Cell Size Comment from Jafar Abdalla @ 4/4/2015
Is there a way to not let the size of a cell affect the size of other cells on the same row? For example, after you increased the font size for the Contact Info cell it not only increased the size of that cell but also the cells in that whole row.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

If you're viewing the data through a Form then you can change the size of each Textbox.
If you are viewing it at a Table Level then they will all be the same size.
I'd advise making a Form to view the data.

If you embed an object in a spreadsheet, then send that spreadsheet to someone, does the object go with it too? Say I embed a short video (movie)...will it send with the Excel spreadsheet?

Hiding comments Comment from Roy Gushwa @ 5/3/2013
Each time I click off off the comments, they do not hide.  I have added 2 and they are visible and do not go away.  Thoughts?

Reply from Richard Rost:

Right-click on the cell with the comment and select HIDE COMMENT.

Email address not hyperlinking Comment from jagdish chopra @ 3/13/2013
When I enter email address in a cell, it does not automatiacally become useable e-mail address I can use unless I type in hyperlink e-mail address. Help!

Reply from Richard Rost:

Excel should automatically turn valid email addresses into MAILTO hyperlinks but this setting may be turned OFF on your PC. Check here: File > Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect Options > AutoFormat as you Type tab > Internet and network paths with hyperlinks

same page number as I switch Comment from Sean R @ 3/11/2013
While I was following your instruction of how to mark the pages using Header & Footer, my sample spreadsheet will give me the same page number as I switch to another blank page. How do you fix that?

Superscript on Ribbon Comment from Carol Brown @ 11/19/2011
How can I add the subscript and superscript
to the ribbon or is there a key shortcut that will work.
Also, how can I add a true font to Excel's font list.

Reply from Richard Rost:

In Word you can go into Options > Customize the Ribbon and pick All Commands. You'll see superscript and subscript in the command list. I checked for Excel and I didn't see them. I don't think it's possible to add those commands to the Ribbon or Quick Access Toolbar in Excel. Can anyone else prove me wrong?

Adding a TrueType font is something that you do at the Windows level in your Control Panel.
