Copy cells in excel 5 Years ago Karma: 2  
Hello,

Not an XLC question per se, but this seems like a good place to ask.

I am using Excel 2010 after having quite a long break from doing any real intensive calculations in excel. I could have sworn in previous versions when I clicked on a cell and copied it with Ctrl+C, I could press Ctrl+V more than once to copy the source cell to as may destination cells as I wanted without the source cell deactivating.

Is this correct or has Excel always only ever allowed one Ctrl+V for each Ctrl+C command? Seems a bit painful. I know there is the clipboard but that not really as efficient as a quick keyboard operation.

Many thanks,
Jake

Hi Jake. I am afraid this is a bug in XLC. To get back your normal behavior you need to temporarily switch off XLC. This can be done from Excel Menus File>Options>Addins Then at the bottom of the page you'll find Manage Excel Add-ins and a "Go" button. Hit the "Go" button and un-select XLC. You can switch it back on when you need to. Sorry this is only a work around and not a fix.

Hi John. Thanks for your prompt reply - thought I must have been going mad for a minute!

Work around seem easy enough to implement. Is there any hope for a fix in the future? Just find myself doing a lot of copying and pasting with XLC when I need to copy formula with correct units etc. from one place to another.

Kind regards,
Jake

I spent a little time on this yesterday and I have a fix which I will include in the next release. If you go to the XLC download page and press the subscribe button you'll be automatically emailed when the update is available for download. Thanks for reporting this in Jake.
