When using a formula as condition, the relative references in the 
formula are based on the address of the current cell. It would be nice, 
if this base address is shown in the dialog. I know, that I can drag the 
dialog beside and look where the cell cursor actual is, but that does 
not catch the case, where I think, the cursor is at the right place but 
actual is not. That can happen easily, when you mark a range for setting 
a condition, where it makes a difference whether you mark up- or downwards.

When you copy a condition to a new place, which has a formula with 
references, it might happen, that the reference does not exist. 
Currently it is replaced with #REF, so that the original information is 
lost. I would like, that the original reference is kept and the error is 
indicated in another way, for example setting the field background to 
light red and the font style in the field to italic.

Kind regards
