Moving a group of data

Post by Léon » Thu Dec 24, 2020 12:41 pm

In principle I have a lot of appreciation for SoftMaker Planmaker, but one thing I don't understand:

If I move a group of data to perform an operation, all the data are gone. All formulas change.

This makes the program unworkable.

Why does this happen and is there a cure?

Please see the images below.

Because that's as per design, when you move the data using cut/paste formulas also change. Please drag and move the cells which you want to move to the other area. Select the area which you want to move, press and hold the mouse pointer and then move the data to the destination area.

Hello SuperTech,

Until almost three weeks ago I never used a mouse in my life: always touchpad.

I followed your instruction and it works.

Thank you very much!

After I posted this problem, I discovered that “Paste special” (whatever that means) also works.

What a relief, because I use this function every day.
