Description sasha.libreoffice 2012-04-19 01:13:15 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
0. Start Calc
1. Type one character in any cell
2. Press Crtl-Z (while cursor still in cell after typed character)
Expected: character disappears
Actually: nothing happens

Reproduced in 3.4.2 and 3.5.2 on Windows and in 3.5.2 on Fedora 64 bit, 
not reproducible in 3.3.4 on Fedora, therefore regression after 3.3.4

PS: Undoing possible until first space or punctuation. After moving to another cell, undo also works.

@ Kohei
What do You think about this bug?
Comment 2 Kohei Yoshida 2012-04-19 11:21:05 UTC
I guess it's a bug, but one of minor importance.

To be honest, I thought this was an intended behavior, so it's probably one of those things we don't know what the right behavior is.

Thanks for information. Changing importance to minor.

Confirmed with:
LOdev 3.5.3rc1+ 
Build ID: 51648779-22e3d74-d554af7
Windows 7 Professional SP1 32/64 bit

Users migrating from Excel could be very surprised, that you can't undo typed chars (text or letters) without moving to next cell or hitting Enter. The only way to delete this is backspacing.
Additionally you can undo after first space or punctuation, but initially typed letters/numbers are still there. So, typing:

ABC - can't undo
ABC - can undo just " " (space)
ABC. 123 - can undo ". 123" only

Therefore undo function is broken. 
Also - while I can undo by CTRL+Z, I can't do it using undo button, because it is inactive. Should this be in a separate bug?

Meanwhile no.
