  1. Vertical cell allignment

    We have project sheets that use cell alignment to make the data more readable and intuitive. The alignment is preserved for editing in Excel, but Excel Online just keeps the text horizontal and unreadable.

        • Make Ctrl+B, Ctrl+U, Ctrl+I work even when you are only formatting some of the text in a cell (as oppossed to the entire cell).

          The hot keys for Bold, Underline and Italic formatting is not available when trying to format words (any substring vs. the entire cell) within a cell in Excel Online. Please make this available.

            • Use Office templates in new sheets instead of creating new workbooks each time

              It would be great to be able to use the templates for a new sheet on an existing workbook instead of always having to create a new workbook. I like to use the budget template for each month but instead of being able to place it in the same workbook just different sheets I have to create a new workbook for each month to use the budget template.

              • Excel Online Surveys, make them bit more formatted.

                The ability to place textboxes(..etc) side by side, not just on top of eachother.

                  • Add the capability to impose logic on Excel Survey questions.

                    I love that surveys can be created in Excel online. I would use this almost daily if I could format the question logic in the same way that Google Forms allows. The ability to add labels and separate pages is also really necessary in order to make sophisticated surveys that collect complex information.

                    • Freeze Panes

                      I can't seem to find "freeze panes" in Excel, am I missing something? If not, can you please have it added back in? I use this quite frequently when creating spreadsheets. Thank you

                      • freeze a row

                        I would like to keep the top 2 rows displayed as I scroll down. Is there a way to do this? I could do that in my old apple spreadsheet.

                          • Excel Online Edit in Browser version has Double underline in font but not strike through.

                            Excel Online Edit in Browser version has Double underline in font but not strike through. This does not make sense.

                              • Increase capacity of dropdowns

                                As a manager with the Ga Dept of Ed, I routinely poll all of the school systems. I would love to use Excel Online Survey tool- but there is a limit as to how many selections I can have in the dropdown. I cannot get all 190 districts on the dropdown - which would require me to have 3 dropwdowns- which prevents me from requiring a seletion.

                                  • Add more vibrant colours in the selection.

                                    When I fill colour in the online Excel cell, I only have limited option of selection. I want to use more colourful colours like existing Excel products. In the online version has a limited option and they don't look as good as I want it to be.
                                    I found that I often download the file, edit the file offline and upload the file again. This is not a problem if you are working on a project by yourself, but when you are sharing the same file with so many others, it becomes problematic. Can you please add some more options? …

                                      • Formatting data - Time delay

                                        When any formatting operation such as Middle align, Wrap text etc. is done, considerable amount of time is taken by the client to perform those changes. But, no 'Loading' message is displayed. The screen looks freezed for some amount of time. Can you please consider this comment and perform the essential changes?

                                        • Form formatting is not up to mark !

                                          There should be option to set questions side by side also so we can decrease length of the forms
