I’m trying to make good on one of my New Year’s resolutions. Namely, to stop using so many cell formats and start using more styles. Generally, I’m happy using the styles because I find myself needing the exact same format over-and-over. Or I’ll find that I need to change a certain format and can do it all in one shot. Nice.
I absolutely hate the dialog in Excel, though. It doesn’t fit well with my keyboard-centric dogma. Like any good Excel user, I thought about writing my own style managing utility. But I’ve been burned before. I’d spend a lot of time putting one together, post it here, and the first comment would be “Oh, I have one already and it’s way better than yours.”. And it would be.
This time I thought it would be prudent to see if there’s anything good out there before I set out to write my own. If you use styles and have a utility that makes it easier, leave a comment. Thanks.
