I have found a bug in LO3.6 with data validating. If someone would be 
kind enough to check if it is resolved in LO4 before I file a bug report 
and a feature request.

To replicate create some data to be the validate list such as
A1 = cat
A2 = dog
A3 = cat2

Now in a cell (A5) enter cat2 and Data>Validity validation from the list 
A1:A3. In error have Stop and a message, say "invalid value".
Try to type mouse into the cell, an error message arrives.
Click on the cell and drag the + down to copy down. cat2 auto increments 
to cat3 and the data is not checked for validity.
Contents pasted into a cell with validity checking are also not checked.

Google sheets marks cells with invalid data with a red corner and error 
message. This would be great in LO also

Also, using past special with format allows you to paste data validation to
cells without changing the value (really good) but doesn't validate data
whether it is complying.
