comment Stop Excel for Mac (2011) continuing formatting from last cell entered?
Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately it doesn't work, the same thing still happens, even after restarting Excel after disabling autocomplete (autocomplete is still turned off after restart). I just tried it and have included screenshots showing the results at the end of the question.

If you read the rest of the question, you'll see that I describe when it happens in as much detail as I'm able to with the information available, with screenshot examples. I'll edit it to make it extra clear though...

comment What is the keyboard shortcut for editing a cell in Excel?
I think it's just F- keys, e.g. it's cmd-t instead of F4 to add $ to formulas. I think it's because newer versions of Mac OS do system things with F keys so applications don't know they've been pressed.

The closest I can find so far is to set blank cells to white fill. Excel seems to accept white cells as a valid formatting choice, and treats them with a respect it would never give to unformatted cells. Trouble is, white fill brings certain problems of its own, so I wouldn't call it an answer.

comment Why won't the Finder sort when clicking on the column headers in this different list view?
The simple answer to "Why is the finder doing this" - the column headers are switched off any time a folder's Arrange by setting is set to anything other than None. You probably at some point changed it to Arrange by Name, which looks the same as Arrange by None (everything sorts by name), but has the (usually unexpected) side-effect of turning off and greying out the column headers. Switch it to Arrange by None and you'll be able to sort by date modified, size, kind, etc again.
