Suppose I have data in A1, A2, A3, ..., A7. Suppose I then have calculations being performed on that data in A8, A9, A10, ... A15. Finally, suppose I realize I forgot a piece of data, so I need to insert a new row above A8 so that all the calculations are moved down 1 row. So that I now have data in A1, A2, A3, ..., A8. And my calculations are now in A9, A10, A11, ..., A16.
How can I do that? It's such a standard thing in Excel/Google Sheets, and I do it all the time, but I can't find anyway to do this on the HP Prime. (Note: I do not want to just add my new piece of data to B1 or something like that. That is not a solution.)
Also, CUT/PASTE doesn't seem to work at all. So that's not an option either as far as moving cells goes.

You should first select all lines from the one where you'd like to place a new line on. Then copy (Shift+View) all that, place the cursor one line below and paste your selection. Go back and select the dupplicated line. As you delete this line content, you'll have it free for using.

Thanks for the reply Bruno. I'm really hoping to figure out how to do these things from within the HP Connectivity Kit. It is a million times more convenient to build the Spreadsheet on my computer, and then USE it on the calculator.
COPY/PASTE from within the HP Connectivity Kit doesn't seem to work at all. Is there some secret to using the HP Connectivity Kit? Or is it totally useless?

You're right. Nevertheless, I've seen a significant improvement in HP Connectivity Kit during the last 18 months, as well as in the HP Prime FW and SW themselves. Spreadsheet is an example of App which has been improved since the last version.
I guess there are new improvements in the oven. I think it makes part of the product development process.
I have in mind that the major advantage of such powerfull device is the portability, I mean the device itself. The possibility of preparing customized solutions for every day use is the most important part. The Connectivity Kit is a tool for helping us during development tasks, but it might not be ment to interface the calculator to work like a desktop device. I agree it could do it better, but it looks like it's just a matter of time to have new improvements.
By getting used to the calculator itself, the keyboard will become progressively more comfortable. This is natural. Nowadays I use the Connectivity Kit mostly for typing programs and gathering screenshots for presentations and classes.
