Thanks for that wonderfully detailed and explicit response. I hope it is useful for others, in the future, who may find it through a search of the forum.

Unfortunately, to my original request for help, Brian Barker responded, but to ME ONLY. I didn't notice this, and responded to him, also backchannel, at which point the matter was resolved, as I reported that my problem had just vanished. I could not easily account for this, but my first speculation was that it was "pilot error".

Now, here's my point: responses to requests for help which are made backchannel are necessarily out of the public eye, which in this case led to Alex's very nice response, days later, to a problem which no longer existed.

So...may I strongly suggest that we keep discussion IN THE COMMUNITY so that all may benefit?

Just makes sense, to me. We come here for group discussion. Why defeat that purpose?

Perhaps a bit more detail would be useful can you give us the steps that you are following.

The steps below would change the font colour of all selected cells that contains the number 0 to 
the same as the white background, i.e. they become invisible.

      *  Select cells to conditionally format
      *  Format -> Conditonal Formatting -> Condition

Conditional Formatting dialog appears
      *  Change condition 1 to [Cell Value is] [Equal to] [0]
      *  Appply style [New Style]

Cell Style dialogue appears
      *  Click on Font Effects Tab
      *  In [Font Colour] drop down menu selected white
      *  Push the [OK] button
Returns to Conditional Formatting dialog
      *  Push the [OK] button
Returns to the sheet with selected cells formatted

I'm using LO, on Kubuntu Linux 13.10

I just noticed that a big spreadsheet which has a number cells with a
background whose color depends on the value of integer in the cell is
all wrong. I tried resetting - recreating - the conditional formatting.
It just doesn't do anything.

The number in the cell is calculated by a formula. I do have
autocalculate turned on. Pressing F-9 does not affect the conditional
formatting (just a while grab I tried).

Any ideas about what's wrong? Is this a known bug for this version?
