I've been using gnumeric via "easy debian" and this will make life much easier.

I like cake.

no more annoying toolbars that had to be toggled on-off-on go get rid of.
arrowkeys to change cells and direct input in the cells. (without having t tap the textbox)

again: GREAT!!!

Nice, just updated and has a cleaner interface. It crashed while opening an excel sheet that had pivot tables. Stopped crashing after the pivot table was removed.

Tomasz (and also Thomas), looks like you really worked on the issues I wrote down into the comments section of package version 1.10.2 ...

Now there is a bugtracker link, the toolbars show up as expected and also the UI is much cleaner than before. No need for my special keymap with a fullscreen key on my N900. Now I have changed from 1.8.3 to 1.10.* in extras-devel at last.

Well, the LP solvers glpk and lp_solve are still missing (as they seem to be external dependencies since some versions ago), but who wants to solve LPs on a mobile device anyway!

Keep up the good work!

Any chance of changing this to a different key combo? Reason is that CTRL-Space is used for toggling the input method in MSCIM. Maybe SHIFT-Space?

Anyway thanks for the update - it fixed the bug which caused gnumeric to crash out whenever you tried to format a cell.

Many thanks for your work on this. I'm just wondering why you chose double-tap for these two things rather than a long-press?

This is a very nice package that has many useful features for
representing data. Thank you for your efforts. I did notice a few
problems when trying to make a graph. First, I am unable to modify
the X or Y axis label because the region on the bottom of the screen
where you would enter changes to Font and Style is out of reach of
the stylus.

Another thing is that once you do make a graph, so that it now
appears on the sheet, the "Ctrl+Space - toggle full screen mode
on/off" does not work.
