Screenshot showing the cells hidden by the formula

To reproduce:

1. Start with an empty table
2. Press Tab Tab =B1+D1+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0 Enter Ctrl+E
3. Press F2

Expected:

* The referred cells B1 and D1 have corner marks

Actual:

* The referred cells are not visible because the formula hides them

Proposed solution:

* Move the formula editor to another nearby position so that all referred cells are visible

Sample

Agree, even worse trying to modify the formula and those cells behind the formula are not selectable with the mouse.

If it were possible putting the formula between cells in a way that all cells were selectable.
