    Text Overflow Over Hyperlinks - Is This A Feature?


    I have Excel 2010 on a PC and create spreadsheets for use on an Android Phone. The version of Excel on the phone I presume is based on Excel 365 and so we would expect some differences in behaviour.

    I have some hidden Hyperlinks that display no text, for example: =HYPERLINK("#A1","")

    On the Android Phone text from the adjacent cell will overflow the hyperlink and beyond. The hyperlink still works if you know where it's located even though there is text overflowing it.

    On the PC running 2010 the text does not overflow, since as you would expect the cell contains a hyperlink which is a formula.

    Is this a feature of 365 please and intended behaviour?

    I'd like to develop a spreadsheet that takes advantage of this 'feature', but if it's a bug and MS decide to fix it one day, then my XLS will stop working as intended, so that's why I'm curious.

    You might want to add "... of MS365" to your thread title.

    I've moved this to the Office 365 section.
