Hi,

An embedded cell has appeared in Excel that mirrors everything I type. I can't delete it. Any ideas on what it is? It doesn't matter where I type.

Hi @Will_Peddie 

That's an interesting issue.

  1. Does it happen where ever you type or just in a specific cell?
  2. Does it happen in the same spreadsheet if you copy it to another computer?
  3. Does it happen with every spreadsheet or just a specific one?
  4. Can you share your spreadsheet to help troubleshooting?
