Description sworddragon2 2013-01-02 01:23:15 UTC
In Calc copying a field and pasting it to another field disables temporarily navigation down with Enter or to right with Tab. Clicking with the mouse on another field solves this issue until the next paste appears.
Comment 1 Owen Genat (retired) 2013-12-14 09:09:50 UTC
I am not sure what "field" in this report refers to, however there does appear to have been a general change in behaviour between v3.3 and v3.4 with respect to how the ENTER key is interpreted after performing a copy/paste action. This may be what this bug is referring to however until this can be clarified I am setting the status to NEEDINFO. 

My understanding of problem:

1. Start Calc.
2. Enter "abc" in cell A1.
3. Copy (CTRL+C) this cell.
4. Move selection to cell B1.
5. Paste (CTRL+V) - places copied value into B1, cell is highlighted.
6. ENTER unhighlights cell B1.
7. Subsequent use of ENTER/TAB is as expected i.e., move selection either down or to the right. 

Under Ubuntu 10.04 x86_64 running v3.3.0.4 OOO330m19 Build: 6 and Crunchbang 11 x86_64 running v3.3.4.1 OOO330m19 Build: 401 those steps describe the behaviour. Under Ubuntu 10.04 x86_64 running:

- v3.4.6.2 OOO340m1 Build: 602
- v3.5.7.2 Build ID: 3215f89-f603614-ab984f2-7348103-1225a5b
- v3.6.7.2 Build ID: e183d5b
- v4.0.6.2 Build ID: 2e2573268451a50806fcd60ae2d9fe01dd0ce24
- v4.1.3.2 Build ID: 70feb7d99726f064edab4605a8ab840c50ec57a

... the behaviour is different. After step 5:

6. ENTER does not remove cell highlighting (it removes moving dashes from around A1).
7. Subsequent use of ENTER/TAB does nothing - a cursor key or mouse click is required to move the selector to another cell. 

It is possible this is a bug that overrides the setting under Tools > Options > LbreOffice Calc > General > Input settings section > Press ENTER to move selection "Down".

I was refering to cell.

This is what I'm seeing too on LibreOffice 4.1.3.2.

"Press Enter to move selection" is enabled and the dropdown field is set to Down but the cell selection is still not moving on pressing enter after pasting something.

Thanks for responding and clarifying the "field" matter. I had the same setting for Press ENTER to move selection, so confirmed. Status set to NEW. Component set to Spreadsheet. Version set to 3.4.6 release per comment #1. Possible regression.

I'm still able to reproduce this issue with LibreOffice 4.4.2.2 on Linux 3.19.3 (x86_64).
