Description Joel Madero 2014-02-25 16:32:19 UTC
Due to Rachit's great work we now have multiple colors for cells that reference other cells in a formula. Currently though this isn't "live", the colors highlight after you leave the cell and then return to the cell.

Enhancement Request:
Live color highlighting for all cells referenced in another cell.

Select A1
Type in = (then click on multiple different cells with a + in the middle for example A2+A3+A4 )

Observed: You'll see that only the last cell selected is highlighted and it's grey. It would be nice if we had the color scheme work there as well.

@ Rachit,
Can you also look at this bug (may be related)?

Hi GerardF.
Sorry, but currently I am busy with my Google Summer of Code, so I won't be able to look at it for some time. But, you can surely ping me on IRC if you or someone else wishes to work on it. I am r4chi7 on IRC. :-)

This is a duplicate of Bug 38304. Someone uploaded a patch to solve this issue over there. Maybe someone can have a look and see if this really works?

He started patch, but abandoned it, or at least it's marked abandoned in gerrit. Last comment on that patch was on May 11th and last patch work was on March 4th (6,5 months ago).
