Description Nicolas Mailhot 2012-03-02 01:00:43 UTC
When editing a cell containing text, it is not possible to apply specific styles to specific selections from the formula bar, the contextual formatting menu will only appear if one right-clicks the text selection in the cell itself

Please make formatting from the formula bar possible

Thanks for bugreport
What about Styles:
In difference from Writer, Calc have no Character or Paragraph styles. Therefore makes no sense to apply style to part of cell.

What about context menu: please, formulate it as Functionality Request
(in msExcel context menu in Formula Bar works, but formatting in Formula Bar not shown)

Contextual menus are not available in formula bar - you have to use toolbar buttons (or shortcuts) to change text formatting. Interestingly, when I right-click in formula bar field all formatting defined earlier in the cell edit mode is cleared. Good that undo action is available. Is it a bug or feature?

For me it's definitely a bug, didn't bother to file it since in-cell form
