+NAME Ronnie The Bonnie +CONTACT firstname.lastname@example.org +CATEGORY (select one or more from below) editing +SCOPE (select one or more from below) openFormula +USE CASE all where openFormula is used +DESCRIPTION Making '=' mandatory for formula. It's very strange that ODF OpenFormula does not mandates the equal sign in the beginning of a formula. >In math formulas are naturally of the form y = f(x) with the equal sign. >Mostly everybody uses the '=' for saying something is a formula in spreadsheets. >All the major spreadsheet applications need it anyway. >It makes it possible to distinguish between textual description of formula in spreadsheets and actual formulas. Many people use the difference between '=' and no '=' to show the formula they use. To document their spreadsheet. >There is no reason not to do it. Please make it a must, mandatory that an application must do equal signs in order to be compliant with OpenFormula.
