    This is the most awaited feature ever. The only thing that still makes Libre/Open Office Calc better. Can't live without Ctrl + A! The work goes so slow without it.

    So far the score is Users: 4, Dan: 0. I will also add that Ctrl+A doesn't work in a cell, in a formula bar, or anywhere that cell references are edited (even after pressing F2 to get arrow key functionality while editing).
    Users:5, Dan: 0. Cheers.

    Dear Dan,
    please try editing a cell (or even opening a search (and replace) window) and then pressing Ctrl + A to select all text. It doesn't (and did never, afaik) work.
    This gets me all the time and would be a huuuuge improvement.

    Is NOT supported for text editing within a cell. This has been supported in Google Docs for ages and the issue ages back 5+ years in Excel. Ctrl+backspace also does not work when editing text in a cell.

    I would like to submit a practical idea for the selection of the contents of a cell in edition mode.

    I use Google Sheets and Excel for my work.
    Google Sheets allows the selection of the totality of the contents in a cell with CTRL+A what Excel does not propose.

    It would be great of being able to do it.
