you may want to add your comments to that report.

Wow.  I just looked at the above enhancement request.
It has been ignored for 6 years.  Is there any reason
I should think my input likely to get this fixed ?

Yes, an bug with some activity is more likely to get fi

I don't mind rebuilding gnumeric from source. I don't
know the Python language and don't have time to learn
it, but I'm sure I could apply a patch.

Gnumeric is written in C, not python.

I assumed the graphical code was coded in an interpreted
language rather than C.  I know C quite well.  If you
point me to the right file, I will give a shot at a
submitting a patch.

I grep'd thru the src directory but didn't get any
meaningful hits on the keywords I tried.  I think it
should be easy to make the changes without understanding
the overall structure of gnumeric.

Part of the code is in src/sheet-object-graph.c and part is in goffice
The issue is that the fix must not break the gnumeric undo/redo
framework. I have some ideas about how this might be done.

BTW, I like gnumeric a lot better than the star office
derivatives and only want to see it improved.

Thanks for your interest,
