I assume you're referring to the "input line" (where you can type
formulas etc.) in Calc?

Being another one who avoids the mouse whenever possible, I'd never
noticed that. You're right, there's no right-click context menu for that
box, at least in the couple of versions I've checked (4.0.4 and 4.2.0).

no one has ever asked, or is there a technical reason?

I just went to report this on the bug tracker, and found it's already

Doesn't seem to be considered a high priority though, so you might want
to add a comment there to explain how it's affecting you.

In the meantime, a possible workaround is to edit in the cell (where you
can right-click and paste) rather than using the input line, but you may
not find that so convenient anyway.


Thanks for all of the input. As long as its in the pipeline, not a problem. re: alternatives, this is how I use it-might apply to others:
Pay credit card on line
Copy verification number from web site
paste verification number to an empty cell
change font from not free sans to free sans
copy updated cell with verification number
(cannot add to exiting cell with payment description without deleting existing data)
click on cell where verification number will be appended to description
click on input line
go to Edit->Paste to paste verification number to cell data
press enter
empty cell with verification number only

I agree-it's not a big deal-there are more important issues.

Thanks to all,
