Description Adrian Custer 2001-11-08 03:00:09 UTC
if groups are nested the +/- boxes behave strangedly, groups don't collapse

1) new gnumeric
2) group columns cde
3) group columns ghi
4) group columns b-j
5) collapse group cde (click on the box labeled "-" for that group)
6) collapse group ghi
7) collapse the outer group
--> only column "B" collapses so the sheet goes A, F, J, K... instead of A,
K...  Also the outer groups box is a "-" instead of a "+".

If we had done 5) collapse outer group (b-j) the sheet looks all right.

8) uncollapse group ghi (click on the right most "+"
9) uncollapse group cde
-> B is still missing and now has a "+" box immediately above it which
collapses /uncollapses the cde group. This box should not exist.

10) collapse the outer group (b-j)
11) uncollapse the outer group
-> everything back to step (4) so we can repeat the whole dance.

Doing this with rows shows similar behaviour except that the extra box does
not appear. 

Excel behaves differently.

Fixed in CVS.  Thanks for noticing this turned up a few oddities.
