Gnumeric is another free software spreadsheet that has conditional

Sometimes it comes installed.

WPS has installer to Ubuntu at least.
Some RPMs and tar also.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Re: Calc AutoCalculate

Hi James,

sorry but I think not a good news.

[Thank you for those links. I'm not sure how much they apply to the problem I'm encountering but 
they are certainly interesting.

I'm not interested in migrating to Excel under any conceivable circumstance. I don't even want to 
use WPS (the Chinese clone of Excel) though that might be an answer in terms of performance. :(

Does anyone know whether WPS can be run via Wine on Linux? I know it does not play fair with LO on 
Windows. I don't think programs on Linux through Wine can override system settings. As long as I 
could control the software update process I think I might trust WPS if it were running on Linux. -- 

Maybe the problem is in relation with your formulas in the conditional format, using functions 
inside CF makes it very slow. I think specially with
the STYLE() function.

[Thank you Miguel.

I do not use _any_ functions in my very simplistic conditional formatting. I have six custom styles 
defined that differ from the default style in terms only of their background color. They apply to 
the range Sheet1.AH3:AJ2870. They are activated by six conditions as follows

Condition 1: Formula is $Sheet2.$AP3=1
Condition 2: Formula is $Sheet2.$AP3=2
Condition 6: Formula is $Sheet2.$AP3=6

This color codes the background in columns AH through AJ on the first sheet based on any of six 
specific values or none of them in column AP on the second sheet. Unchecking AutoCalculate turns 
off this color coding but does not streamline data entry which is taking place in columns AH 
through AJ on the first sheet. IOW, unchecking AutoCalculate not only fails to accelerate data 
entry but it also hides visual clues as to what data is supposed to be entered. -- jl]

Miguel Ángel.
