Spreadsheet problem; typed formulas treated as static text (literals)
At some point the spreadsheet in Classic 5 has started misinterpreting my keyboard input of cell formulas — instead of accepting formulas as such, the "cell" gets defined as static text containing the formula. The problem occurs whether a formula is entered with an equals sign or not. Screenshot attached.
Using Classic 5.0.609.0-d on my Windows 7 laptop.
The spreadsheet is being used to define and organize objects to be displayed in the 3d view. Roughly 25 rows by 35 columns — a considerable number of graphics objects in 3d.
Entering/editing formulas had been working just fine, whether 1) typed directly in a cell, 2) typed into the spreadsheet formula bar, 3) by copy/paste from another cell, or 4) by fill down/fill right, etc., but none of these methods are working now.
However, it is still possible to type or paste a cell formula into the ggb input bar (e.g. C3 = C1 + C2). And I can still change a formula by editing the Definition field in properties or by editing in the Algebra View. But this makes for very tedious work, to say the least.
Curiously, this problem doesn't occur with all ggb files, but when I open the "problem" file with the online browser version, I get the same odd behavior. Am I dealing with some known settings, options, etc.? If it’s a heavier issue I can post files as needed.
