The competing office suite has a handy shortcut for copying the contents of the cell above: Ctrl-D. Please add this shortcut to LibreOffice. Thanks!
This would be a useful feature that I'd like to see as well.
This feature is found in commercial spreadsheet software, it's useful and could help the migration from other applications to calc
Ok. I'll take it for 3.6.
Done. It's on the master branch.
Kohei Yoshida commited a patch related to this issue to "master":
fdo#46070: Allow copying of adjacent cells via Fill Down/Up/Left/Right.
Sorry guys for the noise, just had to fix the error in the bugzilla script.
Thank you Kohei!
