I have set a condition for a range of cells in a column - highlight when cell value = MIN(X1:X12). Autocalculate is turned on. The program highlights the minimum value and two other values. If I change the condition to highlight when cell value =MAX(X1:X12), two non-adjacent cells are highlighted. The range is set correctly. Here is an example of what I get: 5242.56 6347.66 7452.76 8557.86 9662.96 10768.06 9591.48 10696.58 11801.68 2169.78 3274.88 4379.98 Makes no sense to me. This happens with LibreCalc running on Ubuntu 16.04 or Windows 7.

Found the answer!! I need to use absolute cell references, so rather than MIN(X1:X12) the condition should be set to MIN($X$1:$X$12). Not sure why this is so, but it works.
