Disappearing Text

Occasional Visitor

Not sure if this is the right place but sure someone can help


I am using excel online and there is text visible in cells


When I use my keypad arrow keys to move from one cell to the next, the content in the first cell completely disappears


It was there, nothing is in white and nothing in the function box now either. It just goes and the only way I can get it back is to undo


I've looked around but can't find an answer anywhere


Thanks !

There are probably many spaces in the cell from beginning to text.

But to be on the safe side, please send the file (without sensitive data) with the error,

so that you can be sure of a suggested solution.


Thank you for your understanding and patience
