currently I have to reenter all contents of the cell, can't edit the contents that are already there.

Maybe I don't understand your problem. But selecting a cell in Calc show on the input line the value or formula. Select the "input line" to edit the value or formula. You cannot edit a cell at the cell itself. The input line is just above the column labels (C, D, F etc)

EXCELLENT! That's what I'm missing. No input line and can't find where to add it.

OK, I found where to add input line but all it does is add a button to the menu but no text box.
