Hi, I would like to request change for a feature in you're spreadsheet program. 
There is the way to enter a formula into a text field and 'comment it out' using
an apostrophe. However, the apostrophe then disappears and there is no way to
tell after why the formula isn't working. The only way to remove the apostrophe
is by putting the cursor in the first position and pressing backspace. But as
mentioned the apostrophe is not visible.
This could lead to many hours of confusion. Any other spreadsheet programs that
I used (Excel, Gnumeric, Kspread, Google Betta) does not do this.
Thank you,
