I did not test it there but we will need more time. The old dialog
just added the name to a list and we now need to create an entry from
name and scope. The formula calculation is only done for visible
cells. I think 1000 range names are already an extreme example and
since it works quite nice there we can use this approach.

Interesting. I'll try that.
