1. Open a new blank Writer document
2. Add a simple Table
3. Click inside a cell
3. Protect the cell
Note that the cursor jumps to an adjacent cell.
Note: Unprotecting a cell does not cause the cursor to jump to another cell.
Indeed. Can you explain what is the use of having the cursor remaining in a protected cell ?
Because that is where I put it.
It makes no sense to just randomly jump to an adjacent cell when you protect it, just like it would make no sense to jump to another cell after applying a style to it, or anything else.
Hmmm... just tested and it does the same thing (jumps to an adjacent cell) in 4.3.6, so it isn't a new bug... maybe isn't even a bug at all.
I think the reason I never noticed it before is because when I was protecting cells before, I was usually doing many at once, and doing it from the context menu.
But, to be consistent, I'd say that it shouldn't then allow you to even place the cursor back into the protected cell, if it is going to kick you out.
<shrug> for me it just doesn't feel right.
But, resolving as invalid...
