Figure 9–12. You’ve heard of tab collars? These are tab colors.
Just click the color you prefer, and the tab will take on that hue. Keep in mind, though,
that when you click the recolored tab, it more or less reverts to its original white color.
It’s only when you click on a different tab that you’ll see the new color you’ve selected
(see Figure 9–13).
Figure 9–13 . Changing tab colors
Notice that on the left in Figure 9–13, the Sheet3 tab has been clicked, making it appear
mostly white. On the right in the figure, Sheet2 has been clicked, which allows Sheet3’s
color to appear fully.
You can also easily hide a sheet, and there may be good reasons for wanting to do so,
though top-secret confidentiality isn’t one of them. For example, you may want to hide a
sheet containing complex formulas that other viewers don’t need to know about. Also,
when you hide a sheet, no one—including you—will be able to accidentally overwrite
any of the formulas or inflict any other inadvertent damage. To hide a sheet, just
rightclick its tab and select Hide. Presto, the sheet disappears.
When you want to restore the sheet to view, just right-click any available sheet tab and
click Unhide…, and you’ll see the dialog shown in Figure 9–14.
