[Solved] Disappearing plus sign in table cells

Postby jimmyturnip » Sun Apr 12, 2020 2:22 am

Hi, I want to enter "+2" into a table cell. Just those two characters. Every time I click away from the cell or hit tab, the plus sign disappears leaving just "2". I tried changing some of the AutoCorrect options, but didn't get anywhere. Thanks!

Select the cells you want to affect then right click on one of them and turn off Number Recognition.
