Damn you, Excel. In the past I've had the notion, that you are the OG perfect sheet editor. Now, that I actually have to use you, all I have to say is to go, bow before Google Sheets!

    I want some conditional formatting. I set the range. It reduces the range in the meantime to three different ranges. I try to edit the existing formatting. I click on the input. I press shift+left, to select the part I want to delete. It starts selecting cells, instead of text. Rage.

    (This is the web-based version BTW, because the desktop app is even trashier. I don't even know how to scroll horizontally with the mouse wheel)

    Did you double click on the input? Sounds like you didn’t

    @IdontHaveAName Doesn't help. Almost no applications exist where focusing on an input prevents you from using the cursor as intended. (Image showing input which should behave properly)

    The first three words are enough. Everyone who has used Excel already knows the rest.

    "the OG perfect sheet editor" - dude, what were you smoking?

    seriously. the only thing excel ever did reasonably well was "being a flight simulator". (not joking.)

    @tosensei nothing. But maybe I should do it to be able to bear this shit UX.

    I've never really had to use it apart from a few short encounters in the past. I assumed (quite naively) that at least this paid product from Microsoft doesn't require infinite patience.
