all these options only "Copy" is usable. At least the last 2 ones should be hidden for read-only document (everything else is).

Cut, Paste are on the UI but are grayed-out...
This is an ENHANCEMENT request, mark as new.
Comment 2 mahfiaz 2019-03-31 05:37:04 UTC
Cut and merge cells are now ( gone in the read only view.
Now the context menu reads:
Paste Special
Selection List

Paste Special has an empty submenu.
Styles submenu has several options which do nothing, aren't greyed out and give no warning/error.

would be usefull to have an separate xml file for read only mode context menu.
