Description jmills 2005-06-25 06:50:11 UTC
So I have a spreadsheet.  A number of cells (say, A1, b1,b2,b3 and d1 contains
cells in date format.

I change the format of A1.

I want to put this onto the other cells.

Select A1 and CUT

Select B1
Ctrl-select B3 and D1

Paste Special (Formats) ... err no, can't do that - greyed out
Format painter?  Nope - only does a single cell at a time.. "Insert into
multiple selections not allowed"

Any advice, or can we fix Paste Special?

Since this is a working feature in Excel, it's not a bug, just a missing feature.
Can please somebody change this to RFE ?

this is a double to Issue 7357 which could be easily found with keywords 'paste
multi' for the description entry and selecting all words/strings from the
dropdown box to the right in the query facilities of Issuezilla.
