Issue description
in cell a1 enter: =a2+a3
now, on cell a1 press {f2}, and use your {left} and {right} arrow-keys to go
throug the formula.
still in the formula press {f2} again. now, when using the arrow-keys you point
to an other cell.
It would be a good idea to indicate the inputmode on the statusbar (just like
the {insert} button

Not a defect but an enhancement. Therefore re-assigned to requirements 
Comment 4 norbert2 2007-10-21 19:38:08 UTC
In Calc I also miss information if a filter (for example auto filter) is applied.

These are the two infos I miss in Calc which are diaplayed by Excel in the
status bar.

So I have changed the summary.

If other users miss other information in the status bar, please enter them in
this  issue.

Bug 121750 is NOT a duplicate of this bug. They are two completely different things.

Still Reproducible with "AOO 4.0.1   – German UI / German locale  [Rev. 1524958 2013-09-20 11:40:29]" on  German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", “historic”  4.0  User Profile used for all  predecessor versions:

1. From AOO Strt Center open attached sample66663.ods
2. Double click C5
   > Formula will be shown in C5 instead of results
3. Click in front of A2
   > Caret flashing after "+" before "A2"
4. <arrowright><arrowleft>
   > Caret at the same position as after step 3, but formula no longer colored,
     but black
     As you see Arrow keys move caret within formula
5. <f2>
   > it seems nothing has changed?
6. <arrowright><arrowleft>
   > different to step 4, now cell names like "D5" will be inserted into 
     formula by moving cell cursor

Reporter's intention is to show in what of both possible modes "Insert" or "Edit" (I do not know whether these names are correct) sheet editing is. In OOo there is no way to see in what mode you are before you try.

Additional information:
(a) Competitors
(a1) Excel 2010: shows the current mode at the left end of the status bar
(a2) Softmaker FreeOffice: <f2> does not toggle, I do not know how to 
     get similar situation
(a3) LibO4.2: Still the same as AOO
(b) Still reproducible with AOO 4.1.0-dev, but because of incomplete
    LCo selector (Bug 123063) no correct information can be left
