Many thanks to you! The Calc guide is really needed!

You can look at the structure of the Writer guide to get a general idea.
The guide should be "progressive", starting with a general description (UI
elements, the sidebar, etc.), up to the more complex arguments (conditional
formatting, RegExp on formulas, etc.). The idea is to refers whenever it's
possible to existing material: for example, describing the Calc UI, refers
to the general UI description at the beginning of the guide.

Other than that, I cannot tell you (I do not use Calc that much), but if
you propose the structure of what you want to write, other list members
will help you to refine it.

Thanks again for starting this important work!
