By golly, you got it in one!
There still seems to be a bug in 188.8.131.52 in that entering a formula
into a cell formatted as text gives you a blank cell until you make
a change to the spreadsheet (add a column, change the cell format,
something like that), and then like magic the formula value suddenly
appears in the cell.
Is this just a display problem? What happens, for example, if you
minimise and then restore the Calc window: does that do anything?
I see that preceding formulae with "'" makes the "'" appear in the
cell, irrespective of the cell format. Seems this is no longer a
text mark character. I'm sure it used to be, or is in Excel, as I've
used it before.
Surely it still works? There are a couple of points that may be
confusing you here.
o If you have custom ("smart") quotes set in your AutoCorrect
options, the apostrophe you type will be converted into an open
single quote and will not fulfil its intended function. To correct
this, either disable custom quotes or - more easily - just go to Edit
| Undo (or Ctrl+Z) immediately after typing the apostrophe: this will
undo the autocorrection to leave the intended apostrophe.
o If you have already managed to enter something starting with an
apostrophe or open quote in a cell in the same column, Calc may offer
you suggested input, and you may need additional presses of Ctrl+Z to
return to the plain apostrophe you need before typing the real cell
contents you require.
I trust this helps.
