Hi all,

Now, the bottleneck fdo#54498 has been fixed for LO 3.6.2, it is a great
step toward making LO 3.6 usable for production !

So I think it's time for developers to consider the severe UX issue we
have with the Edit dialog from manage screen in Format -> Conditional
Formatting -> Manage.
The problem has been described in fdo#54774, fdo#54940, and on QA and
UX-advise mailing-list. We had very few answers and only one developer
(Markus) point of view. So I decided to ask on developers ML as it is a
developer problem.

To make the story short, I think it is crucial to make the Edit dialog
from Format > CF > Manage > Button Edit to work exactly in the same way
as Format > CF > CF, regardless the constraints from using relative
My main argument is here :

This Manage dialog is very important as it gives a summary of all CF
defined in the current sheet. It is a long waited function for all
peoples who are using CF in their spreadsheets. So a big thank you to
Markus for that. But now it is important to not give a bad user
experience with this new great function.

If nothing is possible, I think the better thing to do is to remove the
button Edit from the Manage dialog.

Best regards.
JBF, irritating QA people.
