To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 3 years agoIn previous versions of Excel (2010) when you had 2 workbooks open, side-by-side (on multiple monitors) and used this nifty feature, you could go back and forth between the workbooks and the info would stay in the status bar even though you were working in a different workbook. Now, in 2013, it seems that as soon as you shift focus to a different workbook, it clears the status bar. Do you know if this is a static "feature" or something that can be turned back on?
