in LibreCalc I have many pages and columns of spreadsheet values using "currency-as-text" (all entries preceded by single quote) How do I convert these text entries to actual currency (leading single quote removed)? The format dialog options allow me to select the cell(s) but nothing happens when I ok the change to currency.
