Description Ryan Lovett 2010-10-28 16:26:51 UTC
The drawing program allows you to create objects with background fill patterns like hatches and stripes. I would like add the same sort of background fills to cells within the spreadsheet program, however it is only possible to change the background color.

It is possible to draw a box with a fill pattern in the drawing app and then paste it onto the spreadsheet, but its difficult to keep that box object associated or aligned with the cell(s).

Ah, the irony.  I made the same request to OOo way back when I was still a user.  Now it's finally coming back to me, heh? ;-)
