Editing The Content Of A Cell | LibreOffice Calc 5.2



Well, you might say, I have been using the Calc program for some time now, and I know how to edit the content of a cell. If you say so, I am not doubting you, but this does not mean you should not continue to read this post. Why? Because I this post, I am going to explain three different ways of editing the content of a cell, thus you might be using one of two of them, this does not means that you should not learn about the third one. So continue reading.





First Way: this is probably the most common way known and used by everyone. It is the double-click method.
So to edit the content of a cell in LibreOffice Calc 5.2, just double-click on the cell, then use the arrow keys in the keyboard or the mouse pointer to move the insertion point to where you want to add or remove the content of the cell.
Note that clicking a cell once will not make the cell editable, rather clicking a cell once is for selecting all the content of the cell.

Second Way: though this method is widely known, it is rely used. This method is the use of the formula bar to do the editing.
When you click on a cell once, the content of the cell will be displayed in the formula bar, thus you can use the formula bar to perform the editing and when you are done editing, all you need do is hit the Enter key in the keyboard of the Accept button of the formula bar.
Once done, the changes made in the formula bar will be displayed in the selected cell.

Third Way: this perhaps is known only by LibreOffice Calc professionals. It is the use of the F2 function key of the keyboard.
When you click on the cell you want to edit once, just hit the F2 function key in the keyboard and the cell will be enabled for editing. Then you can use either the arrow keys in the keyboard or the mouse pointer to move the insertion point to when you wan to perform the editing.
