Thinkfree Office Cell Limitations

Text formatting will be applied to entire cell text content and not only selected text within a cell. 

Currently, text formatting (e.g. font, font size, font color, bold, italic, underline, strikethrough etc.) will apply to all text within a cell. It is not possible to apply text formatting selectively within a cell. If you open an existing file with varying text formatting within a cell then Thinkfree will only show the default format.

MS Excel:  


Thinkfree Office Cell:



If you do not edit this cell then all formatting will be maintained after you save.  However, if you edit this cell, then the formatting will be changed to the default one only as shown above.

Cell styling after row 100 and column Z will not be saved unless the cells contain text or data input

Due to performance considerations, if cells do not contain any text or data input, the applied cell style after row 100 and column Z will not be saved.  If a cell contains data, then the nearest 10 rows and columns will also maintain their style.

Zoom setting warning message appears on certain OS and browser zoom settings
If the Windows display setting or browser zoom setting is not set at 100%, a warning message will appear.  However, Thinkfree Office Cell cannot detect the browser zoom setting properly in Mac Safari or on the Mac OS.
Can't display "####..." when cell content exceeds the cell width.
Usually in MS Office, if the content width is more than the cell width then "####..." is displayed. However, in Thinkfree Office Cell, the cell would display the full content instead of showing "####...".
