    Does anyone know how to print the generated QR codes once they are created? After creating said code you aren't able to select them unless you switch to "designer mode" and even then you are only able to get into properties or format object. There is a checkbox for a "print object" under the format object selection but haven't been able to actually print the code itself. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hello,
    Is it possible to link a QR Code to the value of a cell in an online Excel spreadsheet ? Meaning that if one would edit the value of the cell, the QR Code would give the edited value of the cell ?
    Thank you
