Using Microsoft Excel for Mac stops Illustrator 2022 from 'command+space' zooming

Dear all,

I have been using Adobe Illustrator 2022  with GPU on, and whenever I open Microsoft Excel 16.59, the GPU /zoom mode stops working and when I press command+space, it instead just goes to white arrow mode. Quitting Excel fixes this but need to extract text and values to paste into my artwork.

Can keep quitting excel each time.

Not a solution but a possible work around - is it quicker to switch to CPU (ctrl-E) when you need to paste, then back again, instead of quiting?

Thanks, that does work (as a workaround), also annoyingly, the function does work whilst actively using MS Excel (for example right now!)- however it picks & chooses when it wants to work / decide not to (for example, the first time after installing, or perhaps for other reasons).  Can live with it for now, just wondered if I wasn't the only one!
