  1. Ticket #12395436 - Excel arabic

    Hi, we experience an issue with MS Excel and the arabic language pack: User does right click on desktop and selects new Excel Workbook. New Workbook opens and first column A is on the right of the sheet and title of the sheet is arabic. If user just starts excel and creates a new workbook within excel all is working as expected, only if user selects new workbook from right click to desktop this happens. We installed the arabic language pack and this seems to affect the default template of excel.

    The same issue is already reported for Office2007 and…

  2. Alt+ shortcuts are stuck/hanging in the ribbon and require a mouse click to continue. Have tried endless options to no avail.

    All of my ALT+ shortcuts are not working properly. For example ALT+H+H+N to remove fill on a cell does the following: the execution is preformed, the fill is removed, but my selection remains on the home tab of the ribbon and does not allow me to continue navigating the sheet. This is true for all ALT+ shortcuts, and randomly started occurring today. I have tried repairing, reinstalling, restarting, etc. etc.etc.

    I rely heavily on ALT shortcuts as Im not one to constantly click the ribbon tools.

  4. Fix the "There's a problem with the clipboard" issue

    The issue with "There's a problem with the clipboard..." while copy and pasting is still as issue. I was using Office 2010 and there was no problem. I am now using Office 365 and this issue is prevalent. It manifests itself when pasting a value from a cell containing a formula and disappears when disabling Live Preview. I was able to copy and paste "normal" cell contents fine before the error message appears so the official response of "another program has locked the clipboard" doesn't really hold up. It looks more like Excel has locked the clipboard from itself.

    There…

  10. Let people actually enter data (hint: NOT EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS A DATE)

    Sometimes I enter text. Sometimes I enter fractions (funny huh, in a data entry application). They ARENT DATES! Thanks for destroying the actual data in the process of converting it. Also no matter how many buttons I mash it "detects" the date every time unless I manually enter every field with a ' before it. Here's an idea. DO WHAT I ACTUALLY ENTERED. Not what you think an idiot might be TRYING TO DO. The actual commands I entered. Do it. For once.

  12. I'd like to selectivley copy some cells to external apps like Notepad

    When I selectively select cells to copy and paste into an app like Notepad, Excel seems to copy a range, ignoring my selection. I'd like copy and paste to work as expected, copying only the data the user selected to copy.

    To see this behavior, create a new spreadsheet, and enter the following:
    A1 : 1
    A2 : 2
    A3 : 3

    Then Control Click cells A1 and A3. Press Control-C to copy, then Control V in Notepad to paste.

    Expected results:
    1
    3

    Actual Results:
    1
    2
    3

    Was informed I needed to post this bug here as a…
