Description dave_365 2012-05-25 06:31:19 UTC
LibreOffice Calc spreadsheet does not record or compare changes in text formatting.

To reproduce:

Enter a non-zero length string in any cell

Turn on record changes

Select text in cell and change format to BOLD

Observe Edit/Changes/Show does not have any recorded changes.

Similar behavior comparing spreadsheets with only formatting changes.

This isn't an enhancement but a bug. Going to change to BUG -> Minor -> Low

Thanks for reporting

This is actually not a bug but a known limitation.  We don't track formatting changes, but only hard value changes and that's intentional.  Setting it to enhancement.

FYI Excel has the same limitation.
