Re: can't edit a formula in Excel ... again

Annette Carr
 

I've been having this problem intermittently for years. I think I have
picked up on a possible cause. If the length of the formula is wider than
the cell width JAWS will not read the info, or just keeps repeating the
entire formula. I've resorted to copying the cell contents and pasting them
into Notepad, making the edit, copying the new formula and pasting it in the
cell.

After pressing f2, when I try to move the cursor, JAWS reads the whole
stinkin' formula, but does not move character by character to allow editing.

Hight the cell
Press f2
In the edit field f2 takes you to edit the formulia

the latest version of JAWS2018 and 2019 has broken the ability to edit
a formula in an Excel spreadsheet ... again. the fix in earlier
versions of JAWS was to modify the JAWS Excel settings, insert+number
row 6. Go to text processing, general, Enhanced Edit Support, and be sure
it was unchecked.
Now, whether I check or uncheck enhanced edit support, I cannot edit a
formula in Excel.

Does anyone know a way to do this?

thanks,
