  2. In Excel allow modifying the decimal separator within the web application.

    In Excel (Office Web) allow to modify the decimal separator within the web application. Because it does not always take the system configuration, and not all countries use the same decimal nomenclature.

  6. scientific notation

    Give an option to not format large numbers as Scientific notation (all workbooks). 99% of users don't use it and just get annoyed by it.

    Add more functions to Excel on the web, such as diagonal lines, word wrapping and insertion of text boxes

  8. About display of the “Shrink to fit” option on Excel Online

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    "縮小して全体を表示する" オプションの Excel Online 上での表示について
    About display of the “Shrink to fit” option on Excel Online


    ■Description(内容):
    Excel クライアントにてセルの書式設定で "縮小して全体を表示する" オプションを有効化している、且つ文字の方向を縦にしている場合、Excel Online 上でセルの幅に合わせて文字が拡大されます。
    以前は文字数が表示上限を超えない場合、文字の方向を横にしたとき同様に Excel Online 上で設定した文字サイズで表示されていましたが現在は動作が異なります。
    文字の方向を縦にしている場合はセルの縦の長さに併せて文字が拡大され、拡大された文字幅に対して横幅が狭い場合は文字が途切れて表示されます。
    クライアント上での表示と異なるためこの動作の修正を希望します。

    If you have the Excel client formatting setting “Shrink to fit” enabled and text orientation set to vertical, on Excel Online the text will expand to match the cell width.
    Previously if the number of characters did not exceed the limits of what could be displayed, the text would be displayed at the size set in Excel Online in the same way as happens for horizontal text,…

  9. Bug in Online excel : Column 30(60, 90 etc) do not overflow text

    I am using online Excel O365, the bug does not exist in desktop excel on Win10

    Generally, in excel, if the cell(s) to the right have no formula/content, the content overflows.

    But in online excel, in the cells on the 30th (60th, 90th etc) column, the content does not overflow.

    I tried rebooting, and using a incognito/private window and relogin into my O365 account. Also, tried on my wife's laptop, her O365 login.. same issue. Tried it on my personal Microsoft(non-365) account, same issue.

    How to replicate
    * Open a new workbook in Online excel
    * In column AD row…

  11. Need to be able to have more than 1 colour of text in a cell.

    Multiple colleagues of mine update our excel documents online. We usually use a traffic light system to show what stage each point in the calander is on which is not possible using one drive as it only lets us use 1 font colour per cell. This means we'd be better off working on a desktop version and sharing documents instead of updating on One Drive.

  13. hyperlink on single words like google sheets, formatting, and hyperlink interface file directory with link


    1. URL can be linked to single words in google sheets, thus allowing to click the cell without navigation, or better looking format.


    2. conditional formatting if it cell contains hyperlink, to prevent other conditional formatting from undoing the normal hyperlink formatting


    3. the hyperlink interface that can look at files like in the desktop. But use the URL link instead of file Path link. So folder can move and not break linking and open correctly from all interfaces (instead of thinking its a download if done wrong)

  14. Need a button in the ribbon or Quick Access Toolbar for "Center Across Selection"

    Merging cells makes copying and pasting of those cells difficult, so I almost never merge cells. Instead, I use "Center Across Selection" extensively, but it requires 4 mouse clicks or 9 keyboard clicks. Please provide a standard button for this in the ribbon, or at least a command icon that I can add to my Quick Access Toolbar.

  16. Be able to change formatting for single word in a cell (Ctrl H)

    Ctrl H - change format for a single word within a cell rather than apply the format change to the entire cell's content.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. New Bug Found with: Locked sheets that have Format cells enabled

    A new bug has appeared in online Excel (was introduced in the last month or so):

    When a Worksheet is Locked, but with Format cells allowed, cell Interior color cannot be changed.

    Additional Information:
    This worked previously (i.e. interior color could be changed), and continues to work in desktop Excel.

    Other cell formatting (front, bold, etc.) still works ok.
