Gnumeric lacks an "insert cut cells" functionality which is really
useful in moving around columns.
This is the only feature that is keeping me from dumping Excel.

This will take some care.
Comment 2 Kjartan Maraas 2002-06-07 11:35:51 UTC
GNOME2 bug?
Comment 3 Jody Goldberg 2002-06-07 12:23:04 UTC
Also unrelated to gnome2.

Please see duplicate Bug 351921 as the proposed solution is suboptimal. This solution is used by Excel and other spreadsheets but is not the best especially for experienced spreadsheet users. Either drag-n-drop or Select then right click on destination and "Move selected rows" would be more optimal until some predictive brain interface is developed.
