    invisible text

    Help, suddenly all my spreadsheets have invisible text throughout. Format remains and data is all there but not visible or printable.
    I've checked all the obvious (to me) things including -

    that all text is black, all background is white.
    that there is no conditional formatting in place.
    that there is no protection on.

    Any suggestions please, this has happened across all files so it's not a one-off mistake in one file.

    Hi chrissieben and welcome to the forum,

    Please attach a sample workbook. Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and use the paperclip icon to open the upload window.

    Found my own solution - weirdly all my financial sheets use Ariel Narrow font, changing to any other font now makes it all reappear.

    've marked as solved as I've managed to get around the problem, but still don't know why this happened.
