Why is there no way to disable Date Recognition in Libreoffice Calc?
Out of all of my friends who used Open Office with me, and who now use Libre Office, I don’t know of a single one who has ever wanted to use the date function. I know because I asked.
Every one of them has had trouble with Calc reformatting their data to dates (which are not as easy to fix as text entries, by any means) while they were attempting to work.
It seems strange to me that this feature is even on by default (as opposed to off by default) but what’s even worse is that there is literally no way to disable this in the options menu; rather, it has to be done on a per-cell basis.
it is extremely disruptive to the workflow of myself and practically every Calc user I know.
I realize there are workarounds, and I don’t need them because I know them and I have to use them almost every day.
What is the reasoning behind this design choice? Is something being done?
