Please could you provide a screenshot ? Did you see that LibO-Calc 3.5.0 has now a multiline formula bar ? http://www.libreoffice.org/download/3-5-new-features-and-fixes/ Best regards. JBF

Created attachment 57877 [details] shows the difference between formula bar and cell formula as per request i have added a screenshot; i know there is a multiline bar, but this does not change the situation regards tom

Same problem here. The formula bar is not correctly updated, try to click over a cell when typing into formula bar. Another problem is that updating is very very slow, almost unusable. Regression from 3.4.x and big usability problem.

I do not reproduce with LO 3.5.2 rc0+ (Version ID : 75fce8a-720bbeb-73cb0b8-f269e46-686380c) under Ubuntu 11.10 x86_64 with gnome-shell. Not tested with Unity. Best regards. JBF

Maybe Windows specific?

(In reply to comment #5) > Maybe Windows specific? I do not think so, the screenshot shows an Ubuntu screen.

Open Calc, push "=" button in the formula bar and then click over a cell -> formula bar not updated.

has anybody tried LibO 3.5.1 RC1 and RC2? is the bug still there?

(In reply to comment #8) > has anybody tried LibO 3.5.1 RC1 and RC2? > > is the bug still there? Yes, it is.

I can't reproduce the original problem (type in cell and input line is not updated), but I can reproduce that a click on cell or a selection of range adds the cell/range only to the formula in the cell, but not in the input line. @Noel: your's?

(In reply to comment #10) > I can't reproduce the original problem (type in cell and input line is not > updated) I suspect that the original problem may be due to the fact that in certain conditions (I don't know which...) the formula bar updating become very slow. However, I think it may be a different problem after all.

I guess :-( Also I can only reproduce the range selection only updating the cell content but not the inputbar

Is there any chance to see this fix in version 3.5.x? With this bug Calc is almost unusable for me... Thank you.
