Subject [Bug 120383] New: Remove/disable date automatic reformat
Date Thu, 26 Jul 2012 23:20:10 GMT

          Priority: P3
            Bug ID: 120383
           Summary: Remove/disable date automatic reformat
          Severity: blocker
        Issue Type: DEFECT
    Classification: Application
                OS: Linux
          Hardware: PC
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: AOO 3.4.0
         Component: editing
           Product: spreadsheet

I cannot express out much of a pain in the ass this "feature" is, nor how many
hours I have lost trying to figure out how to turn it off, only to find out it
can't be turned off, only hacked around. Even completely turning off
Auto-correct does not disable this feature. This is beyond ridiculous. I have
yet to meet anyone who finds this "feature" useful--just hundreds upon hundreds
of people with abject frustration.

I work with CSV files which are plain-text and do not support formatting of any
kind. Unfortunately both Apple and Microsoft also are under the mistaking
impression that this "feature" is essential, and it can't be disabled in their
software either. This feature makes OOo Calc worse than useless.

This is a duplicate of
where developers argue users want this feature and the users insist repeatedly
they don't.

At the very worst I should have to enable this feature, so cut this shit out.
