    I want to do conditional formatting and dual axis charts
    These capabilities are available in Numbers on the MacBook
    If I were to create a sheet with these advanced formatting features on the MacBook and send it to the iPad would they be supported there even though you can't implement then there

    From Apple's support site:

    If you want to provide sample spreadsheet I would be happy to load it into Numbers and let you know how much is lost.

    The instructors at the Apple Store should have known that was there.
    Based on that it doesn't look good for dual axis and combined chart types

    I'm kind of surprised, because I'd think that question would get asked more.

    When you take the 90-minute hands-on iWork class Numbers gets 10 minutes at the end if the class if the instructor is watching the time otherwise it gets opened and you are told the inspector is the same as in
    Pages and Keynote
    If I were organizing that class I would put Keynote last since you have to get the content for it from other places like Pages and Numbers

    I can see then giving Pages a lot of time. Most people probably use that app. I'd think Numbers would be more important the Keynote and deserve more time, but maybe I'm wrong and more people do presentations than collect and crunch numbers.

    Or maybe it's a backhanded compliment. They just figure people who want to use Numbers are so smart they will figure it out for themselves. :p

    I am not sure about that
    The stuff that should be in the Inspector that got put other places doesn't make it very intuitive

    I have been trying to read through the first chapter on Numbers in the iWork Missing Manual for a week now
    Every time I get started I fall asleep

    I'll have to try that then. Counting sheep never seems to work for me. ;)
