Re: Can't cut and paste between different documents

New member | Level 2

HI - I am trying to cut a line from one tab on my excel file through dropbox (on-line version of excel) and I can't paste onto another tab (not another document, same document, different tab).  Is this a malfunction or an oversite in ability to edit?


Re: Can't cut and paste between different documents

Hey there, @djulia. Sorry for the late follow up here on your query!
This kind of editing is possible via the online Microsoft Excel integration, although I would suggest to work within the same tab when working on the same file online.
For example, cutting a line from one tab and then pasting it in another, the web version may not be able to recognize you have pasted that text. In this case you may find that the text remains on the previous tab. 
If you are still having this issue, please try cutting and pasting (within the same tab) using another browser, an incognito window and then clearing your browser cache and let me know if this helps.
Looking forward to your reply - Cheers!
