From: Tom <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Table formula changes are not always necessary when moving rows Date: Mon, 28 Feb 2011 11:43:17 +0000 (UTC) [thread overview] Message-ID: <loom.20110228T122543email@example.com> (raw) I have a table in which I sum the values of all rows in the last row: vsum(@1..@-I-1). The problem is when move a row with M-up before the first row (e.g. I press M-up on the second row) then org modifies this formula to vsum(@2..@-I-1). This is not always the expected behavior, because in this case I just want to move the data in the rows, but still want to sum the values of all the rows from the first to the last. A similar case is when I want to insert a row before the first row of such a table. In that case too the formulas should be left alone, because I still want to sum all the rows, including the newly inserted first row. In such cases when the formula is modified Org should either print warning to the echo area, so the user notices when the formulas are changing because of the move, or it should ask the user what to do ("do you want to modify the formulas?").
