Running OpenSuse x64 42.2 Leap. After a number system/application update all my sheets have a auto-text format for all previously formatted number cells. I have un-installed libreOffice and all related dependencies. Then re-install through OpenSuse Yast. This installed the latest version. Sadly when I open any sheet, all cells that previously had a number are still formatted as text. Have deleted or turned off all macros that I can find. Nothing seems to change the automatic text formatting. It takes about 1.5 -2 seconds for the entered number to change to blue and control returned to the keyboard.
Any advice or ideas will be tried.
