[German]Good news for Microsoft Excel users. Microsoft's developers are in the process of fixing an annoying error in the area of Excel's selecting cells in a spreadsheet.
In Microsoft Excel, you can select individual cells (see figure below). Hold down the Ctrl key and click on the cells to be selected.
But there's one annoying bug: If you select cells and unintentionally click a cell, you can no longer deselect this unintentional selection of a cell. You have to deselect all cells and start again. Users participating in Office 365 Insider Program received version 1712 (8828.2010) on December 9, 2017. Microsoft wrote within this document:
By popular request, in Excel, you now have the option to deselect cells that you accidentally clicked without having to start over.
The Excel-User-Voice entry collected 311 votes. I assume, that this fix won't make it's way to older Excel variants. (via)
Sometimes emotions about Microsoft Office, its compatibility with products such as LibreOffice or Softmaker Office are heating up – also within my blogs. There are users claiming, that MS Office is the only real choise, and the other office products are just garbish.
Just for curiosity I run a test. I have a portable version of LibreOffice 5 on my hard drive (that doesn't offer me MS Office). So just for fun, I startet the module Calc from LibreOffice and then try the same. What should I say: Selecting and deselecting non-adjacent cells works in LibreOffice like a champ.
