Description Nicolas Christener 2019-01-07 13:45:44 UTC
A user should be able to resize rows/columns of a table with the finger.

Apple pages has a nice implementation:

* click on/in a table -> above/next to rows and columns a "label bar" where
  the columns are labeled A,B,C... and row are numbered 1,2,3... is shown

* clicking on a row/column highlights the cells and shows a sign with a icon
  with two bars which indicates a handle to resize the row/column

Please see attached screenshot to get an idea.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a table in a write document with the iOS app
2. Try to resize columns/rows of the table

Actual Results:
There is no (easy) way to resize columns/rows.

Expected Results:
There should be a way to resize columns/rows with a finger.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Comment 7 Nicolas Christener 2019-08-16 07:13:32 UTC
I tested this in 4.1.51 (51) and it seems to work as expected. I think we can closed this one as "fixed".

Thanks a lot to the Collabora team!
