Description mbackus 2005-10-08 17:48:13 UTC
When using the formula editor, the user should be given some sort of visual cue
that the box they clicked on (after inserting items with the "Selection" panel)
is actually selected.  As it stands now, after entering a formula using the
selection panel, it is easy for a user to click on a box and think assume that
it has been selected when in fact the cursor is merely before the box in the
command window.  This results in a garbled formula until the poor user realized
what is happening (if they are tech savy).  By simply bolding the selected box,
this issue could be resolved.

It sounds to me that it is already implemented in OOo 3.0.1
