Mac Tip for Getting Arrow Keys to Work with Google Docs Spreadsheet

I use Google Docs a lot to share spreadsheets with other workers.  This allows workers to collaborate on the same document from different computers, devices and from different places.

The other day I was trying to quickly review some information on a very large Google Docs spreadsheet and found that my arrow keys were not working to let me quickly move from right to left horizontally through the spreadsheet.

Found out that if you switch the view of the spreadsheet from the spreadsheet view to the list view and back to spreadsheet view that arrow keys became functional again.

Hope this helps someone else who has had this same problem.
