I leave a space between my headers and my column data because it's easier for me to read that way. When I then try to grab a selection of data to sort and press a sort ascending/descending button, it refuses the sort the top row of data in the selection because it thinks it's a header.

I know I can go into data->sort and uncheck "range contains column labels" but it's very frustrating to have to do that every time when I want to be able to quickly sort data periodically as I add it. Is there any way to permanently tell Calc to stop trying to figure out where my column headers are and just sort precisely the selection I choose?

Judged from my experience, not based on release info the default behaviour you describe should already be changed the way you want it. Do you still use a version from 4.x.y series (or AOO)?

Ah yes, I'm running LibreOffice4. You believe that it's simply that I'm running an old version? I'll update then and hopefully that will make my work simpler. Thank you!

Ah, that's better! Thank you, Lupp. Updating fixed it. :3
