Word Shifter Improvements

The latest release of the Word Shifter is release 4.2.  It is Excel 2007-2021 and Office 365 compatible. 

Latest improvements:

  • Fixed a Windows 10 bug that caused dialog to appear incorrectly and difficult to read or use.
  • Product review and improvements
  • Fixed a problem with the main dialog not appearing on some PCs
  • Added a checkbox option to force split text to remain as text.  If the split text is "1-5" or similar, Excel converts to a date unless this feature is turned on.
  • Fixed an Excel bug with dialogs not always appearing in the center of the Excel window if the user has two or more monitors.
  • Modified to fix a problem displaying dialogs in some non-English versions of Excel
  • Added a check of the data on a worksheet to see if has been converted to an Excel data list, and if so, advise the user to convert back to a normal Excel range before using the add-in.  A bug in Excel requires this. As few users use Excel data lists, few are impacted.
  • Minor installation improvements
  • Added option to use hot keys to shift words.  This eliminates having to go to the add-ins tab in Excel 2007 and 2010 to click on a button
  • Added additional options to split and join text
  • Made the options dialog modeless (allows you to select cells) and added buttons to shift words directly from it
  • Word Shifter now looks for the html space character in addition to looking for regular spaces.
  • Fixed a problem with blank cells in the destination column. 
  • Modified so that hidden rows are skipped. 
  • Added a feature where text is now shifted to the first visible column.
