Excel 2016 Bug with Cursor - Right to Left Languages
I have several computers. two of them is with Windows 10 and Office 2013/2016.
I noticed a bug with the typing cursor.
I use both English, a left-to-right language, and Hebrew, a right-to-left language, and each has a different typing cursor, a straight line ( | ) for left-to-right and a "hyphenated" line ( `| ) for right to left.
The problem is that in Excel 2016, the moment I switch my language to Hebrew and type something, it locks the cursor in the right-to-left configuration, even when I switch back to English, which gets very confusing, since the appearance of the cursor is how I keep track of which language I have selected.
Tried uninstalling and installing again, installed Office 2013, and still the problem is the same.
This problem does not exist in Word, and does not occur in other computers I have (for example, with windows 7 and office 2007.
Maybe a problem with the languages in windows? A bug with the combination of Windows 10 and Office 2013 / 2016? A bug in Excel 2013/2016?
I spent 2 hours with Microsoft's support, but they did not even understand the problem.
I'm having the exact same problem. The cursor is "stuck" in the Hebrew format but when you start typing, you see English letters. There is no proper indication to show what language you are in. This did not occur in previous versions of this program.
Please fix it, it is very annoying and time consuming.
Having the same problem as well (Windows 10 / Excel 2016). I'm an accountant, using Excel for editing financial reports, and this problem is really slowing me down. I hope someone can come up with a solution for this.
