xls cells containing reference to a translated cell not updated, even after recalc ?

Hello,

Please see the attached example, i translate cells in column A. Cells in column D contain simply references to column A cells.

But these cells in column D are not updated ? (and excel is showing an “unprotected formula” green triangle)

(with okapi 1.43)

    Partial Solution : In fact a F9 does not refresh the formulas (probably because XLS thinks there is nothing to recalc as the file has been updated from behind the scene via OKAPI)…

    BUT …on Mac , a Fn-Control-Option-F9 does a full recalc and update the cells (maybe the equivalent on PC is ctrl-alt-F9? )

    Is it possible for okapi to activate the flag “something has been modified” in the file? To avoid to force the user finding this complex key combination to update…. (a very frustrating experience since we all know F9 but who knows the Fn-Control-Option-F9 ??)?

    ah ! SUGGESTED SOLUTION WHICH FORCES THE FULL RECALC WHEN THE FILE IS OPENED:

    in “xl/workbook.xml“ modify the “CalcPr” tag, add these attributes : <calcPr fullCalcOnLoad="1" calcCompleted="0" forceFullCalc="1" />

    I tested with the above files, and it WORKS, can this be implemented please ?
