  2. right click paste options

    Currently in Excel desktop when you copy something to your clipboard the right click menu includes a Paste Special drop down menu, as well as icons for paste, paste values, paste formula, etc etc

    In Excel online the only way you can access Paste Special options is the long way round on the Home menu. Can the Paste Special drop down menu be added to the right click (or better still the icons)?

  3. Trendline with Excel Online

    Excel online needs the capability of adding a trendline to a graph. How is this not possible when it should be a basic function of any excel program? With my present job there's really no point in using excel online when it can't add a trendline. If google sheets can add trendlines then excel online should be able to also.

  4. Fix the Regional Settings mess

    A lot of people are having issues with Excel Online regional settings, whether it comes to dates or formulas language.
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/how-to-set-excel-online-regional-settings/76c7a892-7d00-4969-9561-7455a5e1307a

    (just a few examples)

    Changing the locale of a spreadsheet shouldn't be something so complex that we need to post for help on a forum (to eventually get no answer anyway).

    In Google Sheets it goes like Files > Spreadsheet Settings > Language, and that's how simple, straightforward, intuitive and clear it should be. No settings that comes from other settings in another part of the maze of apps from Office 365.

  5. Setting to Block Excel Online

    I have some complex excel files with Macros and references to other spreadsheets.

    They are stored in a Sharepoint portal which exposes them to Excel online.

    As soon as somebody opens them in online it breaks the external spreadsheet links and breaks some macros functions.

    And since the macro doesn't work in Online would be great to have a slider, Block from Excel online. It would start to load online then see this flag make no changes and force local excel to open and download.

  6. Include table expansion entries in drop down list.

    I have a table that auto expands when I type a new entry at the bottom, but the drop down list that is linked to that table doesn't update to include the new entry. A feature to allow drop down list to auto-update based on new table entries would be great! :)

  8. It would be a huge help is the Find function worked and it does not work in the present.

    I input hundreds of figures and have to ensure no duplicates or need to verify a figure was input. Scrolling up and down is "loads" of fun but it would be faster and more accurate to be able to use the "Find" function.
    And is there any way one person can hide columns just on your screen? while others are working on the hidden columns? It is a pain to have to scroll back and forth across 12 to 15 columns 2 or 3 times each input session.

  14. larger number support

    Excel is still stuck in the 1990's as far as number support. Numbers greater than 15 digits lose subsequent digits. DEC2HEX, HEX2DEC and the whole family of related functions can't handle larger values (over ~5bytes). I find that I have to use Windows Calculator to do these more complex values -- it's hard when the free calculator has greater range than what should be a premiere calculation tool.

  19. While commenting in a cell, it takes unusual time for Excel to prepare

    I think the problem is when Excel is trying to show and revive all the comments of other cells. Instead of this time-consuming process, Excel can simply shows a comment in a cell that the user has decided to modify or write for the first time.

    The comments are appearing and the cell that is needed does not stop moving, and exactly jumping up or down!
