And this one should be sent in plain text: This could be a Calc quirk or the correct expected behaviour, I'm not a power user, and this is not drama for me either.

With a spreadsheet A1=1, B1=2, C1="=A1+B1"
_Example 1) In Excel 2003, where "|" is the cursor position in the formula "=A1+B|1", click on any other other cell and the cursor focus moves away leaving the formula unchanged. I like this behaviour. Example 2) If you position the cursor as follows: "=A1+|B1", then click on any other cell (e.g. C6) Excel inserts that cell reference "=A1+C6|B1", this allows you to enter logic etc, but just pressing Enter breaks the formula, a bit yucky.

Behaviour in LibreOffice 4.4-8 from Collabora is the same as the 2nd example above irrespective of where the cursor is positioned._
Qu) Is there any chance of adopting the behaviour of Example 1?
I think adopting the resulting behaviour of example 1 for example 2 would be wrong as there would be loss of work if you're experimenting trying to do a formula but are getting the syntax wrong. Unless it is clever enough to detect that someone simply clicked on another cell by mistake. The Escape key is of course a good backout. But right click does nothing in either program, perhaps a right click could do Esc+change focus.
