Selecting multiple cells and sheets

To select multiple cells in different areas of a sheet, hold down the Controlkey and click, or click and drag on the cells or areas of cells with the mouse.

In OOo 2.0 you no longer need to highlight a selection of cells before you can select an individual cell as you did in OOo 1.1.x. You can start selecting multiple individual cells just by holding down Control.

To select multiple sheets in a spreadsheet one at a time, hold down the Control key, and then click the sheet name tabs at the lower edge of the workspace.Clicking on a selected sheet tab while pressing the Controlkey will deselect that tab only.To select a contiguous range (or group) of sheets, hold down the Shiftkey, and then click the name tab of the sheet at either end of the grouping.
