Hello I am using the NumberText addon to convert a number to a text (12 -> twelve for example).
the function to do this is MONEYTEXT(12)

It works correctly if I write =MONEYTEXT(12) in a cell.
but when I save, close and open again,
the formula in the cell transformed to : =org.numbertext.moneytext(12)
and does not work anymore (it shows "#NAME?")
It works fine if I put moneytext(12) back
Did I miss something in the interpretation of formulas ?
of the use for addon functions ?
Thanks for any help

Are you using the native file format to save?

It is right for me in and, show =org.numbertext.moneytext() open in LibreOffice-dev (master MinGW) without the extension installed.

so this means that, when reopening the file, LO does not find the extension so puts it : org.numbertext.moneytext() (so the cell reads "#NAME?"), then load the extension which allows the fact that, when I type again =MONEYTEXT(12) it works ?

I am running v

When I save it as a M$ ".xlsx", I get this problem.

Saving it as a ".ods" file, it goes away.
