I tried submitting a problem report once. I don’t remember exactly what it was anymore, but I sure learned to stay away from that bugtracker. I wasted a lot of time. As I remember it, I stated the problem and then was asked to re-state it. I re-stated it and someone reproduced it. A couple of years later I got a notice that it had been cancelled because I had not provided additional information. Hah! Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.
I think LibreOffice and OpenOffice are very good software designed by hobbyists who don’t always understand the “markets” that would like to use their software. The developers work on what they want to work on and prioritize their work based on their interests, not on the needs of their customers. I think this is very reasonable and I don’t blame them a bit. I do not like people telling me how to pursue my hobbies, either. But software development isn’t my hobby. I can’t fix this problem myself and I doubt that any of the developers have ever used this function on their calculator even if they have it. So the same thing will probably happen as happened the last time. Time will be wasted, time will pass, and the request will go nowhere.
Anyway, my desktop accounting calculator has this very basic functionality. Any software that cannot do it isn’t suitable for keeping extensive financial records on. Little onsy-twosy spreadsheets, fine, but not large ones with itemized expenses for larger projects spread over different asset and expense categories. So I’ll look around at the other spreadsheet out there and see if any of them can do it.
