Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-11-24 07:36:39 UTC
Created attachment 70503 [details]
Sample Document

I found this problem doing some research for "Bug 51524 - [Fileopen] [XLS] cell-width of invisible cells are not remembered "

Attached sample document has been created by opening Attachment 63569 [details] of a.m. Bug, and saving after having expanded / collapsed columns A...C 1 time. It's an Excel8 document.

Steps how to reporoduce with "LibreOffice Portable 3.3.0  - WIN7  Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO330m19 (Build:6) tag libreoffice-]":
0. download sample document
1. Open document from LibO Start center
   > You see a small '+' button above column heading D
2. Expand / collapse Columns A...C by clikcing the small + / - button above
   column heading 
3. Click Cell N+, type a blank and <Return>
4. Save as "document2010LibO333.xls" (MSO97)
5. close document 
6. Reopen
   Expected: again the little '+' as in step 1
   Bug: You see a '-'

Clicking the '-' will do nothing except changing it to '+', from then on it will work normal. But proceeding as per step 2 and following again will again change the '+' visible when you save the file to a '-' when you reopen that document

EXCEL 2010 does not show the wrong '-' when I open "document2010LibO333.xls", seems to be more tolerant, more clever or whatever

Same problem sith OOo 3.1.1, so Problem is inherited from OOo

Still [Reproducible] with parallel installation of Master "LOdev   -  ENGLISH UI / German Locale  [Build ID: dec8fe)]"  {tinderbox: @6, pull time 2012-11-13 06:07:28} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) with separate /4 User Profile for Master Branch

@Spreadsheet Team:
I hope you agree with my decision to forward this one to you although still some aspects of the problem are unclear, I doubt that "normal user skills" can bring up more useful info.
Please set Status to ASSIGNED and add yourself to "Assigned To" if you accept this Bug or forward the Bug if it's not your turf (and remove others in team from CC).

Sorry, in step 3 I wanted to type "N6", not "N+"
Comment 2 A (Andy) 2012-11-24 08:27:17 UTC
reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit) and checked with Excel 2007

but the step 3 is actually not necessary to reproduce; if you skip step 3 you will get the same odd behaviour of LO
