Description gokul 2013-02-12 06:16:29 UTC
Created attachment 74667 [details]
ON inserting new row and column

When We have an table with n rows and n columns and have modified style like 
Borders, or alignment or writing modes etc. And If we want to add new row or column it should be same as the previous cells in table. Instead the cells are inserted with default values.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an presentation slide in impress.
2. Create an table with n rows and n columns. 
3  Add some properties  like change the border color/size, or writing mode.
4. insert An row wither with the insert row or use tab at last cell, Or insert an column. 

The column is inserted with default style and not same as the already present table.

in writer the new rows/columns inherits the style of parent cells.

Verified in version 4.0.0
Comment 2 Joel Madero 2013-03-19 22:22:16 UTC
Changing blocker to 3.6 MAB as it exists in 3.6 and it should be a blocker for the oldest version that it exist and that the MAB still is open.
Comment 3 tommy27 2013-08-11 07:19:32 UTC
confirmed in LibO 4.0.4

moving from mab3.6 to mab4.0 list since 3.6.x is EOL.

(This is an automated message.)

Setting priority to highest as this is a 4.0 MAB. This is part of an effort to make the importance of MAB reflected in priority too.
Comment 5 Stéphane Guillou (stragu) 2014-02-13 23:13:08 UTC
Is this still an issue with 4.1 or 4.2? We are trying to clean up mab4.0 as it reached EOL a while ago. Testing this would be very much appreciated.
Comment 6 tommy27 2014-02-14 06:45:19 UTC
still reproducible in LibO under Win7 64bit
moving to mab4.1

The fix is now merged.  I'll mark this resolved.
Comment 13 Mike §chinagl 2014-12-20 22:19:42 UTC
This bug fix comes with LibreOffice 4.4 (release notes https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/4.4) 

When we have a table in impress, have modified a cell style and then add a new row or column it now inherits the style of the current row/column for the new one instead of using default values.
