Description Dave 2016-03-04 15:35:27 UTC
Can not Edit table Fields on a form in design mode in Base in the 5 Version of Open Office. 
In all other version I have you simply click on the field( or right click) while in design mode within a Table on the form in Base to bring up its control, so that it can be edited.

However on the computer with the latest Version of Libre base Ver 5.0  you can't.
It seems to only allow changes to the table in the form  it self.

I am on a gateway Computer using Windows 10 using HSQLDB 2.3  on a small Lan using Base in Multi User mode.

 I can edit the fields easily on the other computers not using Ver 5 of Libre Office.

 Just to be clear this is not a database table itself but the table you view on a form.

Could this be a duplicate of Bug 96482?
Version is set to + Master. Is it set right?

Yes, the problem as described by the user is access to the properties of the table control.

Note that this is fixed in the current 5.1 release but will not be backported to 5.06.
