Is it possible to use the replace function on cells that have content in different formats like subset, bold, some greek letters etc. without flattening the whole formatting.
For example:
I have cells including chemical formulas. If I want to change the font type all subset and all greek letters will be converted to plain normal style. How can I preserve the cell formats? This is a problem that I have with every program I know including Excel. I do not want to make my table as a writer table because I need the calc features in other cells of this spreadsheet. I think it would be a big advantage if OO could implement this feature since it should not be difficult to obtain. After all in OOwriter this works of course.

thx a lot

Try an enhancement request issue to www.openoffice.org.
The problem would not occur if the text object in calc was implemented in the same way as the text object in writer ... and why not???
