We’re thrilled to share that after 6 months in development, we’ve completed and released the full version of our new worksheet grid. Working in a dense sheet on a large high resolution monitor? No problem. This change brings Spreadsheet.com’s grid performance up to par with today’s leading online spreadsheets in Chrome and Microsoft Edge.
We’ve renamed the Collaborator data type to “User” as shown:
We've also added an option to only show avatars (i.e. profile images) in User cells. When enabled, User cell values are more compact:
We've added a new level of organization to the data type selector shown when inserting a new column or changing the data type of a column, cell, or range of cells. Now data types are organized into categories starting with most frequently used. This should make it faster and easier to find the data type you are looking for.
When a column or specific cell is read-only, such as column formulas and related row lookups, you will now see a gray selection border around that cell.
We've added the # Number data type to the worksheet toolbar and removed the rarely-used Underline button (still available via CTRL+U / Command+U, and from the Format menu).
Following a community suggestion from Vertex42 we changed the behavior of column headers and table header row cells so that drop-down arrows appear non-intrusively on hover.
Now it's easy to quickly find out what permission level you have in a workbook by hovering over your profile icon in the top right of your browser, or by clicking on it:
