Editor for Excel is a free app which allows users to rapidly open and edit their spreadsheets. Not only does it mean you can work on any spreadsheets you have created and saved already with the full version of MS Excel, it allows you to review and alter other file formats as well. This is ideal for people who want a quick editing tool on a second device, perhaps their tablet, when working away from the office.
Improving on Excel?
In overview, this handy little app allows you to do many of the functions that you would be able to do if you were running the standard version of Excel. It permits users to open and edit all of the standard Excel file formats, such as .xls, .xlsx, .csv. Usefully, it can either open spreadsheets in these formats from a local disk or be used to view internet-stored files.
Therefore, it is ideal for anyone who engages in cloud computing and who wants to edit a shared spreadsheet, before returning it to its saved state for others to view. Although it does not do anything that Excel itself does not, the fact that it is free means that it is ideal for downloading to a smartphone when a second copy of the full version might be costly. Furthermore, it has a great deal of functionality when compared to other freeware spreadsheet editors. For example, it offers jump to page and text search functions. Unlike some competitor apps it will also allow you to print from it without needing to download a plug-in that you have to pay for.
Making the Most of Editor for Excel
Having said that Editor for Excel is great for handling your spreadsheet needs, particularly when you don't want to start up your desktop computer for a few minor changes, that is not all this powerful app offers. The editing programme also allows you to view .doc and .docx files, too. This means that it is perfectly good for viewing Word documents and reading them in a convenient layout – ideal when you receive an email on the go with one included as an attachment.
The software is also able to handle .pdf formats, so it can deal with Adobe, as well. Indeed, the app will also be quite capable of supporting any files you receive in rich text format. For a single item of software, it means that you get quite a lot of document handling power in one app. Try it out as an alternative for Excel, Word Office and Adobe and you may find that you don't need to have individual software for each file type ever again. Users can navigate their way around the various functions in a way that is simply laid out and that is natural for anyone who has used these types of software before. There are even options to bookmark or outline items as well as handy thumbnail lists, too.
With this app, all of the commonly used office programmes can be viewed, edited and saved for a later date with ease. There is a huge amount of functionality that will satisfy all but the most expert users of spreadsheets. The fact that it handles word processed documents and PDFs too is little short of amazing.
