Description Mike Kaganski 2013-11-28 06:37:10 UTC
Removing contents of a cell with formula and then undoing results in wrong value (and no formula) in the cell.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a text document.
2. Insert a new table.
3. In the first cell, enter the formula "=1".
4. Select the whole cell and delete it. (As described in bug 72100, there will be zero.)
5. Undo.

Expected: the cell should contain the formula "=1".

Actual result: it won't undo anything the first time, after second undo the value of the cell is now "10", no formula!

Tested with and AOO4.0 under Win7x64, and under Ubuntu 13.10 x64.

Thanks for bug report
reproduced in 4.1.3 on Fedora (RFR) 64 bit

in item 4 of description deleting may be done also by Backspace. Undo will be also incorrect (number will appear instead of formula).

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
