Description mrelwood 2017-10-23 00:10:36 UTC
Copying a row looks like it doesn't copy the conditional formattings, but if:
- select menu item File > Reload, or
- the spreadsheet is saved and reopened, or
- if visiting any conditional formatting rule for editing,
the conditional formattings are then shown correctly.

For visiting any cconditional formatting rule, it is enough to:
- Menu: Format > Conditional Formatting > Manage, double-click a condition, "OK", "OK".

Copying two or more rows, or a column doesn't have this issue.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a conditional formatting.
2. Enter data that shows conditional formatting.
3. Copy (Cmd C + Cmd V, or Alt Drag) the single row where you entered data.

Actual Results:  
The copied row appears as if no conditional formattings were in place.

Expected Results:
The conditional formattings should show up right away, without reopening the spreadsheet or editing conditional formattings.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes. Happens on a new install.

Additional Info:
This issue has been there for a long time, so I don't remember the earliest version I saw this bug in. It is still relevant in and (17.Sept.2017).
