    Hi
    I created a sheet on my Mac in Numbers 3.2.2 (on Mavericks). It contained conditional highlighting rules. I got it into Numbers on my iPad Air 2, but no highlighting! Do the rules not move with the sheet?
    Cheers!

    Don't know if the rules are carried over to numbers, but here is a site with info on conditional formatting. Hope it help you.

    Also Google will give several other sites.

    No, the iPad version of Numbers doesn't have support for conditional highlighting. The most you can do is choose a cell format that will change based on whether the number is negative or positive. There are only a few options.

    I havn't tested this, but the actual formatting probably remains in the file, so that it will still work properly on the Mac.
