Description 2012-09-12 17:42:37 UTC
Drag&Drop of one individual cell is difficult because clicking onto one cell the cell is not marked, only the focus is set on it. If you want to Drag&Drop one individual cell to another position, you must trick Calc by marking two or more cells, and reduce the mark to one individual cell afterwards. Then the individual cell is marked, and not only the focus on it, so you can grab the cell, and drag and drop it to another position.

It would be great, if this awkward way would be simplified, by clicking onto one individual cell, and Drag&Drop it directly.

Comment 1 A (Andy) 2012-12-27 20:10:43 UTC
reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

I agree with this comment, because this workaround with first selecting two cells is not really professional and sophisticated.
