I want to select two cells that are not adjacent, but holding down the CTRL key does not seem to work. How can I perform this action?


1.1.x

In OpenOffice.org 1.1.x, if you click in a cell, it is not selected, but focused. To select a cell, you need to

  1. Click on a cell to focus it
  2. Hold down the SHIFT key and then click on the cell again to select it

After having done so, you'll be able to select multiple non-adjacent cells, by holding down the CTRL key as you select new cells.


2.x

In all 2.x versions, you can use the CTRL key to mark cells that are not adjacent.
