Freezing panes

Postby ianbrown » Fri Sep 18, 2009 2:27 pm

In Microsoft excel spreadsheet package there is a facility to "freeze panes", to hold all data above a selected line to always be in view as you scroll through the data below, useful when viewing charts, tables etc.

I have tried using the search and help facility but cannot find a solution, it may be the terminology?

How do you freeze panes in OO Calc?

In the Window menu there are options to both Split and Freeze. Select a row or column and choose Split to keep that row or column always visible. Choose a single cell and Freeze if you want to have both horizontal and vertical splits that intersect at the chosen cell.
