I think it would be good, and useful, if it was possible to do a graph, with the y value defined as a function of x. The user gives the range of x values that s/he wants to graph. This feature would be most (only?) useful in an XY graph. How I envision this working, is if you select two cells, (e.g. A1 and B1), A1 will contain a constant, and B1 will contain a function of A1 (e.g. =A1*2+4). A dialogue will ask the user for the min or max values of x (A1) to graph. Maybe with an 'auto' checkbox too. Clicking "Create" will then make an X-Y graph of this formula. I realise that one can graph this manually, by Filling A1 and B1 downwards, then graphing the resulting values, but I don't think it's as flexible. This feature would be useful for Maths, also economics and other disciplines, it acts as a graphical substitute for Goal Seek, (and it can find maxima and minima on a graph). thanks :)

This sounds interesting therefore I would like to keep it in mind. But as there does exist another way to get the same result I lower the prio.
