Click to Call and Excel Spreadsheet

Could you recall Click to Call as in interfers with the copy function in Excel.

I spent 3 days copying formulas manually in Excel because Click to Call messed up the copy function.

We appologize for this problem and I'm happy to announce that Skype Click To Call released an updated version that does not cause the problem. Get it at http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-skypetoolbar/

This is confirmed here:

and here:

It really needs a fix.  I spent hours of extra time in the last week or so because I could not paste formatted content into Word or Excel. The cause is not obvious at all and takes some serious web-searching to find.

Re: Click to Call and Excel Spreadsheet

Yes, I;d also like to know why Skype issues software which interferes with other important other software on my PC.

When are you going to fix the problems with copy and paste on Excel? It has cost me hours sorting this out. Do I bill you those hours or switch to VOIPBuster, with which my pal has never had a problem. Or should I just disable your trashware on Chrome, which is when my problems started?

I'm waiting for a reply -...I've not seen one so far.

Re: Click to Call and Excel Spreadsheet

I agree - fix it or recall it.   I spent over 12 hours researching and screwing around with this, trying everything I could find until I just happened across the solution, which was to uninstall Skype's Click to Call!

Re: Click to Call and Excel Spreadsheet

Thank you so much for fixing this! and thank you to all the people who wrote and posted about it. I spent about 5 minutes today looking for a solution, downloading Skype fix, and getting my excel back to functional. I appreciate that that was possible because others spent hours and hours trying to figure out what had messed up their excel copy function. Thank you!
