Why is everyone straying away from the fact that there is a simple
extension developed by Cor (one of our brilliant devs) which
accomplishes all of this? Just curious if there's a benefit to doing
these formula techniques instead of just pushing a button on a nice gui
I could ask you the same type of question regarding "paste special +
multiply by 1" method.

A user might not know of the extension, or about any extension for
that matter. A user might not use extensions, ever. Why would anyone
need to search, install and use an extension, when other spreadsheet
tools can apply a well-known "multiply by 1" method?

In other words, if very simple spreadsheet tools (not just Excel) can
use a very simple and well-known method, perhaps instead of thinking
of how to incorporate the CT2N extension into the core in Calc, the
same time could be invested to make Calc work "as expected" with
"paste special"?

To be clear, I'm not complaining, just posting my thoughts.


Thoughts are always appreciated in our community :-D
