Description Samuel Mehrbrodt (CIB) 2016-05-06 09:53:18 UTC
1. Open the multiline input in calc
2. Save document & close calc
3. reopen document

The multiline input is closed again. Its state should be stored in the document (how many lines are shown in the multiline input) and restored when reopening.

I`m not sure it's always useful.

The Formula Bar will be either a single line, or can be toggled to multi-line mode with the count of lines selected by user. That line count will persist during a calc session--but on restart the default single line is reused, and the line count for multi-line is reset to its default height.

Certainly not always. It really depends what you do with your spreadsheet. I use it to prepare text database for language learning. Formula Bar for me is just a preview of cell content. And it would really make my work a lot easier if I could have fixed line state after Calc restart.

That is the best solution.
