Description Felipe Viggiano 2020-08-26 00:34:51 UTC
Description:
The shortcut for the Show Formula option in LibreOffice Calc is not available.
Although the menu option View > Show Formula refers to this shortcut, it appears to be not implemented (there is no reference to it in the Keyboard tab from the Customize dialog).

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a new spreadsheet in LibreOffice Calc.
2.Insert a a formula in the input line (for example =sum(2,2)).
3.Press Ctrl+` (grave accent).

Actual Results:
Nothing happens.

Expected Results:
The cell should show the formula (=sum(2,2)) instead of the result (4).


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: Yes

It's not defined also with:
Version: 7.1.0.0.alpha0+ (x64)
Build ID: 8700bace8c0714d853f5df6918ab9c8bb3d81f77
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 20180; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win
Locale: es-ES (es_ES); UI: en-US Calc: CL

But Ctrl+` (grave accent), Doesn't look good to me because it would be only available on keyboard layouts when the grave accent it is not a dead key or a shift key.

A long issue with Ctr+; with layouts where ; it's a shift key.

   I have access to both Ubuntu 20.04 and Windows 10. I am using the latest pre-release versions of LibreOffice 7.0 on them. (Window's version dated 13 Aug 2020 and Ubuntu dated 14 Aug 2020.)
   In the window's version, I created a Calc file with 7.0.1.1 entering the numbers 1-10 in column A1-A10. In column B1, I entered the formula, =ATAN(A1). Then I dragged this down to B10. The B column now contained the values of the arc tangent calculated from the respective cells of the A column.
   Then I pressed Ctrl+`. Now the B column contains the formulas used in the individual cells.
   In Ubuntu, I opened a previously created Calc sheet created in 2009. When I pressed, Ctrl+`, I saw the formulas used in the individual cells.
   If necessary, I can create before and after snapshots of this.

This sounds to me locale related, and maybe also the keyboard layout, just like the issue with Ctrl+; and Ctrl+Shift+; shortcuts discussed in bug 88027 (which Miguel also mentioned) and its many duplicates/see-alsos.

So it would be useful if people affected by this can try an en-US locale (if their keyboard has an ordinary ` key), and see if it makes any difference.

FWIW, Ctrl+` works for me on Windows:
Version: 6.4.6.2 (x64)

This is probably a separate issue, and has already been discussed in bug 115282.

Just did as suggested (changed the locale to en-US) and could confirm the issue still present.
My keyboard does have an ordinary ` key.
