Description Mike Kaganski 2013-08-23 09:53:42 UTC
When cells in a table have non-default alignment applied (local formatting, not styles), and have been merged, consequent UNDO doesn't restore the alignment properly.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new empty text document
2. Add a table with several columns
3. Apply central alignment to all cells
4. Merge all cells of one row
5. Undo.

Expected result: all cells in the table have central alignment

Actual results: all cells of the previously merged row (except the first cell) now have left alignment.

Tested with LO 3.3.0 - and AOO 4.0.0 under Win7x64. Must be an inherited bug.

Thanks for reporting! I can confirm this behavior, tested using Mac OSX 10.9 with LibreOffice Version:
Build ID: 9c45345a680f7444df251f9403c7d56572380f21
TinderBox: MacOSX-x86@49-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2013-11-18_12:43:03

Marking as "Inherited from OOo".

Kind regards,

Still reproducible with Version:
Build ID: b2f347f2ac68821efc00b6f1793cda90af748118
Locale: ru_RU
under Win7x64

Can't reproduce! The cell alignment is actually restored.
Comment 5 Mike Kaganski 2017-03-17 21:15:11 UTC
I do reproduce it using Version:
Build ID: 5de40734af30a8b897c6c5b7f681759e36a25557
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 6.19; UI render: GL; 
Locale: ru-RU (ru_RU); Calc: CL

The build's commit is dated Mar 14, so newer than 5de40734af30a8b897c6c5b7f681759e36a25557 used in comment 4.

Please don't close as WORKSFORME if you cannot reproduce a problem right away; please write your findings first, asking others (and OP) to try to confirm them. It might be that you misunderstood the reproducing steps; or it could be OS-dependent; or something else.

Restoring the NEW status.

Sorry, somehow the commit id was wrong in my version's description. It was 1eb69f6b9c78b19d3944c90c17ff8d498affc316 actually.
