Hey guys, just wondering how to copy/paste formulae in a writer table?

I would like the formula to "adapt" to the new location, as it would when copy/pasting "formula only" in Calc.

Seems only possible this way:

  • copy formula from edit line without =
  • Hit F2 key in another cell ( = shows) and paste

Send a feature request / bug report.

This tip is helpful, however I would like the formula to adapt to the new location, as it does when copy/pasting "formula only" in Calc e.g. if I copy the formula A1 + B1 into the next row down I want it to adapt to B1 + C1. The instructions you gave copies the exact same formula referring to the same cells; A1 + B1 when copy/pasted remains A1 + B1.
