I am using LibreOffice in Ubuntu 12.04. Ever since I changed from OpenOffice I have noticed that Calc will not allow me to copy a selection of cells in one row to several other rows. It only allows me to do one cell
to a range in a column.

Does anybody have this problem? Is it a bug that has been discussed
previously? If not, why not?



I am using 3.6. I can highlight and copy say B6:F6 (a selection in row 6).

I can highlight B37:b47 (several other rows) and paste and I paste the copy from above into all of the rows so that the cells B6:F6 are repeated in b37:f37 to b47:f47.

Are you saying you cannot do that. I vaguely recollect that at one point in the past I observed your result but in 3.6 it works as above.


Many of these "bugs" from version 3.5.x and early 3.6.x has been fixed in the latest 3.6.5/3.6.6 [coming out next week]and 4.0.x that is the newest version/line.

I know that Ubuntu 12.04 installed 3.5.x by default, but you really should try the newer versions for the very fact that each version is meant to fix previous version's bugs as well as add productivity features. I wish that Ubuntu would update their repository to the newest version of 3.6.x, but they have not.

Please try 3.6.5/.6 on your system [which needs to have 3.5.7 removed first] and you might really like the changes. Or, you could give 4.0.2 a try.

I run my main system [desktop] on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with MATE desktop environment. The laptops use 12.10 and one will be used to test 13.04 at the end of the month. I am now running 4.0.2 on all my systems.
