Sheet with frozen column.

Please see attached sheet. Column A is frozen. If you insert a comment into cell A (when columns B,C,D are visible) the 'comments box' is visible.

Delete the comment from A, and using the scroll bar, move the sheet to the right so that only column D is visible next to the frozen A. Try inserting a comment into cell A again, and the field does not show (it is in effect hidden 'behind' the freeze (being on column B.

I don't know if it is a bug or not. Is this behaviour by design? 

I would have expected the comment field be be 'dynamic' relative to cell A, and remain 'On top', regardless of where the 'rest of the sheet cells are' underneath.

reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

I can confirm bug in LibreOffice I have never seen any version on Windows, Linux or Mac OS X where this doesn't happen.

Reproducible with LO 7.6+.
Comment 5 Elmar 2023-07-27 03:28:44 UTC
This only seems to happen if there is not another comment in Col A; and for the first time I do this.
When I delete the comment in Row 4, the icon in toolbar remains greyed, need to select another cell, then return to Cell A4 to create new comment

If I try to add a comment when I am seeing Col A,D (B, C hidden) comment is not visible, if I move scrollbar back so that cols B, C reappear, then it becomes visible.

only half of comment is visible

This used to be a problem when it was in the frozen Row, it is now, but I have a vague memory that this was fixed at some point.
