[tdf-discuss] Calc AutoFilter change is a regression in usability

that's more in line with the standard filter.
Below shows the increase in steps, however the time increase when
you are working with over 600 rows of independent data means I'm
going from a second to seconds, which adds up quickly when you do
this hundreds of times in a day.
Again I appreciate the redesign, I just think it replaced the wrong
thing. Quick easy access is what the autofilter is for. Add an
additional filter, or replace the standard filter with the new one.
This update has decreased my functionality, and ADDED unnecessary
time to my workday.
Full message from Shari:
I have several users, also heavily complaining about the new
AutoFilter. In fact, for the very most use cases the new AutoFilter
is much more time consuming than it was before.
Unfortunately I do not have the time and skills to start a serious
initiative for reintroducing the old version of AutoFilter.
Is anyone around who follows the opinion on the new AutoFilter and
is able and willing to file a bug and promote an improvement by
reconstituting the well-proven old version of AutoFilter?
...or at least forward this to the appropriate mailing list, if this
should be wrong here. ;-)
