Description sasha.libreoffice 2011-02-17 07:23:27 UTC
When working with tables in writer often I need select some not adjacent cells. But can not. For example, in table:
X O O
O X O
O O X
I need select all three cells with "X".

I propose add ability selecting not adjacent cells in table in Writer
Comment 1 Muriel de Souza Godoi 2011-10-09 12:39:33 UTC
The same here.
Functionality still not available on 3.4.2.

Should be nice select non adjacent cells using ctrl key.

Comment 3 sasha.libreoffice 2012-01-02 02:27:35 UTC
remains in LibO 3.5.0 beta 1
Comment 4 michinine 2012-02-20 11:51:38 UTC
Usually, this comes up when someone wants to alternate the background on (invisible on print) tables like this:

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
...........................
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
...........................
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX


Without the ability to select non adjacent cells/rows/columns
this becomes tedious.
