win 0625 branch steps: 1 open attachment in composer 2 From inside the table, copy 'PASS' from under "Win32" and click inside cell under 'MAC' and hit CTRL +V 3 Do this for all rows under "Mac" 4 Observe that the 'PASS' text gets left-aligned... 5 Now, highlight all 'PASS' under the "MAC" column and hit the center-align button Results: Table contents mes sup big time.. I actually even crashed once doing this..but cannot reproduce again. Pls let me know if i should attacht he stacktrace here..or file aseperate bug..or what..Thanks!
how are you highlighting the text? If I select using the ctrl+click or if I set the caret within the column and select Table|Table Select|Column and then select center it works fine. Also note in your example that each cell is already centered
I am hoghlighting using the mouse... >Also note in your example that each cell is already centered That's what the fun is all about...when I have the 'PASS' in my clipboard and actually click inside the cell under 'Mac', the caret blinks at the center and so I assume that what/when I paste stuff inside that cell, it should align itself at the center. However, what happens in reality is far different. If I do a CTRL +V inside that cell, the contents align to the left...
so, you are highlighting each cell separately, selecting center and then go to the next cell? You can't use the mouse and select each section of text in a single select unless you combine that with ctrl-click. ok I see how you got the text to go to the left align. Note: with the inital selection of PASS is done, you must select the text only, not the surrounding center (set caret within the text and dbl-click, not trpl-click on win98). Go to the empty cell, make sure the caret is within the center element and press ctrl+v -- the paste should result in the PASS going left align. On some pastes the PASS goes before the center and on other pastes the PASS goes after the center. after pasting, set the caret back into the center element, and hit delete or backspace, you will get weird results -- like the P in Pass gets deleted, even though the caret is in the center element, or backspace the caret (if the center is after the text) and the caret shifts to the right of PASS, but the whitespace where the center was does not collapse. Lots of whitespace remains in each cell.

btw, I think Shrir should be required, as part of his job ttle, to use the word "beserk" somewhere in the summary of every bug he reports. I no longer see the "table goes beserk" problem, but the issue of paste not picking up the alignment is still there. 097

dont know yet if this is layout bug or editor bug
Whiteboard: EDITORBASE; ? days;
I don't think this bug is really EDITORBASE in that I don't think a majority of users will see this bug and be highly concerned about the lack of alignment carryover. It isn't that hard for a user to reapply alignment. (Assuming we don't regress and users can set alignment.)
pushing off 098 to 099
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.8 → mozilla0.9.9
Using the test page, I drag-selected various portions across 2 or more cells, then clicked on all allignment buttons and found no problems. Please test this again.
bad experiences fade away with time.....this is long gone (verif on 0116 trunk)
