Hi Luis,

Thanks for reporting.
What kind of spreadsheet object is this supposed to be?
When I add a Calc spreadsheet object in the same document, I can easily double click and edit..
Comment 2 Luis Matos 2014-06-22 14:04:41 UTC
can you confirm that you see a spreadsheet table and double clicking it, it opens a text editor/viewer?
Comment 3 Luis Matos 2014-06-22 14:05:17 UTC
it is supposed to be a spreasheet.

Yes, but where did it come from, how did you add it :)
Comment 5 Luis Matos 2014-06-23 08:47:55 UTC
it was added on a .doc file, from an .xls file, a year ago. (don't know what version).

Double-clicking it does nothing.
