Google Sheets "Paste Special > Transpose" greyed out

I tried multiple times to follow the video and copy the data then paste special and transpose. I searched in the community and on Google, but did not find an answer to get this to work.

I finally used the formula =TRANSPOSE()

This isn't the best solution, but I hope it might help others.

Never used the TRANSPOSE function, interesting. Another option is to go to the file menu Edit>Paste Special>Paste Transposed.

Did you select all the columns and rows before the use of the special paste transpose?

Its been so long since the Spreadsheets videos, I don't remember
