    • 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.

      • Using custom colors from a theme - bug in Excel 2016?

        When you select a custom theme which contains custom colors, you can used those colors initially only with shapes. By doing the following you can use them with cell formatting as well:
        1. Select a theme with custom colors
        2. Insert a shape
        3. Change the fill color with a custom color from the ribbon "home"
        4. Select a cell and you can change the color to a custom color as well

        If you do not follow steps 2..4 you can not use custom colors. Even more worse if you follow all steps and you want to use the context…

          • improve copy-paste functionality in Excel Online

            Copy-paste an HTML web page table into Excel offline. You get a nicely parsed table in Excel offline But the same HTML table (copied from the same web page) pasted onto Excel Online causes all the data to be pasted into cells along a single column.

                • The ability to delete columns/row permanently like google sheets. Having several thousands columns/rows on the x and y axis is not great UX.

                  The ability to delete columns/row permanently like google sheets. Having several thousands columns/rows on the x and y axis is not great UX. Google sheets does this perfectly!

                  • Be able to select and change border colour and weight/style like in Excel or Google Sheets

                    I can open an existing Excel document in Excel online and I find some of the border formatting has changed. In my instance it is from a dotted line to a solid line. There is no option to change this, from the formatting.

                    I have the same document open in Google sheets and this is not an issue and the line style can be changed if required and copies over as in the original document.
