Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-06-24 07:46:53 UTC
It would be nice to be able to right-click in the input line and be able to cut, copy, paste, and format cell, like in Kingsoft Spreadsheet and Excel.

This is what it look like in Microsoft Office 2010. When right click in the formula bar, it shows a dialog allowing you to copy, paste, format cells, etc.

Seems a good idea, set to NEW.

Yes, this is something I really need too. No just due to the fact I'm a 15 year Excel user. It's just logical to have text-boxes like the Input Line right-clickable.

CCing ux-advise if they have any suggestions for this enhancement.

Similar to bug 68500.

Such context menu exists for the input line for a formula in a Writer table. Such context menu should contain "insert special character" same as in Writer.

I second this request.
