Undoing What You’ve Just Undone with the Redo Button
NOTE: You can’t skip over commands in the Undo history, undoing just some of them out of
sequence. You can only undo consecutive commands.
Undoing What You’ve Just Undone with the Redo Button
There’s a flip side to the Undo command,
too: Redo, represented by that
rightcurling arrow just to the right of Undo, as
shown in Figure 3–7.
Figure 3–7. Having second thoughts? Undo the undos
with Redo.
When clicked (keyboard equivalent: Ctrl+Y), Redo can undo your undos, if that’s not too
discombobulating. That is, if you execute an undo and instantly regret it, then click Redo
and that undo will be forgotten. And as with Undo, Redo also sports its own history via a
drop-down menu (revealed by clicking the little arrow to the right of the Redo button),
recording the commands you’ve undone. It works the same way as the Undo
Deleting Cell Contents
Of course, the most dramatic way to edit a
cell is to delete its contents—and if that’s
what you want to do, just select the cell
and press the Delete key. But bear in mind
that if you want to delete a group of cells,
select them by using one of the methods
already described in Chapter 2, and then
press Delete, as shown in Figure 3–8.

press Delete.
Copying and Moving: Duplicating and Relocating
Your Data
There will be times—probably many times—when you’ll want to make a copy of a range
of data. The basic means for doing so are pretty basic and easy, and resemble the ways
you’d carry out the process in Word. At other times you’ll want to move a range—an
equally easy process that also goes under the storied name of cut-and-paste.
