"Show references in color" sometimes broken


LO v5.0.0.5 from libreoffice.org on Xubuntu 14.04

On the two multi-tab spreadsheets that I use, none of the formulas in one of the tabs shows formula references in color when I press F2. It’s just the formula in B&W in the cell. All other tabs work as expected.

Is this a bug or am I misconfiguring something?


Upgrade to with sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa and sudo aptitude update || sudo apt-get update and sudo aptitude full-upgrade || sudo apt-get upgrade !

Hi RonJohn63

LO-5 is from LibreOffice Fresh & as such may be buggy. You need to get used to using Bugzilla (or the Bug Assistant).

The alternative is to use LibreOffice Still (more stable, less exciting).

If this helps then please tick the answer (:heavy_check_mark:)

There is an option: Tools Options Calc View Show references in color
