Re: Protecting Cells from accidental change

Hi Steve, This will probably NOT help you, but FWIW;(You probably know this already)
From the Help contents(in Windows version):
================Start Quote ==================
This tab allows you to see and change cell protection in imported Excel workbooks. Cell protection has no effect in Gnumeric: you can edit cells whether or not they are marked as protected. However, Gnumeric keeps the protection setting of imported Excel workbooks. If you later save your workbook in Excel format, Gnumeric will save the protection information too. For more information about cell protection in Excel, please refer to Excel documentation.
======================= end quote =================

I have just accidentally changed the values in some cells. It is OK because I noticed it and have back ups but I am concerned that I might make accidental changes to the spreadsheet and not notice.

My question is what is the best way for me to make certain cells less subject to accidental changes in future? It looks like gnumeric does not have a cell protection function but I was wondering if some validation might be applied which would make the cell(s) protected. The protection would need to allow the results of formulae in the cells to change but not the formulae themselves.

Would it be possible for every cell I have entered something into to then automatically be weakly protected ie. if the value is changed a pop up could say 'do you really want to change the value of this cell'?

Best wishes from Steve
