Description Douglas Caixeta 2009-03-22 15:12:01 EDT
Description of problem:
On openoffice Calc the colors do not appear into the function, while editing it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Open an new worksheet on Calc. In one cell type: =C2+C3 <enter>. Go to this cell again and press F2. Cell C2 and C3 are blue and red, but the formulation is black, so what is the point of using colors?

Actual results:
Black color on formulation while editing

Expected results:
Colors like the ones that are showed on the cells

This bug occurs only on openOffice for Fedora. I tested on openoffice for Windows and it works perfectly.

Red Hat reviews and scrubs its code for intellectual property issues. Our
approach has always been conservative, i.e., if there is any question, resolve
the issue or remove the code.  Red Hat recently implemented a number of changes
in its distribution of OpenOffice to address such issues.  These changes should
not be construed as implying any immediate intellectual property problem;
rather, they have been implemented to assure that no such immediate problems
arise. While implementing these changes in our own distribution of OpenOffice,
we have also made them available upstream to the OpenOffice project.
