I’ve been using keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Office on Windows for years. So here I am now using Mac Office on a Macbook Pro and still trying to figure out how to get around the keyboard.

Tip of the Day - Windows Excel Alt+Enter    and in  Mac Office Excel keyboard shortcut is Fn+Ctrl+Alt

This adds a carriage return within the current cell and its great for doing long text entry in 1 cell.

ahh the joys of finding out how to do this.

One other annoying fiddly thing to remember in the Macbook Pro is to press the FN key before using any of the function keys. As the Macbook Pro has only F1 - F12 and all the keys are usually preset for Mac things like Spaces, Expose and Volume.
