Hello, i would like to know where's the Text in Columns feature. According to documentation it is in Data > Text in Columns but it looks like the GUI got renewed these days.

These are the specs:

  • LibreOffice: OS Name:
  • Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise OS
  • Version:10.0.15063 N/A Build 15063


Hidden feature

Did your cell D8 contain a text or a number?

Hello @cyepes117,

The Text to Column feature is still available inside the menu Data, but you first have to select some cells from 1 column, then choose the menu "Data : Text to Columns...".

Ther must also be at least one cell not being blank in the selected range.
