I would really appreciate if you could make a feature that would allow to automatically highlight the active row (or the row and even the column) while moving in spreadsheet. It would greatly improve orientation in large tables.

Something like this:


edit retag flag offensive reopen merge delete

It turned out that I'm not the first one who asks for this (no surprise). There already is the Bug 33201 from 2011. If anyone is interested in, can you please add a comment there to express your concern? Thanks. Link:

The same improvement would be helpful in Database. One can highlight a row in a table during data entry, but as soon as one enters any individual field, the highlight disappears.

@Ales, thank you for submitting the bug and providing a link here. I agree that it is a very nice feature that should be available (as an option) on ANY spreadsheet.
