What I'm looking for is hopefully possible. When using MS Excel and you click inside a cell that has a lot of information in it (ie. notes) the formula bar shows the entire contents of the cell. The information is word wrapped in the formula bar to expand to how ever many rows it needs to display the entire contents. In Calc, this isn't possible. When you click on the cell, the formula bar only shows the information that will fit on the screen. You have to click into the formula bar and arrow to the right to read everything.

Is it possible to change the formula bar so it will word wrap?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Ctrl+F2 shows your formula in a dialog.
