Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-02-21 09:30:05 UTC
Steps how to reproduce with  "LibreOffice " German UI/ German Locale [Build-ID: 5b93205] {pull date 2013-01-18} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) 

1. Open New empty Spreadsheet from LibO Start Center
2. Open arbitrary simple ExistingSpreadsheet.ods on same HDD oon your PC
3. Select a simmple small column range (C3:C8) in ExistingSpreadsheet.ods
4. copy with <control+c>
5. Switch to new empty spreadsheet
6. Click cell C10
7. Menu 'Edit -> Paste Special - Paste All []checked -  Transpose []checked - 
   Link [] checked' <ok>
   > Contents appears
   Expected: Column contents will be pasted as row contents, because 
             checkbox in greyed 'Transpose' still checked
   Actual: pasted to column

That's unintuitive, if intended result is the "paste to column cells" the 'Transpose' checkbox should become unchecked when 'Link' chechbox becomes checked.

Similar problem as "Bug 60430 - UI shows "Delete comment" in context menu althoug it's impossible because of protected section"
Comment 2 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-02-21 09:34:51 UTC
Still Reproducible  with "Version (Build ID: 0a967d4cb4468785ed3d302104642353b93232f) TinderBox: Win-x86@6, Branch:master, Time: 2013-02-21_00:36:59"

Already REproducible with LibO 3.3.3 and AOOo 3.4.0, so I think this one is inherited  from OOo

Column copy is still reproducible with LibreOffice built at home under Ubuntu 14.10.

But, now, it is expected: paste special dialog has been reworked since this bug report has been filled. When cheking the [] Link check box, all others checkboxes are grayed out. So, there is no ambiguity anymore in the behavior of this function.

So closing as WorksForMe. Please, feel free to reopen if you disagree

Best regards. JBF
