I am having a problem with my keyboard freezing in Microsoft Excel. When opening excel, the keyboard works normal and i am able to use the arrow keys to move cells within the workbook. However, when I access the ribbon and perform a function, the keyboard will freeze? The only way to resolve the issue is to use the mouse to click on a cell, at which time the entire keyboard become functional again.
For example, if i use Alt+H+H to fill color of a cell, as soon as i select a color the keyboard will freeze. I am not able to arrow out of the cell or type anything in the cell until I use the mouse to click the cell.
Can someone help me out? I have tried using the ScrollLock function but that does not appear to be helping.
Note: I am running Macabacus (modeling enhancement tool) but the issue occurs when using basic ribbon shortcuts, so I do not think it is Macabacus related.
