Is there a way to lock a cells background color regardless of cut and paste?

New Contributor

Hi guys. So I'm working on a spreadsheet currently where I would like to protect a cells orange background color, but otherwise allow editing. Right now any time I copy another cell of a different color and paste it into the orange cell it changes the background color of the orange cell. 

 

Is there any way to avoid this?

When you select the orange cell right-click with the mouse and then paste options -> values.
