    Selecting a Contiguous Range of Cells
    In This Topic

    You can select a range of cells and set properties for all the cells in that range. To select a cell or range of cells, click and drag over the cells in the work area. The Spread Designer shows the cells are selected by highlighting them. The active cell shows the focus indicator and displays the cell with the sheet background color, in this case white.

    Selected Cells in Data Area of Spread Designer

    Not all cell types (check box and button for instance) react to the first click on cell selection. This allows the Spread Designer to set the selected cell(s) into the Properties window for property access. You must double-click a cell for a change to occur; simply single clicking does not change the state of the button or the state of edit mode.

    For information on other selectable items, return to Selecting an Item in the Spread Designer.
