an example spedsheet  to show the problem "conditional Formatting" under LO3.6

Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. create a conditional Formatting like (example in A2) if cellvalue = A1
2. copy it down, it doesn't work, the Adress is not relativ
3. in LO 3.5 it works well

Current behavior: the Celladress is not relativ

Expected behavior: copy like LO3.5

Your file (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=66501) crashes LO and LO :-(

Please explain how you did your conditional formatting.

Best regards. JBF

"Copy it down"? I can open the sample document with (WIN), but no idea how to reproduce the problem. 

@Otto Zorro 
Thank you for your report – unfortunately important information is missing.
May be hints on <http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport> will help you to find out what information will be useful to reproduce your problem? If you believe that that  is really sophisticated please as for Help on a user mailing list
- Write a meaningful Summary describing EXACTLY what the problem is
- Attach screenshots with comments if you believe that that might explain the 
  problem better than a text comment. Best way is to insert your screenshots
  into a DRAW document and to add comments that explain what you want to show
- Contribute a document related step by step instruction containing every 
  key press and every mouse click how to reproduce your problem 
  (similar to example in Bug 43431)
– if possible contribute an instruction how to create a sample document 
  from the scratch
- add information 
  -- what EXACTLY is unexpected
  -- and WHY do you believe it's unexpected (cite Help or Documentation!)
  -- concerning your OS (Language)
  -- concerning your LibO (UI language, Locale setting)
  –- Libo settings that might be related to your problems 
  -- how you launch LibO and how you opened the sample document
   -- everything else crossing your mind after you read linked texts

To get anywhere here we'd need bug#55710 resolved I suspect.

No, The problem in Bug 55710 is only import of old style conditional formats. This bug does not affect conditional formats.

I'll try to go through all the conditional format bugs that show up in my list as soon as I finished the refactoring of the conditional format dialogs and cell attribute storing of conditional formats.

On pc Debian x86-64 with 3.6 sources updated some days ago, I could:
- open the file
- selected the line and copied down so in column F, I had E3*B3, E4*B4, etc.

Perhaps I missed something.

Any update about this one?
