Features not supported by Mac

Inserting Row Using Right-Click Options

Inserting rows using the right-click option is one way where users will be able to insert the rows. Select one or more entire rows by moving the cursor to the row numbers. Right-click the selection and select Insert rows from the selection. Select either the row that needs to be inserted above or below the selection.

In the below image we inserted a row below E9 and when we click Save it will display the data in E10.

Formulas and default values won't be dragged to the newly inserted rows with a right-click insert, unlike Insert rows in the toolbox.

Recent Updates

  • Users will now find an option to download the file for Mac version 16.60. Previously, the file used to open automatically but due to security-related updates for v16.60 this change has taken place. Now, with v16.60 users need to manually open the file or app. Refer Mac Release Note 18 for more information on this update.

Known Issues

  • Currently, .xlsb format apps are not supported by Mac and Google Sheets in Runtime Mode. Save the app in .xlsx or .xlsm format in Design Studio to overcome this issue.

  • ".xlsm" format files are not opening in Excel for Mac for versions above 16.59. User should open the “.xlsm” file manually from the Download folder in Mac for Excel - versions above 16.59.
