Description andréb 2013-06-16 21:14:56 UTC
There is an anomoly in the data sub-menu of calc.
(note that this is translated from french : some terms may be approximate)

In the top section we see :
+ define a range ...
+ select a range ...
The next section starts with
+ sort ...
with several entries, followed by a third section, also with several entries
and ... way down ... at the bottom ... is a fourth section with :
+ update the range

(This always appears in the sub-menu)

*correction proposed*
It would make much more sense to put "update the range" in the top group (as the third entry), with the other range entries.
Not only would that be more coherent ... updating the current range is probably the most used element of this submenu (at least for me),
 and it would be much quicker to access if it were near the top.

This annoyance exists long before the version cited -- probably since the beginning.

This should be very easy to fix by anyone accessing the source code.
