Larger / Separate formula window

#1

The inline formula editing is nice but is limited as which you have a few lines it becomes unusable - maybe just my long/bad formulas but is becoming a right PITA :frowning:

@Phil_White I’ve encountered this one or two with monster formulas. I’d recommend unrolling your formulas into multiple columns. This also improves performance: if you have multiple columns performing similar calculations (e.g. the same filter except for one), it reduces the number/size of recalculations you’ll have to do.

Yeah, this is vital. Especially, if there could be some way to introduce intermediate values rather than building one enormous formula.

Obviously, you could create a Section with multiple smaller chunks of the formula, and then just look up the result from there, but it seems like there is a benefit to having the formula right there in the sheet you’re working on, and having all the preceding formulas readable at once.

I would like an inverse formula tool, where I could see what the intermediate values of my formula is at every step along the way.
