  3. Help with resolving unsupported features.

    Provide background information and helpful ideas for resolving unsupported features. A statment of disabled features and requiring to save/open a version to edit does nothing to facilitate use of application for online editing.

  8. Use of Filters in Protected worksheets

    In protected sheets, Desktop Excel does not allow us to remove Data filters, but just use them. In online Excel, it allows us to remove filters but not reapply filters since the sheet is protected. This is a Bug

  10. - key changes focus in a find entry box and causes next characters to type over last cell. (intermittent long term bug)

    when I use ctrl-F and am entering something with a - in it the pressing of the - moves me out of the find field and back to typing over the last cell I was on in the spreadsheet. It does not happen every time but it does happen every day. I use several different pc's in different locations. I always am using chrome. It is a consistant issue on all pc's Again it happens about 2-5% of the time... It is not every time the - key is pressed in a find.

    Excel online has no capability to read what is in a cell, if the text overflows the edges of the cell. This basically means Excel online is useless and you always need to open the app if you want to read the text in a cell

  17. Allow selecting hidden cells between freeze pane boundary and next visible row/column

    We have a large spreadsheet with freeze panes on to keep the top row and A:K columns visible. Each column to the left of K includes a date in row 1. As the dates pass, we hide the column as the data is typically no longer relevant. See attached example.xlsx. As you can imagine, many years of data results in many hidden columns.

    When editing, sometimes we need to unhide the previous week or two. This is no problem in the Excel desktop app. Ctrl-G - goto P:Q - Home tab - Cells - Format - Visibility - Hide &…
