  1. Colour palette changes

    I have found a post from microsoft support saying that the colour palette has now been changed to match offline versions... (link below) This i **** true. It has not been changed. Or if it has there is some trick to accessing it that I don't know. The online colour palette is not enough. Can you please make the offline colours available or show us how to access them. Thanks

  3. Drag and drop rows or colums to rearrange them

    You should be able to click on a row or column head to drag and drop them lets say row 5 could be moved ontop of row 1 to make it primary.

  4. Enable retention of file type when downloading from Excel on the web

    Whenever a .csv file is shared from OneDrive or SharePoint and opened via Excel Web App, it automatically converts it to an .xlsx file.

    I want to be able to download the file and retain its original format as .csv and not as an .xlsx file.

  8. Online Excel should have capability as that of Offline Excel

    User should be able format data in Online Excel as that of Offline. Online excel should allow user to copy data from offline excel & paste it in online one.

    Speed of formatting can be improved. Sometimes it happens that formatting goes wrong due it's performance & we have to remove/undo our work done.

  9. can formatting include format for IP address and MAC address.

    can the format for hexadecimal pair 1-f be separated by colons and octets 0-255 by period / full stop be included as a formatting tool for format cells, as you do for phone numbers or dates.
    we use Excel spreadsheets as forms for identifying MAC and IP address and linking them to a device.

  12. Freezing Cells

    Please bring back the old method of freezing cells. In both the vertical and horizontal planes on the same worksheet. The old method was more functional and easier to use.

  14. I Love excell But man is it difficult to work on certain aspects of my job; I suggest an auto correction with the ' and functions use

    I support Including liability on users for errors in mathematics and allowing the ' function to allow functions to add any number for long decimal numbers and their true forum as it indeed is important to many high end job occupations!

  16. Don't change formats/looks of the toolbars - it affects productivity

    There was no need to change the current look and feel of the toolbars. In fact, it was a step backward in usability.
