Dear LibreOffice Team,
I wanted to create a squared table in a crossword style. So, suppose you have a table like 15x20 (columns x rows).
A first glitch I noticed, is that I can't divide all cells equally through the left click options once I decide later to make them larger or smaller, i.e. I have to set the size from the beginning, otherwise the reallocation will make the table extra huge and extend it to the next page.
Now that I have my squares I want to split some of them horizontally where the crossword clues will be entered (Scandinavian style). The thing is that when I split one cell, there is in fact an invisible line splitting all the cells of the row at the same point. This means that I cannot move the separating line from cell to cell individually in case I need to. In my attachment you will notice this. E.g. in cells 1,2,3 (also the far right one) the upper separating line within them is actually one imaginable straight line and if I want to draw it a bit lower (e.g. in cells 2 and 3) it will move in all cells of the row (if at all).
I'd appreciate if there is a solution to that. Thank you and have a nice day.
On which LO version are you? (Last stable one is 5.0.2)
You say "In my attachment you will notice this", but there is no attachment.
Set to NEEDINFO.
Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided version information & attachment.

I'll try again with the attachment. Notice that cell splitting is restricted to all vertical cells and I cannot set sizes of the boxes individually.
I think Writer tables are not the best solution for creating crosswords :)
There are dedicated applications for it.
Can you recommend one programme with that function? Not the classic-style crosswords but the Scandinavian ones, as in my pic. Thaaank you!

Well, KDE has this: https://userbase.kde.org/KrossWordPuzzle http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=111726
- Different crossword types: American, Swedish, Number Puzzle and Crossnumber. User defined types are also possible based on a set of rules. Barred crosswords can be played/designed (bars added automatically).
KDE apps are easiest to get running on Linux. There is work on getting everything run smoothly on Win: https://techbase.kde.org/Projects/KDE_on_Windows
I cannot download it. It says all the time ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT.
Is there a way you can upload the file somewhere and send me a link?
Thank you again!

I recommend you install Kubuntu Linux and then install it using their package manager: http://kubuntu.org/

I can confirm with Version: 184.108.40.206.alpha0+ and 4.0; win7
create table in writer
split first cell vertically into 2 cells
split cell bellow the first cell vertically into 2 cells
move border of the cell
both cells are affected
I'm able to change only one cell (for example like in word - standard is changing all cells like in Writer, but when I select one cell, I can change position of split of one cell)
