Pasting a formula across workbooks only pastes value and not formula

    Used Ctrl + C → Ctrl + V to paste a formula from one workbook to another. In Excel it pastes the formula, in SpreadJS it pastes the actual value of the formula.

    Can this be fixed to match Excel?

    Pasting among the different workbooks is currently not supported with SpreadJS because of the limited access to the clipboard.

    Excel desktop has the access to the internal clipboard and they share the same clipboard among the different workbooks that are for formula is got pasted properly.

    Excel 365 online paste action is performed as a serverside action because of that it is able to paste the formula correctly.

    Hope this clarifies the issue. Please let me know if you have further queries regarding this case.
