    Is there a way to keep Numbers spreadsheet screens from "floating" while they are being worked on? It's frustrating and I need help.

    I moved this to the iWorks section, where I think it will receive better attention.

    I'm almost certain that the answer is no, but if you'd describe what you mean be floating I'll be happy to look into it anyway. ;)

    "Floating" spreadsheet

    When I work on the numbers screen on a spreadsheet and I'm using my stylus to input data in cells, the spreadsheet moves when I barley touch it. It moves up and down and sideways with very little stylus movement. Hard to describe. In essence, the spreadsheet won't stay put. Most spreadsheets move up sand down or sideways, but this one moves all over the place. Is there any way to lock the screen while working on a spreadsheet?

    I never really noticed it until mentioned. Using my finger it doesn't happen much. It is possible that a better stylus might help, but no guarantee.

    Anyway, no, there is no way to lock the screen.

    However, you can create a form for most tables, those that have column headers anyway. It's a lot easier to add new data in a form. You don't have to double tap the cells and fiddle with the cell editor.
