Re: Unable to set column header in office13 in windows10

Bernd Dorer


your log should contain more lines. Which addons do you have installed?

yes sir thank you very much. its working after disabling addons with
shortcut key insert+shift+c.
i thought it is problem with windows10 as i tried excel only after
installing all basic NVDA addons. today, i tried with jaws
insert+ctrl+alt+c which worked perfectly then i determined problem is
with some setting in NVDA.
Then as you suggested i disabled addon and its working now but its
getting crashed or not working after i enter into addon manager and
come out even without enabling any addon which is a big wonder to me.
This line is getting generated in log sir.

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 directly.

Kind regards

Dear friends,

upto the insert+shift+c for setting column header is not working in
windows10 latest NVDA version where the row header key insert+shift+r
is working.
Kindly provide us the step to rectify this.

nothing is difficult unless you make it appear so.
