  5. Allow user to set margins for page and printed page.

    2. Although Canada is a metric country (sort of), the default paper sizes are the same as the US. Canada does not use metric sized paper. Please adjust the default

  8. Provide an option to disable Excel Online and default to desktop version

    Excel Online continues to disappoint new users and is hampering adoption of both SharePoint and Teams. Even if the library and site collection are set to "Open in client application", every Excel file that isn’t opened directly form the library in SharePoint or files tab in Teams, opens in the garbage online version, then has to be change to desktop, then user has to close the useless window of the online version.

    There is no option to open in the desktop version for a file attached to a planner task embedded in Teams, so then it is either jump through…

  9. Keyboard Shortcut for typing in superscript & subscript, just like bold, italics, and underline

    If I am working in an excel spreadsheet (also in word for that matter), I can click on any cell and hit Ctrl + B, and everything I'm now typing in that cell is Bold. Ctrl + I does the same thing for italics, and Ctrl + U does the same thing for underlined. As a scientist and engineer I work a lot with formulas. Therefore, I would like to be able to hit Ctrl + "insert button here" and now I am typing in Superscript. Same thing for Subscript. Pick a letter that isn't in use, cause I'm pretty…

  10. Do not automatically place the Find and Replace Box over the data the user wants to replace.

    Remove the bell that rings after Excel has carried out a Find and Replace action, and the request for confirmation that comes with it.

  16. side by side

    There should be a horizontal 'side by side' option similar to the vertical side by side on the desktop version. Effectively a 'top and bottom'.

    In our example, we display 2 worksheets from 1 workbook on a monitor. A lot of screen space is wasted with all of the tabs, headers etc. Displaying 2 worksheets top and bottom (or side by side as the circumstance requires) would be faster, cleaner and more beneficial.

  20. CSV functionality on Excel Online

    I am trying to import a contact list for Forms which requires CSV. I could not find an easy way to convert my workbook online to CSV. So I needed to use the desktop app.
