I have (naturally) a number of sheets / files. Sometimes I want to
copy let's say the first row, which contains all the names of the
columns etc., to create a new document. (not ALL documents use the
same format) Imagine there are 20-25 columns, most of which have
different widths. But when I copy row No.1 from file A to a new
file, no matter HOW I paste it there, it ALWAYS comes out with equal
column width (+ the default height of the new document).
I think you are right.
In an ancient but VERY useful software = Lotus123 ...
I can't speak for Lotus 1-2-3 (which anyway has been discontinued).
If I understand the page:
correctly, "Form control is selected Not supported" means that Calc
is not able to do ...
I think the relevant entry here is for "Calc table or cells are
selected", which says "Copies the formatting that is specified in the
Format - Cells dialog as well as the formatting of the cell
contents". That confirms that column width is not included.
I am also under the impression, that the "paint brush" works ONLY
within one file, but not across different files.
Styles do not help either (as far as I can tell), since I could not
find any tab there, where I can specify column width + height.
I think this all boils down to the fact that column width is a
property of entire columns, of course, whereas the other formatting
aspects that Calc is happy to copy may apply only to some cells in a column.
Is there a trick?
There are some workarounds:
o Select the entire sheet in the source spreadsheet: go to Edit |
Select All or press Ctrl+A or click the cell at top left where the
column and row headers meet.
o Paste into the target spreadsheet. Create a new sheet in which to
paste if necessary.
o Delete unwanted material.
o Go to Insert | Sheet From File... .
o Browse to the source document and click Insert.
o Select the appropriate sheet to insert and the required position in
the target document.
o Delete unwanted material as above.
I trust this helps.
