what's the best way to insert long comments into calc? A floating
window that 
does not interfere with the spreadsheet itself would be best.
1. the built in commentary for cells seems to be buggy, sometimes
display corretly, cannot be resized... unusable for me if it's more
than a 
couple of words
2. merging cells is not what I want. Cannot really edit the box as if
it were 
a text box and resizing seems difficult
3. Supposedly there is a text box function, but whenever I click it
happens (insert -> text box)

I'm using LO 6.0.4.

Thanks for your help.
