I just discovered, when reporting the bug in 5.x that there is no way to Unprotect protected cells in 5.x in Writer Tables, that this feature was intentionally removed from the context menu.

Our users use this feature all the time.

Please bring back the context menu choice for this, even if it changes to 'Table > [Un]Protect Cell(s)

Since I see no means to unprotect a cell now, I set severity to major.

Hi Cor,

These are two different issues...

Bug 93713 that you closed as a duplicate of this one was an actual, genuine BUG.

This bug is just a feature/enhancement request to bring back the context menu choices for protecting/unprotecting cells in Writer Tables, which were apparently intentionally removed for some reason.

I think they should be kept separate, so I re-opened the bug reporting the actual bug.

Nope, back to dupe of 93713 -- which is now back over to UX-advise to add an "Unprotect cells" back to the Table menu by default.

Toolbar and context menu were "simplified" by Design/UX-advise agreement.

This is and never was a duplicate of bug 93713.

This was a feature/enhancement request to undo something that was deliberately removed.

So, I'm duping it to my new feature/enhancement request, bug 93837, to 'Allow customization of the Context Menus'...
