Copy & Paste: ignoring hidden columns


Wondering if it would be possible when copying & pasting data in a sheet with hidden columns, that it would paste to the columns that are visible.
I often copy only certain data from one place, and have created a View to match those columns, and would like to be able to paste the data just in those columns.

thanks again for listening.
talk soon.


Hi Benjamin,

Yes, it would seem helpful to have the case that you are referring to. If not as a default, probably as an option. We don’t have it today as this does not seem to be traditional spreadsheet software behavior. The generalization is that all data actions are done on contiguous ranges and hidden columns break that assumption.

We will consider this suggestion, deliberate and get back.

Thanks for the submission.
