  1. Unlocking only specific cells from write protected worksheet using excel javascript API is stopped working

    I am using office 365 and Excel online (Build 16.0.9403.1875).

    I am creating Microsoft Excel online Add-ins, using Excel Javascript API.

    I have a requirement like write protection of entire sheet, except few cells (Range).

    The functionality is achieved and it was working fine and recently. it started breaking like, it is completely protecting the sheet.

    I did not get any error too.

    So, I referred Format protection API, but while debugging, the ‘locked’ property is of no effect in action.

    Thanks,
    Raghuvaran

  10. Insert Link - remove initial http from URL

    It takes 3 hotkeys to insert link:
    Add link (Ctrl+K), Select all (Ctrl+A), Paste (Ctrl+V).

    I want 2 hotkeys:
    Add link (Ctrl+K), Paste (Ctrl+V).

    Auto-filled http is useless, and any copy-pasted URL is now appended to it, producing invalid URL.

  12. Present useful error messages

    Error: Exception of type 'Microsoft.DataProxy.Exceptions.HybridException' was thrown.. The exception was raised by the IDbCommand interface.

  17. Publish Bug tracking of this software

    We need to have a public Bug tracking to report issues and see if they are getting worked on. All we see are NEW IDEAS but the existing ones sometimes don't work or there are some bad functional issues that get ignored.

  19. After making a selection from a drop down list that we created; Excel starts shaking up & down

    My team at work, uses Excel in SharePoint for almost everything that we need to track. We've all (16+ people) have been having an issue. While editing Excel in the Browser, it randomly shakes up and down, the best way to describe it is the sheet moves up and down a few rows, really fast). One of my peers noticed the sheet starts 'shaking' after selecting a word in a drop down list of the sheet. To fix the issue, we have to completely close out of the Excel Tracker and then re-open it... Which causes a lot of extra…
