[Solved] [Edit][Fill] Not an option?

Postby Bald Eagle » Tue Aug 07, 2018 10:55 pm

Hi all - I use OpenOffice at work, and on my Windows partition, but I have LibreOffice on my Linux Mint partition - it was an ease of installatuion thing.

I noticed when trying to do some usual tasks that trying to use [Alt][E][I][D] didn't bring up a fill menu option. Clicking with the mouse din't even give me a selectable fill option under edit.
Do I have something configured wrong.... I find this - highly unexpected.

Thanks!

In which application?
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.6 on Xubuntu 18.04.2 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP

WIth a single cell being selected there is nothing to fill.
Please, edit this topic's initial post and add "[Solved]" to the subject line if your problem has been solved.

In the continuing effort to improve LO and confuse users, "Sheet" was added to the menu bar and "Fill" was moved from "Edit" to "Sheet", so you have to use [Alt][S][I][D] in LO instead of [Alt][E][I][D].

[Alt][O][S][H][I][T]
So that's what it was.

Thanks for that - I'll go give it a look the next time I boot back into Linux.

Thanks Bill!
