Re: Unable to set column header in office13 in windows10

Quentin Christensen

Are you using NVDA 2018.4.1 or an alpha build?

When did you notice it stopped working (or had you not tried before?)

When you are trying to set headers, do you definitely only have one cell selected?  It won't work if you have more than one cell (only select that cell that will be the first header - the leftmost cell for column headers or topmost cell for row headers).

Are you using any add-ons?  I'm not aware of any that should conflict with this, but it could be worth trying restarting NVDA with add-ons disabled just to check - press NVDA+Q, then down arrow to "restart NVDA with add-ons disabled" and press ENTER, then try your spreadsheet again.  If it works, check for updates to your addons, or try enabling one at a time.

Otherwise, a copy of your log may help (you can find out more here: - feel free to email to me at info@... directly.

Kind regards
