I was just thinking that since Math is so simple to use and has a nice GUI, one could use it along with Calc to insert and/or edit the formulas. Sometimes one may have to use big equations with a lot of parentesis and even using that 'tree a-like' feature, which shows the dependencies between them, one can get confused. I think this happens because one has to enter the whole formula linearlly in the formula field. So I thought that maybe it would be usefull to have an integration between Math and Calc in such a way that one could write the formula in Math and paste/insert it directly in the formula field in Calc, this way one would be certain that the formula is correct because it can be easilly checked in Math. Maybe not all functions from Math are supported by Calc, but it would be good to have at least some functionality between them

Hi Bettina, I think such a feature is not really usefull but anyway it's your turn to decide about it. Frank

It would be very useful. I really miss it. If you can edit fomulas in Writer, why not in Calc, then?

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
