Key Notes

Sheet View Available for Original Version Only:

Sheet View is only available for the Original Version of native documents and not available for Download Version(s) (i.e., produced documents). Logikcull will automatically disable Sheet View if you select a Download Version from the drop-down in the Viewer. Switch back to the Original Version to enable Sheet View.

Differences in Hit Counts for Sheet View vs. Print Preview View:

Hit counts for Doc Viewer Search function may vary between Sheet View and Print View (i.e., non-Sheet View).

  • Sheet View Term Search: finds matches within cell contents, formulas, comments and notes

  • Print View Term Search: matches against cell content only (does not match against formulas, comments, or notes)

Future enhancements may include:

Navigating Sheet View

You can interact with Sheet View similar to how you interact with a native spreadsheet file.

  • Adjust Column Width: Hover your cursor over the column until an arrow appears. Hold and drag the column sides to expand or shrink, or double-click to Autofit.

  • Display Formulas: Select a cell to see the formula displayed in the top row of the viewer after fx.

  • Navigate Worksheets: Select Worksheet(s) to display from the bottom row.

Keyword Search & Persistent Highlights

Using the in-doc Search function with Sheet View enabled will highlight the entire cell containing the search term in the cell contents, or within the cell formula.

Text Search Hit

EXAMPLE: Searching for RAND hits on the text content in cell A5.

Formula Text Hit

EXAMPLE: Searching for RAND also hits on the text within the formula of cell B5.

💭 As noted in the Key Note section above, Sheet View will include hit counts for keyword terms within formulas while Print View will not. This may cause hit counts between Sheet View and Print View to vary.


See this discrepancy illustrated below for the example term RAND

Search Sheet Comments & Notes

Searches will hit on comments and notes. If there is a match, click View Comments to display Comments and/or Notes on the side panel.

Persistent Highlights

Sheet View will highlight cells containing terms set up with Persistent Highlights.
