Re: Conditional formatting


I understand.  It's just that I'm trying to port a
project into gnumeric, but it's heavily dependent on
conditional formatting, so that's not possible at
present.  That's the way the cookie crumbles, I guess.

One question I forgot to ask in the previous message
was, how do you get RTF into a cell?  I've tried
copying and pasting to no avail.  I figured that
perhaps if I could get RTF into a cell, I could figure
out a way to manipulate it in the way I mentioned.

To that end, I've
been scribbling down what at my company we call an

still needs some work,
but I plan to share it with the group and get input.

I've read a few of the discussions on conditional
formatting, but I haven't seen one possible route
solving this puzzle mentioned.

If cells can contain RTF, why not just make it
possible to insert formatting codes (eg \b{} \i{})
into an RTF cell?  That is, if you want a cell to
display the value in A1, and make it bold if it's
greater than 10, you could use


I'm sure I might be overlooking some reason why
is impractical or impossible, but I just wanted to
make sure.
