        • fix problem with page up / down scrolling

          I hit Page Down and see I'm on line 64; then I hit Page Up and suddenly, I'm on line 14; if I hit Page Down again, it goes back to 64, ad infinitum -- the app skips the several pages in between. If I use the arrow keys, I can get back in control and get to the rows the app was jumping over.

            • Striketrhough single words

              When I try to strikethrough a word in the browser, all the content in the cell gets modified, instead of the word I want. Could you improve this? Thanks!

                    • Don't show file size limitations while opening in OneDrive. Its so confusing, opening it in Excel and wondering if its saved online or not.

                      Atleast get inspired by the Google sheets. See how seamlessly it shows up online documents in the browser itself, without any fuss about file size , easy to define permission sets etc

                      • Format dates consistently

                        You can stop Excel INCONSISTENTLY formatting some dates as numbers, some in US format and some in UK format - even within the same column! It makes Excel UTTERLY USELESS, which is why I saved in Open Office format - which Excel online now can't open.

                            • Correct bug that sets formatting to US when editing online and prevents correct setting of data format - Change to UK but sets to Armenian

                              The date formatting when editing in Excel online changes the format of a date field to US even though it was set to UK when created offline and uploaded. When you try to change the formatting back to UK, it seems to accept your instruction but the formatting displayed is not the one you chose. If you check the format again, it has been changed to Armenian.
                              You have been aware of this bug since July last year and it still hasn't been addressed. This is a huge inconvenience to people in the UK as some dates may have been…

                                • Don't bug me with a dialog for a shared document every time my laptop goes offline. Ok to display a message in-pane

                                  I get a popup for 'session expired' when my laptop goes to sleep that I have to click on in order to continue; would be better for it to signal the issue in-pane or not even bother me till I try to do something with the document. If you have 5 documents open in different tabs, is this going to freeze every one of them till I click Ok? This is not what Google docs does...

                                  • When scrolling down one line in Web Browser, Excel randomly scrolls 800-1000 rows down

                                    Example: When I'm on row 5, and need to scroll to row 6 or 7, the sheet will suddenly be on row 800 to 1000. I've tried using the arrows on the keyboard, clicking and dragging the side scroll (on the browser), and the scroll on my mouse. The most recent change I've made is added the top row Freeze Pane.
