Sample ods file attached in case you need it for your testing / verification.
Happens in :
1. opensuse Factory - Libreoffice Version: 220.127.116.11, Build ID: 430m0(Build:2)
2. Debian Wheezy Backports - Libreoffice Version: 18.104.22.168.0+, Build ID: 430m0(Build:2)
Both the libreoffice configuration is reset (rm -rf ~/.config/libreoffice) and retested to confirm that problem still exist.
# Sample ods file attached in case you need it for your testing / verification,
Conditional formatting using Formula as described below:
For cell C2, if C2>B2 , change background colour to Green
For cell C2, if C2<B2 , change background colour to Red
# See worksheet named :Sample.png
Problem 1 :
Copy of formatting (is intermittent) sometimes does not work - conditional format is not copied.
You have to randomly try to find out for yourself all the possible variations. One reproducable example :
1. Select C2:C31, which is conditionally formatted.
2. Copy format and paste to D2:D31, only D2 is formated as shown in image.
# See worksheet named : intermittent.png
Problem 2 :
Properly conditional formatted spreadsheet may lost some of its conditional formatting after saving and immediately reopen.
# See worksheet named : lost.png
Once set conditional formatting for C2, you can use Paintbrush to copy and paste it to the range you want.
Click on C2 to select the cell, click on paintbrush to copy the format and select the range you desire. Format is applied when you release mouse button.
Another way to do that:
Format > Conditional Format > Manage:
Select C2. Edit:
In the range windows insert ":"
and set K31, for example, or D31.
OK to apply our settings.
you can delete C3, C4, C5 and D3, D4, D5.
The whole range from C2 to D31 ot K31 is formated.
Is there a problem to do this for you?
Hi Jacques, thanks for replying.
1. I've downloaded the file that I've previously uploaded and tried what you've suggested.
Direct link (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=107731)
Copy format using paintbrush as you've suggested.
Yes, the range is formated properly.
Save the file.
Re-open the file and found that the formatting is lost.
Reference Screnshot http://postimg.org/image/e5rtwaen7/
Noticed that after using the paintbrush for formatting, the conditional formatting is visually correct.
However, select (example shown here, cell K23) and verify the conditional formatting criteria, it is not there.
Therefore when you save and reopen, the formatting is lost.
2. Testing with actual use case - daily update
- For actual usage, data are added daily so the conditional formatting have to be done daily
- Also the conditional formatting for each row (of the same column) may be different.
Just like copying of value and formulas, can the copying of conditional formatting be done as a whole column ?
Using the same file that I've previously uploaded, copy conditional formatting from C2 to C2:C31
Conditional formatting is okay visually for C2:C31
Select column C and copy format using paintbrush.
Paste format to column D.
The conditional formatting is copied over to column D but not properly done.
The above information for your review.
You are right. Conditional format is applied but not recorded with paintbrush in LO 22.214.171.124 Build ID: f9b3ad49d92181b0a1fe7e76f785a2c2cd0847d3
& Windows 7 Home Premium.
Works as expected with LO 126.96.36.199.0+
Build ID: 92216be6ce13990b8ea6b6264c656d2bc1746401
TinderBox: Win-x86@42, Branch:libreoffice-4-2, Time: 2014-07-14_16:21:42
Set the Status to NEW, Hardware to ALL and Keywords to regression.
thanks for confirmation.
just curious, what is the next step?
First version found with applied and non-recorded paintbrush:
LO 188.8.131.52.beta1 Build ID: b7cfa1eab1cb1e94f71d6df6612b73f231d0bf92
These leaves no gap betwween the working version and the non-working one with hope this helps dev.
Next step: Wait for Markus advice.
Have a nice day,
Looks like another duplicate of Bug 86253. I tested the sheet after fixing the bug and it seems that I can't reproduce the issue anymore.
Please retest as soon as the fix appears in a daily build.
