Has anyone got a list of features that has been lost in the new version of Numbers?
I am aware (and disappointed) that the useful Categories feature has gone (I have requested this feature back on relevant Apple page). I think I also saw that Print view had disappeared.
What else has gone? I make extensive use of filtering and sorting - if those features have been watered down then I think I may not bother updataing.
Thanks in advance,
Here's my updated list. I'd really appreciate it if anyone who knows how to do the things in this list with Version 3 would reply with an explanation. I checked all these reports out as well as I could, but I certainly could have missed something.
