Could someone please explain why the 'Shift Down' option in the 'Paste Special' menu of Calc is greyed out when I try to cut and insert a row of cells. It is not greyed out when I try the same option with 'Copy'.

This complicates any attempt to move cell contents around in a spreadsheet. I am coming from the Excel world and the functionality I am trying to duplicate is the 'Insert Cut Cells' option.

Please, can you inform what is your OS and LibreOffice version?, and can you explain step by step?. I cannot see this issue with or in Win7x64

Ok, I can see now, is when a row(s) or column(s) is(are) cut, seems a bug because the option is inverted, right with rows and down with column. There is a reported bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=42265

Iam using LO on XP/SP3 and do not observe any problem with PasteSpecial/ShiftDown. I tested single cells, arrays and entire rows (single and multi). What is your LO version?
