Tables unusable

Postby william » Thu Apr 06, 2017 1:39 pm

1. Have you tried inserting a table? I get cells so tiny I can't place the cursor in them. They enlarge when I type in a cell but I can't place the cursor in the particular cell I want to type in.

2. I can't select multiple cells to set their properties, as I did in 7.2.8, e.g., I could drag to select a column or row or part thereof and then use the Cell Properties dialog, but not now in 7.3. I CAN select the text in multiple cells but the Cell Properties dialog doesn't change or set anything unless I do just one cell at a time. This is a show-stopper for me, I can't work like that, using the dialog separately on every cell in the rows and/or columns I need to set up.
A work-around that might be OK is if pasting a table retained the original table's properties (borders, alignment, etc.).

3. Can no longer tab from cell to cell or to add cells at the end of the table. Tab only inserts tab stops inside the cell you're in, which isn't of much use.

4. Within a table, up and down arrow keys move the cursor horizontally, not vertically.

We have a bug for this issue. Can you try opening ZD in browser and see if you can do desired table operations?

Not sure what it means to open the desktop app in a browser. Opening my account at zimbra.xmission.com in IE11 gets me Zimbra 8.7.4_GA_1730 where my table operations and all the other operations I'm used to work fine. Is that what you meant?

Ah, OK, didn't know we could do that. Still have all the same table issues except that inserting a new table gives proper-sized cells that I can type into.

By the way, launching the desktop in my default browser (IE11) gives a garbled and unusable UI. Copying the "open in web browser" link from the setup screen and opening in Chrome is fine.
