Description Terrence Enger 2013-10-07 14:46:39 UTC
Calc no longer lets you resize a column by double-clicking on the
right edge of the column header.  This looks like a reappearance of
bug 39909 "EDITING: Double Click Doesn't Resize Columns", which was
reported on 2011-08-07 and RESOLVED WORKSFORME on 2012-10-14.  More

(1) Create a new worksheet.  Cell A1 is selected.

(2) Type "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog".  The caret is
    visually in the area of cell D1, but the cell address in the
    formula toolbar still shows A1.

(3) Type <tab>.  Cell B1 is selected; the sentence you typed is still
    visible along row 1.

(4) Type "x".  Cell A1 shows "The quick bro", cell B1 shows "x", and
    "over the lazy dog" spreads over C1 and into D1.

(5) Type <return>.  Cell A2 is selected, and cells C1 and D1 are

(6) Move the mouse cursor over the right edge of the column header for
    column A.  The cursor changes to a double-headed left-right arrow.

(7) Double-click.

    Program action expected : to make column A wide enough to show the
    whole sentence, moving columns B and following to the right.

    Program action observed : Column A remains the same width it was

For comparison, "Optimal Column Width..." from the pop-up menu of the
column heading continues to work as I expect it to, and double-click
resize still works in the Base's Table Data View.
