Tab Hound Window – Feature Guide
The following image highlights the major features of the Tab Hound window.
Video #1 – Sheet List
The sheet list contains a list of all the sheets in the currently active workbook. Double-clicking (or pressing Enter) on any sheet will take you to that sheet.
The sheet list is packed with additional features that make it easy to work with your sheets. Checkout the video for all the features of the sheet list.
Video #2 – Search Box
The search box allows you to filter down the sheet list for any sheet containing your search term. This is a very fast way to find a worksheet and navigate to it. You can also use the search box to filter the list, select multiple sheets, and then perform actions on those sheets like hiding and unhiding.
Video #3 – Flip Back Button
The Flip Back button will take you back to the last sheet you were on. You can continue to press it to jump back and forth between two sheets.
Video #4 – Table of Contents
Add a Table of Contents (TOC) sheet to the front of any workbook. The TOC sheet contains clickable links to each sheet in the workbook, and it’s a great way to a professional and organized touch to any workbook you are distributing to an audience.
Video #5 – Keyboard Shortcuts
All the buttons in the Tab Hound window have dedicated keyboard shortcuts. Simply press and hold the Alt key, then press the underlined letter in the button name to press that button with a keyboard shortcut.
You can also open the Tab Hound window and press the Flip Back button with keyboard shortcuts by adding the buttons to the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT).
