Calculating and Pasting the Result of a Formula in a Text Document

If your text already contains a formula, for example "12+24*2", LibreOffice can calculate, and then paste the result of the formula in your document, without using the \<emph\>Formula Bar\</emph\>.

  1. Select the formula in the text. The formula can only contain numbers and operators and cannot contain spaces.

  2. Choose Tools - Calculate, or press +Plus Sign (+).

  3. Place the cursor where you want to insert the result of the formula, and then choose Edit - Paste, or press +V.
    The selected formula is replaced by the result.
