        • Needs more formatting options available in the online version

          Add more formatting and editing options (cell styles, other missing features).

          • Add text rotation option

            Excel Online lacks one important feature: text rotation option is not implemented and even opening existing xlsx file with the text formatted as rotated is not showing it correctly

                  • Excel Desktop vs Excel Online - online version should have all/most of the same features

                    There are several functions that don't work the same in the online version vs desktop. Below are a few that are particularly frustrating to me so far:

                    ~ Paste/Formatting - When pasting into the online version, the format doesn't stay.

                    ~ Sorting - There are very limited sorting options in the online version.

                    ~ Copying data. I have about 300 lines of data that's about 10 columns wide and am unable to copy it so that I can paste it into another document and sort it the way I need (since online version has limited options for sorting, as mentioned…

                      • X and Y axis scaling

                        Make it possible to manually adjust axes scale. This is extremely important for most applications.

                          In past versions, we could have two colors of font in the same cell in Excel. Please make that available in Excel online!

                          • Please enable Formatting of Borders!

                            Cell formatting has NO provisions for changing border line style and colors. This is very frustrating and is making Excel online very limited and virtually useless for my employee schedule sheets.

                                Add more conditional formatting control; e.g.

                                > cell merging;

                                • Text Rotation

                                  Having text rotation is a MUST HAVE. We recently migrated over from the Google platform and many of our spreadsheets use this function. It makes it impossible to see the headers.

                                  • right align

                                    When right align is applied to a cell,
                                    and the column width is narrower than the text (without word wrap),
                                    then editing the text starts putting characters you type at the end of the text string at the START of the field....

                                    This also happens if the text is edited while the column is wider than the text string, then the column width is reduced
                                    The only way to fix this is merging cells. This is an anomaly and needs to be fixed (not an issue in Excel Desktop)

                                    • When selecting all rows to autosize, restrict it to what is on screen or the first 1,000 rows.

                                      When selecting all rows to autosize, restrict it to what is on screen or the first 1,000 rows. Excel freezes currently when autosizing if all rows are selected. See ticket 12995580 for confirmation that this action was repeatable by your technician.

                                      • Conditional Formatting select multiple rules

                                        To delete / manage rules you need to do one by one which is very slow if you have many (inadvertently due to copy pasting cells). Selecting multiples at once would be a big help. Thanks

                                        • Conditional Formatting per line

                                          I have formula rule where one cell in a table = certain value the whole row on table changes formatting per conditional rule.
                                          However it's a pain to set up for larger tables, you have to change the cell to relative value (which sometimes causes real bugs) for the row number only, then copy paste formatting for each row manually.
                                          Surely there's an easier way! Thanks
