From Google translate:
"When I protect a sheet, I allow rows and columns to be deleted and inserted, but when I save and reopen the document, neither deletion nor insertion is allowed. If you check all the permissions again and protect it, it is normal at that time, but often it is not permitted once you open it and reopen it.
Documents are shared on NAS. This is a coexistence of Windows 10 and macOS.
LibreOffice is convenient and very easy to use. I would like immediate improvement or countermeasures.
Thank you for your cooperation."
This report was brought to my attention by a triager in training, Paul.
After bisecting to find out when this feature appeared, I discovered the meaning of this feature:
"Note that when row and column insertions are enabled, you can insert rows or columns even when the range to insert the new rows or columns into contains protected cells which will get shifted after the insertion. Row and column deletions, on the other hand, are only allowed on unprotected cells."
So you need to have cells that *are not protected* for anything to work. Even if I save and reload, the behaviour is like described in the release notes. If I try to delete a row while in an unprotected cell, it will not allow it, because it would delete protected cells.
motoki: does the explanation help? If not, maybe you could attach an example document for testing.
By the way, I think this article should be updated: https://help.libreoffice.org/latest/en-US/text/scalc/guide/cell_protect.html
I should open a report for it.
