Tried that:

1. Ungroup.
2. Double click.

Still can't edit.


1. Ungroup.
2. Right click | Edit text does allow one to insert text, but only into the
first cell.

Something seems a bit wrong with this UI, for some value of the word "wrong".


PS Ah!!!!

1. Ungroup.
2. Unselect.
3. Select.

I suggest that this should be documented clearly. Certainly the current
wording, which simply tells the user to double-click, should be expanded.
