LO v5.0.0.5 from on Xubuntu 14.04

On the two multi-tab spreadsheets that I use, none of the formulas in one of the tabs shows formula references in color when I press F2. It's just the formula in B&W in the cell. All other tabs work as expected.

Is this a bug or am I misconfiguring something?

Hi RonJohn63

LO-5 is from LibreOffice Fresh & as such may be buggy. You need to get used to using Bugzilla (or the Bug Assistant).

The alternative is to use LibreOffice Still (more stable, less exciting).
