I would like a cell to flash a different color to draw attention to it. Is this possible?

Not formatting the text, but the effect can be achieved with a Text box over the cell with blinking text "████" full block (U+2588) characters with the same color than the text in the cell, anchoring the text box to the cell.

Attached a sample file C:\fakepath\Calc_SimulateBlinkText.ods

This worked for my application! I appreciate the answer so quickly. I wish there was some way to do the same with an actual cell that automatically updates as data is inserted - but I'll take what I can get for now.

Thanks again!
