* LibreOffice (Build ID: 3e2b862)
* LibreOffice (Build ID: f010139)
both with German langpack installed, on MacOS X 10.6.8 German.

-- Fixed Summary ("not" was missing, wasn't it?!)
-- Bug already reproducible with beta 2, therefore changed Version to "".
-- Bug also reproducible on Windows (comment #2) and MacOS X, therefore changed Platform to "All"

Hello Kohei,
hello Markus,

can you please take a look at this Calc issue? It is a clear regression in LibreOffice 3.6 against 3.5, it makes navigating through the comments impossible, and therefore will affect many experienced Calc users. And maybe it is easy to fix. It would be very nice to get this fixed before 3.6 goes final.

Thank you very much in advance!

That's one for me. It is a one line change that I forgot to add back.

Hi Markus,

Thank you for the fix. Did you plan to backport it to 3.6, if possible?

navigator in Calc for master

Hi Markus,
It seems there is a weird side effect with your patch: in the navigator there is no label anymore for graphics, comments, etc.
Bug in Calc and master only. Version (Build ID: 0234b73)
