Description Vitaliy 2017-03-02 04:25:19 UTC
1)   Poor documentation. Wrong documentation. Nobody look at it for a long time, I suppose.
2)   Conditional Formatting work randomly.

Steps to Reproduce:
2.1) Select number of cells - a column "C" for example 
2.2) Go to Format - Conditional Formatting ~...~ Assigning Formats by Formula
2.3) Paste =ISFORMULA(C1) 
( 1} Thats the question by itself - why I should write cell but not column? 
  2} Plus in example in documentation https://help.libreoffice.org/Calc/Assigning_Formats_by_Formula it shown with "=" symbol but after "=" cut by system. )
2.4) After that OK-OK and got nothing.
2.5) Back to edit (very often Edit even not open - you should delete and readd it again) and change "C1" to some random cell a few times. Got random luck after that.

Actual Results:  
Random result. >90% no result

Expected Results:
Work as expected

Reproducible: Always

Here: https://help.libreoffice.org/Calc/Assigning_Formats_by_Formula
said that "The "&" symbol designates the current contents" - not work with "&" at all.

Some times C1 work too.

After few saves you cant Edit any rule.
