    Hi,

    I was updating sheets for the new year. I keep lot of my template the same from year to year, just deleting the items in cells and starting over. It’s easy when using the PowerBook from a keyboard. The Delete key does the trick, but how do I do it from the Powerbook keyboard. The Delete key just does one cell at a time????

    Thanks.

    Frank

    I was wondering this, and I just figured it out.

    Another question, I was trying to Find and Replace a certain object in a group of cells. However it deletes the entire contents in the cell. Any ideas???

    On a Powerbook, fn + Backspace will delete the entire selection.

    Thank you very much

    You wouldn't believe how much time I spent trying to find this information. I even tried CTL + Delete, CMD + Delete, etc. Just not Fn.

    Thank you

    Works great. Wonder why this is not in help. At least I cannot find it. There are several items in the Windows version I cannot find. One is two lines on the toolbar line. I have a very difficult time finding help for Office for Mac.

    I have tried just about every other key combination. This is going to save me a ton of time, thanks!

    You really wonder why Apple cannot put a real keyboard on their laptops.

    How to delete the line?

    FN Delete just deletes the words in the cell, but the blank cells linger. How can I delete the entire line? Especially if the whole row was selected?
