    You can also very easily just type "=" in the cell. So if you had a cell that was 3 but wanted to add 1+2 it would be "=1+2" in the cell

    The problem with this tool is that it adds all the digits. The problem is 125 + 2 is not 127. The tool would add it as 1 + 2 + 5 + 2. Not sure how this is useful to someone that needs to add all the numbers. Even in the example it does not make sense or seem practical. Did I miss something?
