Please change the tooltip "function" in "formula" when mouse over "=" in formula bar. Actually I can also write =2+3 which is not a function, but just a formula.
Good point, I do agree.
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I could reproduce this.
ux-team: any thoughts?
Agree, confirmed in Kubuntu 16.04 version 126.96.36.199 Build ID 1:5.1.2-0ubuntu1
We're replacing our use of the 'ux-advise' component with a keyword:
Component -> LibreOffice
Add Keyword: needsUXEval
Seems like a one-liner to fix, as long as we have agreement on the change.

Bike shedding to me but Wikipedia adopts the math talk with 'formula' for '=4/3*pi()*r³' and leaves the tech talk 'function' for informatics. So +1 for the change.And let's invite Sophie to the party.
The toggle action of the button "composes" the formula OR "accepts" the formula and evaluates.
So while the formula is composed of functions, cell ranges, and static values, labeling it "Function" in the tooltip is not correct.
Action "Compose" would be more correct--matched with the "Accept" or "Cancel" button widgets, but "Formula" IS a better tooltip than "Function".
If not change "Function" -> "Compose", then "Function" -> "Formula" is acceptable.
Hi, I agree with Stuart analysis, but might be difficult to understand for average users, Compose is not part of the general vocabulary while Formula is, so voting for Formula :-) Sophie
You can enter a formula expression when clicking that button as it does nothing else than only starting a cell edit with an equal sign character, so Formula is fine.
Compose is without any meaning to not so adept users.
Patch is in.
