Excel editing Conditional Formating rules cursor issue

New Contributor

Hi,

using Excel Office365, when I want to edit a conditional formatting rule (I had created, minutes ago) , when right clicking on the specific part of the rule to edit with the mouse, the edit cursor does not positioned where is the mouse cursor .In fact the cursor is blicking on the right side of the rule, and if I move the mouse to the very left at the beginning of the rule, the edit cursor eventually is positioned at the end of the word contracted


and(left($AP4,10)<>"Contracted"),$AV4<4)


I feel like there is a glitch between the movement of the mouse, and the movement of the cursor.

Weird and only happen with this edition of rule, no where else.

The only way is to completely scrap the rule and rewrite it. Boring

Any idea welcome

Hello! I can't say anything useful about your problem with the mouse, but I can probably help you.
When editing the conditional formatting, you can also work with the cursor keys. You only have to press the F2 key once. Then you get into the editing mode. This is largely unknown. Many users struggle with editing the conditional formatting even though it is not necessary.

I hope this tip will enable you to edit now.

About Mouse, I will check If I have other issue elsewhere. (after a while the button may have issue ) and thanks for the F2 tricks, which will help me.
