matrix properties N/A ?

6.10 on Windows
=============

In the Std Latex Article, start a new line
and insert a random 2x2 matrix. (Nothing
seems to depend on the size: I also
tried with a 6x6).

Now select the first column (say) and
right-click. One of the options is Properties.
When I select this, nothing happens, except
that a tiny square seems to appear at the
top-right of the blue selection bar. Similarly
if you select a row or (I think) any other
part of the matrix including the whole thing.

Presumably something's not being correctly
displayed.

Could this issue be related

Could this issue be related to the one I raised in my topic "Aligning matrix columns"? I had expected that selecting Properties as suggested here would bring up a menu including Matrix Properties from which I could select an option for aligning columns. But, as Phil says, nothing happens when I select Properties in this context.

Yes, it was jm's question

Yes, it was jm's question that suggested that I try this, to see if there was a Property analogous to the matrix Property in SWP5, where we can set the alignment.

I also poked around on Bugzilla, and found that this was already known as of Sept 9, when it was marked as "critical". That nothing appears to have been done in 4 months is a bit disappointing.
