    Interoperability of Outlines with Other Features
    In This Topic

    The outline (range group) feature affects the display and is not intended to work with some other features of Spread that also work with the display of the spreadsheet. Many features are not affected by outlines at all, but some features, listed below, are not intended to operate with this feature. In general, if the feature involves the appearance or interactivity of the sheet or column, check the list to see if it is affected by outlines.

    Be careful when adding rows or columns to a display that has an outline.

    The following features can work with grouping or are not affected by grouping:

    Features That Do Not Interoperate with Outlines

    These features do not interoperate with outlines in Spread.

    Feature Description
    Alternating Rows Outlines and alternating rows may not work together. Outlines changes the order of the rows, so having a display of alternating rows would not make sense. Thus, these features do not work together.
    Hierarchical Display Outlines and hierarchies are two different and dissimilar ways of grouping and displaying data. These features are not intended to work together.
    Outlook-style Grouping Outlines and Outlook-style grouping are two different and dissimilar ways of grouping and displaying data. These features are not intended to work together.
    Sorting Outlines and sorting might not work together.
