Frame around reference cell not visible during formula editing
If a formula contains more then one references to the same cell, coloured frame around that cell is not visible or selectable by cursor during editing of formula, if one reference is moved to another cell by cursor. So it is necessary to enter formula several times to move all references. In case of long Array formulas it is really inconvenient and it's very easy to make mistakes, because not all references are visible.
Screen-shot of reference cell without coloured frame is attached to the report
The way to reproduce:
1. Open attached file.
2. Select formula in D1 by double click
3. Move cursor to B1 cell
4. Press left mouse button over B1 cell and move coloured frame to C1
5. Release left mouse button.
Normally A1, B1 and C1 should have coloured frames at a point 5, but only A1 and C1 have coloured frame. If entering formula one more time, all reference cells have frames around.
It is really problematic bug, when complicate formulas have to be edited.

Sample formula of 2 references to the same cell
I can confirm with Version: 220.127.116.11.alpha0+

New release of 4.4.2 still have this problem. It seems to be related to a new feature - the same colour to all references to particular cell. To me it's not valuable, therefore I would be happy with previous status, because it is now really terribly with long formula editing.
Still in 18.104.22.168. It seems that this regression is considered to be a feature :) It is really annoying and I didn't find any workaround for that to be able to move several references to the same cell in formula without entering formula several times.
I would be very thankful also for any workaround, because now it is a mess in editing complex formulas.

Don't have 4.4.x bersion for testing. Did you confirm that 4.4.3 still reproduce the bug?

Sorry, it is fixed!
I messed up versions. I opened it in 126.96.36.199 instead of 188.8.131.52. In 184.108.40.206 everything is fine.
Thank you for great work!
