Intro to Numbers on iPad
Numbers makes it easy to make compelling spreadsheets. You start with a template, then modify it however you like. The templates are designed for specific purposes—like budgets and checklists—to give you a great starting point for your work. Each template comes with predesigned styles for text, tables, shapes, and other objects that all look good together, so it’s easy to give your spreadsheet a coordinated appearance.
After you open a template, you can add your own numbers, formulas, dates, and text to any table; replace or delete charts and graphics; and add new tables, charts, and more.
When you select an object (an image, shape, chart, table, or cell), then tap , you see formatting controls for the type of object you selected.
You can quickly change the look of the selected object by tapping a style to apply it. You can also swipe up from the bottom of the formatting controls to see more options for customizing the object.
