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.
Live color highlighting for all cells referenced in another cell.
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.
Joel, thanks for making me a CC of this bug. I'll surely look into it :)
Can you also look at this bug (may be related)?
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?
