The change might be ok, but in which way does that solve your problem? The target is overwritten in any case. Well yes, if you think you still are keeping the source and overwrite the target once more, then there is a difference. I have not seen it being a problem, but am not against the change. /Kaj

Reasonably, I have been asked by the developers to gain support from a wider body of users for a change in the user interface to Calc.

My request is *bug 68582 <>*

When you right-click a sheet tab in Calc you get a menu:

Insert Sheet...
Rename Sheet...
Move/Copy Sheet...
Tab Colour...

I would like this menu to be replaced by:
Insert Sheet...
Rename Sheet...
Move Sheet...
Copy Sheet...
Tab Colour...

Currently when copying a sheet, you must remember to click the copy button on the next menu to copy rather than move the sheet. I have just overwritten data I needed by forgetting to click this button."


*The most important reason is that the default behaviour of the command is to move the sheet, and this can destroy valuable data *without warning*. If, as I have done, you forget to click the "copy" button, you overwrite and destroy your existing sheet.
*A less important reason is that the interface is inconsistent: in other menus and toolbars, the choice of move or copy is at the top level, not hidden a level lower.**There are 12 commands in the menu: adding a thirteenth would not make it over long.*

*Please may I have support for this request.*
