Description bugzillaah 2014-07-26 13:22:02 UTC
Problem description: 

When I enter text in a Left Justified cell it is truncated at the border with the cell to the right even though that cell is empty. In other spreadsheets the trucation only occurs when the adjacent cell has actual data in it.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Format a cell as Left justified making certain the adjacent cell on the left is empty
2. Enter some text that exceeds the length of the cell

Current behavior: Truncation

Expected behavior: Continued Text Visibility which also shows as WYSIWYG on printing.

This behavior is defacto for MS Office for Mac 2004 and 2011

Operating System: Mac OS X
Version: release

Assume you mean the cell to the *right* needs to be empty.
Please attach a small test document which illustrates your report.

As described, the bug isn't reproducible on my installation with a newly created document.
