[FEATURE REQUEST] Calc - Insert or Delete cell animation indicator [closed]

Hello Everyone,

In other spreadsheet programs such as Excel, when you Insert or Delete columns or rows, there is a slight animation to show the user that the process is being performed. Granted if there is visible text on your screen below where you are adding or deleting rows, then the text moving up or down is an inidcator that something is happening, but when there isn't it may be a nice thing to have some kind of indicator letting the user know that the function is being performed?

If anyone knows of a setting for this please let me know. If not, are there any others that would desire this feature?

Thank you for all these great programs.

Thank You to anyone who reads this and has any advice to offer.

Note the animation indicator I am referring to is a minor downshifting or upshifting animation when rows or columns are added or deleted.

The place to request features is Bugzilla

But I hope this one is never implemented. It was added to Excel 2013 and I had to edit the registry to disable this feature as it was distracting and slowing down screen updates.

Thank You for the response I am not sure if we are speaking of the same slight animation indicator, because the one I am speaking of has been around since Office 2000 and maybe even before that I am not sure. The one I am speaking of is a minor downshifting or upshifting animation when rows or columns are added or deleted. You might be referring to something different, I don't think the thing I am speaking of would have any affect on screen updates?
