--- Comment #9 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
No, confirm the correct normal behavior as in comment 2 and comment 3--user
must exit from data entry mode and enter data edit mode.

During data entry the default keyboard cursor movement (L,R,U,D) is to
reposition cell focus.

Simply put, an edit cursor is not available until one toggles from data
**entry** mode into data **edit** mode using the <F2> key--or the <Enter> key
if that option is set from Tools -> Options.

Stateful data entry is the norm for all spreadsheet programs I'm familiar with:
AOO and OOo, Gnumeric, MS Excel, IBM Symphony. Have to check Apple's Numbers,
but think there as well.

Will add to UX-advise/Design meeting agenda, but will recommend close
wontfix--as this is a request for non-normative behavior.
