Test file

On large spreadsheets, when I want to copy formula to large number of cell, it would be good if scrooling was increasing in speed as I drag cell.

Open test file. I just entered number in first 3000 rows of A column. In cell B1 you will find simple formula.
Grab cell B1 by bottom right corner and drag it all the way to B3000.

Calc in scrooling by constant speed, not too slow, not too fast.

Longer you hold it, faster should Calc scrool it, with some maximum speed so it doesn't go speed of light on me. :) This is default behaviour in Excel, that's why I noticed this in Calc when I switched.
Excel gets to row 3000 much faster then Calc.

Sounds reasonable.
Yet, for now you can simply use "shift-click target cell, Ctrl-D (fill down)", right?
Comment 2 Mikeyy - L10n HR 2015-03-06 12:12:25 UTC
Yes you can. You can also copy cell, SHIFT + click last one, paste.
But that's not dragging cell down.

Anyway, it's an enhancement to think about if some dev think it's worth it.
Most people don't know about CTRL + D. I use excel and calc for 10 years and still didn't develop habbit of using CTRL+D (and I know it exists).
