View formulas globally in a sheet

Both Google sheets and Excel have a shortcut (CTRL+~) that allows you to toggle a view that shows all the formulas in the sheet at once (that is, the cells change from displaying values to displaying the underlying formulas).  I find this very helpful to:

- Discover which columns I want to shade grey to indicate that they shouldn't be manually edited

- Find any rows/cells where the formula didn't get copied over 

- Making sure the formulas are consistent

- Generally getting a look at the formulas

I've looked everywhere but I can't find a way to do this in Smartsheet. Currently I have to click in each cell to see individual formulas.

Thanks for any advice / considering adding this feature!



  • Hello,

    Smartsheet currently doesn't have a keyboard shortcut to toggle viewing underlying functions vs their return values.
