Description Kenneth Hanson 2020-03-31 23:18:06 UTC
Sometimes it is necessary to split a large table repeatedly, in my case usually with no heading. At present, the user must select the correct radio button every time. It would be helpful if LO remembered the previously selected option, at least as long as the program is open.

This would be a minor convenience, but should have no downsides, and hopefully be easy to code.

There may be other places in the interface where a similar treatment would be desirable.

I confirm the described behaviour with

Version: (x64)
Build ID: 41177730421f9be9ad955766a5a19667d8003b11
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 18363; UI render: default; VCL: win; 
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI-Language: en-GB
Calc: threaded

Tt should be the normal behaviour that LO remembers previous settings. So we can treat it as a bug.

I checked. It's perfect. The split checkbox is remembered.
I closed LO, open again, it is remembered (not per session).
