  1. freeze a row

    I would like to keep the top 2 rows displayed as I scroll down. Is there a way to do this? I could do that in my old apple spreadsheet.

  4. Office 365 version of excel

    On the Office 365 version of excel, when you try to make the columns a different size, it doesn't show the size of the columns by number (ex. 10.25). On the regular version of Excel, it does.

  11. Add the capability to impose logic on Excel Survey questions.

    I love that surveys can be created in Excel online. I would use this almost daily if I could format the question logic in the same way that Google Forms allows. The ability to add labels and separate pages is also really necessary in order to make sophisticated surveys that collect complex information.

  20. Prevent ending punctuation neutrals from being moved to beginning of text (Fix CSS "direction: rtl" coding)

    I embedded an Excel file into an online WordPress page via OneDrive. Wherever cell text is right justified and overruns the cell width, any ending punctuation neutrals (i.e. colon, question mark, etc) get moved to the beginning of the text. I believe this is because Microsoft codes their CSS for such spillover cells as "direction: rtl". It doesn’t appear I can override this with local CSS since it's running in an iframe, so my only workaround has been to avoid the ending punctuation or make the cells wider to eliminate the overrun. Do these spillover cells need to be formatted…
