  3. Row height adjusts for merged cells as well

    Very simple: unmerged cells, when wrap is enabled, result in the row height adjusting accordingly. Wrapped cells do not, which is a formatting gap.

    Please can merged cells, enabled for text wrap, adjust the row height just like for a single cell meeting the same conditions.

  4. Make standard colors primary instead of Theme Colors.

    Have the option to have Standard Colors and its gradients as the working colors or have Theme Colors as working colors. I prefer the Standard colors as they match my other applications and the Theme colors do not.

  5. Add the option to use formulas for conditional formatting

    What we really need is consistency between Excel 365 and the desktop version. I love the Xlookup function, and since it is only available in 365, I am stuck working on the web. That means that I need other options, such as using formulas for conditional formatting and more color options, on the 365 version as well. I read that more color options are available in 365, but I haven't seen them yet.

  6. I HAVE FOUND A WAY!!

    After a few years of using excel and uploading the excel schedules on dropbox (for work purposes), our text titles were too long for the columns, which meant some letters went underneath each title and it was so untidy !

    I tried searching to see if there was a way around this as there was no text orientation option.... BUT finally, we have sussed a way so the text direction goes down (at a 90 degree angle), please see attached.

    It was quite simple so thought I would share, in case others wanted to also try this.

    If you go…

  9. Include more keyboard shortcuts e.g. Insert Row, enable ALT key

    Please enable In Excel on MS Teams CTRL +1 to access formatting commands.Please enable the ALT key as well to access menues. I cannot use keyboard shortcuts to insert rows and columns. Please consider shortcuts for inserting rows and columns - CTRL SHIFT + for example.Many of us who have used Excel for 25 years use keyboard commands to save our limbs from mouse induced strain and because they are so quick. Please consider these.

  10. Need for multiple text colors in single cell. Not possible in browser

    Need for multiple text colors in single cell. Not possible in browser

    I am trying to track copy changes using color in an easily sharable document, but Excel doesn't offer this feature in the browser version. It works in a standalone doc. The convenience of sharing a linked doc is helpful.

  11. Change the autocorrect options in Excel for the web

    We should be able to change the autocorrect options in Excel for the web. For instance I want to turn off the auto hyperlinking, but I am unable to do so.

  12. Please fix the "broken" wrapping format in Excel for the web. When cells with wrap format are updated in a table, the row height collapses.

    Bug: since recent release in Excel for Web, cells with wrap format within a table collapse to default row height when edited. Row height only restored either via Ctrl+F5 page refresh, or toggle wrap format. Workaround is to set a default row height showing multiple lines, then the "collapse" is not such an issue if cell has a lot of text.

  14. Make views (specifically auto-column width) the same as the native desktop app

    View/formatting -- in particular, auto column width -- does not function the same in the web app as it does in the desktop app. For example, create a spreadsheet in Tahoma 10pt font with word wrap enabled, and put the following text into a cell (without quotes): "CAP00000009"

    Now auto-size the column in desktop app (at 100% magnification) -- it goes to 86px. Open the file in web app (at 100% magnification) ==> you can't see the whole column.

    If you auto-size the column in web app, it goes to 87px. Why is there a difference? Auto-size should give the…

  15. Offer 2-3 color options for text on the menu bar for quick/easy application.

    Another color option or two as default on the menu bar can make for faster application of different colors.

  16. Bugs i datoformatering

    Dato i kortversjon fungerer ikke som den skal. Prøv f.eks 10/9/2020.
    Og så ønsker jeg mulighet for egne celleformater i Web-versjonen også.
