I've got a column in calc 188.8.131.52 to contain the length of video clips; it's formatted to
The first inconvenience is that, when using autoincrement the times are incremented not by 1 second
but by 24 hours.
Whilst i understand that this is due to the way date/time is stored, with the date as integer and
the time as fraction, i think it is not exactly intuitive. I feel that it might be much more
convenient if LO would take the formatting into account and increment by 1 second (or, to be more
precise, by 1 LSD to the chosen format).
Similarly, when entering such times i think it would be more helpful to give precedence to the LSD,
so entering 8, for example, would be interpreted as 8 seconds (rather than 8 hours as is cuŕrently
the case) and 8:40 as 8m40s. Again, this interpretation should be format dependent.
What does anyone else think?
