Excuse me?

"Autofill in calc doesn't work as Excel. In excel if you autofill a single value it's repeated. "

So it works correctly then. In excel, autofilling a cell formatted as text that has a number stored, increases the number by one, and autofilling a cell formatted as number repeats the cell. What's the ***ing logic in that?
