Moving a row through a rowspan loses content
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Steps to reproduce:

  1. In the wikitext editor, create a table with three rows and two columns
  2. Add a rowspan=2 on the second column, spanning rows 2 and 3
  3. Add content to all cells
  4. In the visual editor, move the first row "below" twice, so as to move it to the bottom of the table

Actual result: The content that was originally in (1, 2) was lost while passing through the rowspan.

Expected result: I'm not sure. Maybe the current result is the expected behavior, and maybe this will be moot once T125145 is solved. I thought I'd open this just to make sure you were aware of it.

I think this is the (least un-)expected behaviour. The alternative is wimping out like Excel does and not letting you move through a merged cell at all.
