But I think you may have misread my note.


If you R-click the table *in the navigator* (use F5) there's a
Table|Unprotect option. It only appears though if the table does have a
protected cell. At least here.... and I have just checked it.

That is what I did, and you are correct that the choice is there.

But my point was that it did not unprotect the cell. It allowed me to
unprotect the entire Table, but the cell was still protected.

So, it doesn't 'work' as a workaround.

Also, Cor just confirmed that they intentionally (WHY???) removed the
context menu, but that there is a bug in that there should be an option
to unprotect the cell from the Table Menu.

Now to go open a bug/feature request to bring back the most useful
context menu choice for this...

I copied a table from calc to write. Protected the calculated data of two columns and unprotected with the procedure sugested by Mike Scott.

I repeated the protection, protecting first the last two columns and
later, the whole table. After that, I desprotected all the cells,
including the cells in the first two columns, following the
procedure of Mike Scott.

Two observations:

- I use LO version on Windows 7 starter (with SP1).
- I was working in high contrast mode
  (black background - white letters). When I selected the whole table
  only the unprotected cells where selected. Even more, if I wanted
  to select cells from the last two columns, was not possible.
  I supossed, because where protected.
