--- Comment #1 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
Adding the "Input Line" button from the Application category of customizing a
toolbar simply provides a movement button to position program focus into the
Formula Bar's Input Line. It is not intended to create a new instance of the
formula input widget. Not a bug.

However, you can already hide the Formula Bar (which is *not* a simple button
toolbar and so doesn't have button customization of other toolbars) and then
insert the button for the "Function" wizard. It is a pop-out dialog of course
unlike the formula bar--but provides all the same integrated functions for
manipulating cell/sheet formulas.

It can be used without a button, reachable with the Calc short-cut of
<ctrl>+F2, but if you want a toolbar button...

As an enhancement, I'm not sure providing a toolbar widget for just the Input
Line part of the Formula Bar/Function wizard for use in other toolbar
customization makes any sense. Especially as you can already directly enter the
simple formula the Input Line into the target cell, or review it graphically
with a selection of the cell--what is gained by having the Input Line show in a
toolbar other than the hiding the Formula Bar?
