Clarity Studio - Expand and collapse indicators not showing up on template

Technote (troubleshooting)


The Group and Ungroup feature transforms Microsoft® Excel functionality, so that it can be used when viewing a document in your Web browser.


The expand and Collapse indicators are not visible in the web application even if they have been set up.


This can be caused by the fact that the range where these indicators are set up is hidden or

  • dynamic ranges change the location of the indicators to somewhere outside the initial Excel section
