Great suggestion E Bow. Thanks for taking the time to tell us about changes you’d like to see – we’re listening. We’ll take a look at this one. As always, folks should keep voting for the things they like the most – we’ll generally be prioritizing things according to the number of votes they get.

This "Feature" is terribly inefficient when using multiple monitors. I am constantly working between multiple spreadsheets and the inability to see what I've selected in one while working in another increases my mistakes and makes me much less efficient. Having to put a finger on my screen or taking a screenshot of an open application is a clunky and obtrusive workaround for something that should be simple. It's a shame that someone spent time to make this work, in direct contrast with the native behavior of every other application I've used, but it's a counter-intuitive UI choice that burdens the end-user.
