- Select the full row 15

- Drag&Drop the selection to row 6

- Note that only the filled part of the row is moved!

Yes, drag&drop works different than copy/cut and paste. But I'm not sure, whether this is a bug. If it is considered a bug, it is surely not a "major" bug, because you can get the desired behavior easily by copy and paste.

Using only the really used area has the advantage, that you can insert it shifted to the right. So the behavior is different to version 3.4, but I do not see it as "regression".
Comment 2 OfficeUser 2012-03-03 08:28:09 UTC
It IS a major bug!

Try the same procedure while holding down Alt key while dragging.

In this way rows can be moved BETWEEN existing rows.

Now - due to this bug - this feature is broken because it destroys formatting/layout of the spreadsheet...
Comment 3 OfficeUser 2012-03-03 08:33:50 UTC
Current behaviour is not what the user expects. If he wants to drag&drop a partial row he selects only a part of the row.

(@Regina: LibO reveals big lack of Q&A with each major release...)
Comment 4 OfficeUser 2012-03-03 08:35:35 UTC
Please set target to 3.5.1.
Comment 5 OfficeUser 2012-03-03 08:36:30 UTC
I mean QA... ;-)

@Rainer: Could you confirm this bug please?

Effect is [Reproducible] with "LibreOffice German UI/Locale [Build-ID: 45a2874-aa8c38d-dff3b9c-def3dbd-62463c8] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) and
[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.5.0 RC2 

Old behavior with 3.5.0 Beta1

I understand the problem <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45868#c2>, but the current solution  is a regression for my needs. 

This is the typical result of insufficient impact assessment.
