Why is it orange?

    Hi Isabelle,

    Really need a little more information to go on. Is that row a summary row or parent row? Do you have conditional formating that may be making it orange? Is there a formula being used that might be coloring it orange? May be able to help with more information.

    Surely has to be Conditional Formatting if it is not a Colour you have chosen as the Background colour to the cell?

    See if you can change it selecting the cells, Click on the Watering Can in the tool bar and if you cannot change it, it is Conditional Formatting, so look in there and see what the logic is, that is being applied? 

    Hope that helps?

    Hi Isabelle-- From your screenshot, it looks like you might have Highlight Changes on. Try clicking the highlighter icon in the left-hand toolbar and turning the slider to off, hopefully that will resolve the issue! If not, email us at [email protected] and we'll be happy to help troubleshoot this further :)

    I suspect Kennedy got this one.

    Note that Highlight Changes can be turned on / off by others and it is saved for the sheet, not the user.

    The default color is "yellow", but it looks like someone preferred orange.
