    And it often doesn't release the copied cells when you hit escape. The copy-paste functions in excel have worked almost flawlessly since before Windows XP and the latest round of "enhancements" to remember earlier copies have completely fouled it up. I do a couple of thousand copy and pasts within Excel, into Excel and out of Excel on an almost daily basis and this is driving me nuts. It makes Excel THE MOST INFURIATING PROGRAM I use.
