Reopening as bug 90821 doesnt cover what this enhancement intends to fix.

I'm quite aware that they dont. ;D

I believe it will be possible. We can detect when an entire row is selected, as
you can see it in the statusbar, so using the same information, we should be
able to change the behaviour of the uno commands to insert accordingly.

Not saying that it should, but i'm suggesting that unifying the behaviour means
that its easier for users to have a consistent experience between the apps.

I'm aware of this, which is why i have asked that alternative insert uno
commands be created for writer which have the similar insertion direction
behavior (bug 90882).

Another problem is that these same named uno commands have the single icons to
them when they have different behaviours, which also causes more problems.
