Awesome. Thank you


This does not work.


Thank you.

For it to work properly, we should select for deletion only he rows which show up in blue in the row numbers on the left. In step 4, these row numbers are shown with black numbers in the image. In LibreOffice Calc, these now show as blue, to indicate that these are filtered rows. (ver 7.3 currently) [see attached image].

If we select all rows, or select the header row, all rows will be deleted, not just the empty ones.
