I don't remember whether there is a simple keyboard shortcut to 
simultaneously insert the same value/formula in multiple cells in 
I'd like to clarify the above paragraph. One thing would be to insert 
"the same" value/formula simultaneously in multiple cells. A more 
powerful keyboard shortcut would be to:

1_ Select a range of cells;
2_ Type in a formula;
3_ Press a combination of keys that would:
3.1_ insert the typed in value/formula in the first cell of the 
selected range, and then;
3.2_ would "extend", or "fill in", or "copy+paste" the first cell to 
the rest of the cells in the selected range.

If the typed in formula would be "=A1+1" (without quotation marks), 
A_ the "same formula" would mean the _exact_ same formula, as if it 
would be copying the content of the cell (as oppose to copying the 
first "cell"; or
B_ copying the first formula while respecting relative references too 
(e.g. "=A2+1" ; "=A3+1"; ... )

Whether case "B" would also copy the entire first cell (including 
formatting) into the rest of the selected range would be something to 
consider if/when such shortcut gets to be considered for development 
in Calc.

And that shortcut is [alt]+[enter], as Regina mentioned (thanks) in a 
prior email in this topic thread.

From the useful:


To fill a selected cell range with the formula that you entered on 
the Input line, press Alt+Enter.

So instead of:

A1 => 1965 [Enter]
B1:AX1 => formula(=A1+1) [Control+Enter]

in Calc you do:

A1 => 1965 [Enter]
B1:AX1 => formula(=A1+1) [Alt+Enter]

BTW, there is a _very limited_ document regarding LibreOffice and 
MSOffice (including Calc and Excel):
