Description ddoty1 2006-04-02 23:02:41 UTC
In Excel, sheet tabs are not restricted to letters and (_) underscores. I
frequently name tabs with (.) periods and (-) dashes but get an error in Calc.
Also, the ability to shade tabs is an extremely useful tool, which seems to be
unavailable in Calc.

Special characters in sheet names are handled in issue 6087.

What do you mean with "shade a tab"?
Comment 2 ddoty1 2006-04-03 15:25:28 UTC
Similar to "background color" for formatting cells, in Excel you can also assign
colors to the sheet tabs themselves. For me, it's a handy tool to prioritize
workbooks that have a greater number of worksheets (red=critical;
black=finished; yellow=waiting on someone else; etc.). I'm new to this system,
but I'm going to attempt a screenshot of an Excel workbook for you to see.

I see. That's an old wish. You find it in issue 5560. Perhaps you like to vote
on it?

Your issue describes two problems. Such issues cannot be handled properly.
Please file an separate issue for each problem next time.

You can attach a file, if you follow the link "Create a new attachment" on this
page, but it is not necessary anymore. If you file a new issue, you can attach
something immeadiately after filing the issue.
