I am running Libreoffice Calc under Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon on a 4GB RAM Intel i3 machine. When “Show Formula” is checked, the formuala appears, but not the result. Unchecked, I see the result. As expected.


I also run LibreOffice for Windows in a Windows XP virtual machine. In this case, when Show Formula is checked, l get the result. When it is NOT checked, all I see is the formula.

Is this a bug or a feature?
