Suppose I have a range of cells which contain relative references in localc. Is there a quick way to select this range and change every reference to an absolute one i.e. adding Dollar signs in each reference?

Select the cells you want to change. Key shift-F4 to cycle through the different forms of reference, A1 -> $A$1 -> A$1 -> $A1 -> A1. This changes all cells in the selected range.

This works with non-contiguous ranges too. Tested on Libreoffice 3.4.5 on linux and 3.5 on Windows.
