Trace Formulas

We figured out a way to Trace Dependents and Trace Precedents in Google Sheets using the same keyboard shortcuts as Excel. It even works across tabs and lets you return to the previous cell using F5 just like Excel. No more getting lost when auditing formulas.

Add/Remove Columns/Rows

No more clicking headers or struggling to remember the Google Sheets shortcut. Want to add/remove a column or row? Do it the way you're used to: Highlight the whole column or row on the first try using CTRL+SPACE or SHIFT+SPACE then add or delete the column/row using the Excel-style CTRL shortcut.

Freeze Frames

Freezes frames in a single stroke rather than having to freeze the row and column separately. Google Sheets (by default) freezes panes in the down/right direction rather than up/left like Excel. We fixed that too.

Goal Seek

Our Goal Seek works just like Excel's. Find the perfect number fast.

TTS Macro Formatting

Used to formatting with Training the Street Macros? Those superpowers are now on Google Sheets. You're welcome. (Mac-only. PC blocks us on this feature.)

Details Matter

Within the color palette, we added an Excel-style contrast ring around the color to make it easier to see which one you're selecting during keyboard-only navigation.
