Re: filtering and copying in gnumeric (Andrea Taroni)

Yeah - it is a must have, but an intrusive implementation would be needed.

First step would be an acknowledgment from the developers that this is a feature worth implementing. Any patch that attempts to make it work is going to touch a lot of things.

Hi Andrea

This is a known bug.
The bug was posted in 2005. Not sure if anyone is actively trying to fix it, but it would be a big step forward if someone could. I would agree it is a pretty serious limitation to an otherwise commendable bit of software.

    Dear All,

    I am looking for a way to easily copy and paste filtered data in
    gnumeric. That is to say I wish to filter a data set, copy the
    resulting smaller data set, and paste it elsewhere. Whereas I would
    like to get only the filtered data when I paste, I in fact get the
    full data set. I cannot find documentation on this issue, except
    for a
    message on this list a while ago, which went unreplied:

    I would like to stress that I am very much a proponent of gnumeric,
    and prefer it to the very cumbersome alternatives there are out
    This does however seem to me to be a rather basic limitation of

    I would appreciate any help you may give,
