  2. Filtering should refresh focus in the document

    In Excel Online if we perform a search and afterwards filter for specific fields we are shown the lower part of the Workbook, many times consisting of blank cells.
    Desired behaviour here would be to have the focus in the Workbook shifted towards the top of the Document after performing a Filtering.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Have a file with multiple columns: Number [1..200]; Cities; Status[free busy].
    2. Search for 150. So the focus goes to the lower part of the page.
    3. Filter for one of the Cities.
    4. Filter for free in the 3rd Column.

    Result: The focus…

  3. Ability to view full cell content in Reading View

    If the content of a text cell has not been wrapped, in reading view, there is no easy way to see the content of that cell if it is really long. If you made the Cell content bar visible but not editable that would be massively better, would also allow understanding of formulae used in a cell.

  5. Shrink the size of the top info banner and the Home, File, Insert, etc.. banners so we can see and use more of the page we are working on.

    Please shrink the size of the top info banner and the Home, Insert, File, pop up banners, so we can see more of what we are working on. Would be great if it was more like the original Excel program, but I understand work in progress. There is just too much at the top with limited space to work in atm. Thanks.

  6. cursor visibility

    Please improve the online edition for cursor visibility? We still have a poorly visible cursor (green and has no editable options) in Office Excel 365 due to the restrictions on not allowing Windows schemes it appears. It may seem not to be a problem when looking at a simple sheet. But for very large complex sheet with colour this is major issue. This is a problem for partial colour blindness, and especially where the cursor must be used on coloured sheets. No contrasting colour is applied. Can we have an option to have -
    1). A larger cell cursor line…

  7. Lock/Unlocking worksheet ordering.

    I am always reordering the worksheets by accident when changing sheets. We should have a way to lock and unlock the worksheet bar to avoid dragging them out of order.

  8. Zoom % should be actual

    The zoom % in Excel online is always 100%. It would be good to load the file with the actual view size saved in the file. Secondly, there is no zoom option available in the screen. We have to use the browser zoom option to do the same.

  10. In SharePoint's File Viewer web part, you should be able to change the "view" size of the file you are working with.

    In SharePoint's File Viewer web part, you should be able to change the "view" size of the file you are working with. Some spreadsheets are so "wide", the window in the browser cannot accomodate, especially with frozen ranges. Like in excel where you can change the view size, you should be able to do this in the File viewer web app.

  13. Please make opening files in {Excel,Powerpoint,Word} a user-configurable default action

    Whenever I open documents on sharepoint, I prefer to open these using the desktop applications.

    I'd appreciate if the choice of application (i.e. desktop or office online) is left to the user instead of enforced by aggressive "office online" marketing...

  17. Add mutliple window sessions
