Step # 2 – Adjusting rows

A similar process has to be undertaken in order to adjust the size of any row, but instead of clicking a letter designing a column, one of the numbers at the far left has to be tapped. As before, a green square will appear signaling that the row is ready to be adjusted. It is possible to drag now one of the green circles in the middle, in order to select and adjust more than one row at a time. Please note this also works with columns:

Step # 3 – Modifying text

For changing any of the different text parameters available for modification, such as size, font, type, text formatting, etc; select a range of cells after tapping a single unit and select all the cells you would like to modify at once. Then, go to the option “Home” at the ribbon. Any changes at this stage will affect all the selected cells.
