  7. Why can you no longer set the y-intercept to zero? This is a needed function in many science classes. Please bring it back.

  13. Need to be able to search comments.

    When editing in a browser, you can't see the cell comments - clicking on the comment opens ALL comments in a separate pane - with a scroll bar. there needs to be a comment/cell search function here. My spreadsheet has over 100 comments.. it's taking several minutes to keep scrolling down looking for the small feint "dm 55" etc.

  16. You shoul dbe able to reduce the size of the file view in the pop up window that the attachment opens in.

    When you select an attachment in the email a window pops up to preview. If the file font is too large there is no way to reduce the size of the file and you have to download it and adjust it.

    This is unnecessary and should be an option in the preview to increase and reduce the view size to fit in the preview window.

  17. merging multiple cells

    what about when merging multiple cells, it is only merged, if the text is cut off on the boarder, to keep column length equal, and the cell in the row below is merged.

  18. When I open the excel from Online to desktop version. The online browser should close.

    After I open the excel from online to desktop version. The online version should close because it creates 2 copies of the excel on my machine. When we have to work with multiple excels this creates confusion as we see duplicate excels on the laptop.

  20. Allow Users to Edit Ranges should function in Excel Online

    This functionality would be incredible for several things my office would like to implement if it worked online. Maybe I'm doing something incorrectly but it appears other users have been having the same issues. When I open an excel online file in the desktop app and give specific users permission to edit locked ranges it works when editing on my computer in the desktop app but not when editing on the web app.
