    • When files in the format of .xls or .xlsx contain named charts, the charts are retained with their name ranges when you edit the file in IBM® Connections Docs.
    • When you edit one formula cell, all the references (include those refer to other sheets) in the formula will be highlighted with color. If you input a new range during editing, the new range is highlighted with a new different color.
