Description Andrew Holbrook 2015-02-07 16:42:54 UTC
When clicking a cell and typing "=33325/3", it gives "8.333333". Dividing by "33" also seems to be wrong.

Hello Andrew,

Thank you for reporting the bug. Can you see if bug 78503 is similar to your problem so that I can mark your report as a duplicate of it? (Later bugs are generally marked as duplicates of earlier bugs).
Comment 2 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2015-02-07 18:00:19 UTC
Correct result is 11108,3333333333 (LibreOffice, so 4 first digits are missing or hidden.

Set status to NEEDINFO. Please set it back to UNCONFIRMED once you have provided information requested in comment #1

Best regards. JBF

Closing as duplicate. Info from user: It seems to be hiding the first few digits. It did this when “Use printer metrics for text formatting” was disabled, then enabling it seems to have fixed the issue.
