Re: Paste Defined Name in Excel

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Quentin,

 

I always thought that the Insert+F3 command was an NVDA command but I discovered to my surprise that it is actually an Excel command. It allows the user to paste the defined Name of their choice into an edit box or a single cell, etc. It is a really useful tool when editing.

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

You're welcome Cearbhall,

 

I know I've seen this issue with another edit box in Excel, but I can't find an issue about it.  In any case, I've created a new issue: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7416 and hopefully fixing one of these edit boxes will fix others.


Regards

 

Quentin.

Quentin,

 

That was exactly what I needed!

 

When I press “alt+r” to edit the refers box while looking at the list of defined names, I took my time and pressed F2 first. I then pressed the left-arrow to move backwards through the details of the actual formula.  Prior to this, I would move the arrow keys immediately and I take your point that the focus changes so that I was getting other irrelevant edits suggestions.

 

I can edit the other two text fields without any problem so  now I can manage every field in the Names Dialog!

 

Great work!

 

 

All the best,

Hi Cearbhall,


I see what you mean.  There are a couple of other places in Excel that do that as well - Either the selected cells, or the current cell are listed in that "refers to" edit box, and all selected.  For some reason, in many of its edit boxes, when text is selected, all we can see is "blank".  When you get to that edit box, press F2 to go into edit mode, then press an arrow to unselect everything.  If you don't press F2 then as soon as you press an arrow, it will move the focus.

 

Another way of naming a cell or range, is to select either the cell or range you want to name, then press alt+f3, which takes you to the name box, you can then type a name and press ENTER.  Because that does it directly, it can be quicker, but also doesn't give you the list of existing names to check against first.  You can down arrow in the edit box and it will go through the existing names.  Pressing ENTER on any name will move the highlight to that named cell or range.

 

Regards


Quentin.

Quentin,

 

I have been trying to setup a number of defined names in excel 2016 on windows 10 with the latest NVDA. I can edit all the parts of the defined name dialogue but not the “Refers to” part. This is like an old Wyziwyg editor in the bad old days!

 

I can capture the formula using the NVDA screen capture keys from the display of the formula under control-F3 and paste it into Notepad for amendment.

The only way I can edit it is to press alt-r and then mess around with the arrow keys until I get “Sheet1!a1 or something similar. This code is nothing like the actual formula that I would have put into the “Refers To” box and which I can see on the listing of the Defined name using control+F3. I backspace all of this until NVDA is silent. Then I go to my formula in Notepad -something like:

=”B” & Match(“Totals”, $B:$B , 0)

Which gives me the address of a particular cell that can move around as work proceeds on the sheet.

I then paste this formula blind into the “Refers to” edit field and tab to “Close” to save the edit. I can see the result in the listing under control-F3.

 

It would be so much easier if I could actually edit it in the edit box! Have you any solution to this?

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

No clue, but from all appearances the domain has been released for purchase.  I am imagining that this is a glitch of some sort and perhaps the whole site is being reworked, but it's definitely missing in action at the moment.

Re: NVDA 2017.3

Be patient. It's a bit early yet. Releases don't happen till at least the
middle, towards the end of more bugs are uncovered, of each of the three
month quarters of the years. For instance, this third quarter would be from
July through September. I wouldn't even look for it till at least the middle
of August. We'll get plenty of notice as the public betas are announced
here. After the beta shows up, it's about a week away. If there needs to be
a second beta, then it could be pushed back another week. People should
acquaint themselves more with the release schedule so that the same
questions don't always get asked over and over again by long time members.

I don't have Windows 10. As far as I know, the only problem with using Windows Live Mail in Windows 10 is that when writing messages or replying, etc. you can't read what you have written unless you leave and return to the window. This can be done very conveniently and quickly by pressing alt to move to the ribbons, then pressing alt again to move back to the window you were in. I can't say whether the app is worth using. I've never used it so I don't know how it compares in terms of convenience.

You could try this I got from a forum page:

 

1 Press Windows key and type Windows PowerShell in the search bar.

2 Select the Windows PowerShell desktop app in the list, press applications key and select Run as administrator.

3 Enter the below command to reinstall the Mail and calendar app.

               get-appxpackage *microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps* | remove-appxpackage

4 type exit and press enter to close Power Shell

After performing the above steps, install the Mail and calendar app from the Windows store.
