Steps to reproduce:
1. cell A1=1
2. select cell A2
3. click Ctrl-D and nothing happen

Might be this would be a useful feature, but IMHO not a Bug

I see the requested function rudimentary with parallel  installation of  Master "LOdev 3.6.0alpha0+  – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) ENGLISH UI [Build ID: 4495824-6299bf6-ec8645]" (tinderbox: Win-x86@6-fast pull time 2012-04-08 00:03:52): 
a)If the cell cursor is below a cell with contents, 
b) <control+d> will fill selected cell with contents from cell above. 
c) But not, if empty cells are between.

'c' fills the selcted cell with "Empty" contents from cell above, you see that with 'Undo' after 'c'.

This 'Fill with neighbor cell contents' alos works from Edit menu and there for all ifll directions.

Please explain 
- why you believe that it's useful (Competitor's behavior, ...)
- why you also want that for fill down, not for other fill directions

I support this as an enhancement, but I think it's already done. This worked for me after rebuilding LO tonight (git 11 apr 2012)

Reasons for keeping this enhancement:
-People are used to it from Exsell

steps to reproduce working behaviour:

1 A1=1
2 select A2
3 Press Ctrl+D. Result: A2=A1. 

Works with formulas, too.
Just like you did "arrow up, Ctrl+C, arrow down, ctrl+v"

It also works if you select a range like A1:E16 and press Ctrl+D.
Then all the topmost cells in the selection are copied down into the rest of the selected cells.

Ctrl+R doesn't work (copy right). But that's another story, and I haven't heard of anyone using it in Exsell even (but it exists there).

fixed in MASTER somewhere before 11 april 2012.
