merging of cells(merged and individual cells) in calc
When we try to merge cells in which atleast one of cell is merged throw's
error message( "Cell merge not possible if cells are already merged" ).
IMO this is not a correct behaviour. Meging of cells including merged cells shouls be possible.
trying to merge an already merged cell is anyway not possible as we
disable merge option if it is merged.
this is not the beviour in writer.
Is their any reason for such behaviour in calc.
Steps to Reproduce
1) Merge few cells in calc.
2) select the merged cell and other cells and perform merge operation.
Throw's error message
Merge operation should be performed
Still [Reproducible] with parallel Dev-installation of "Version 188.8.131.52.alpha0+ (Build ID: 0b4315077a6827798e1d2bdae73298365ba9a01) TinderBox: Win-x86@6, Branch:master, Pull Time: 2013-04-18_04:00:51" ENGLISH UI / German Locale on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) with LODev/4 Masters User Profile: Message "Cell merge not possible if cells already merged"
Old OOo versions simply unmerged merged cells if you tried to merge additional cells to already merged cells (we still see this in LibO when we use "Merge and Center Contents"
Reported problem already visible in LibO 3.3.3, I did not check where exactly appeared, I beleve with addition of feature 'merge without center contents'
Currently this is a known limitation (see help) and so more or less intended.
But we should overcome this limitation, Gnumeric and Softmaker FreeOffice have this ability (I only tested with empty cells).
Please add Witeboard tag “bibisectrequest” if you think that a bibisect result can ease your work.

Not sure why this was closed, because Calc still throws the same error message. Tested using 6.2beta1 & 184.108.40.206 / Ubuntu 18.04.
I get this error message when merging on 220.127.116.11.0+.
