    • Custom Insert>shapes

      As a Civil Engineer, I use spreadsheets to produce calculations. Diagrams form an integral part of the calculations, and there are several simple shapes that I find myself having to draw over and over again, from the limited "building blocks' of the shapes built into Excel.

      It would be cool if custom sets of shapes could be added (e.g. for us Civil Engineers, 'I' beams, bolts, support symbols, "north" symbol, etc.).

      For Electrical Engineers, a downloadable set of Elecrical symbols, and so on.

          Can you give some more detail on what you are looking for?

          Excel Online will already show pictures (JPG, PNG, etc,) that are contained in the file.

          Do you mean shapes? (rectangle, circle, etc.)

          Or, do you mean something else?

          Thanks,
          Dan [MS]

        • Preserve text boxes in Excel Online

          And support text box linking to worksheet cells (at least don't remove the links created in Excel Desktop). This would help us a lot.

                • Increase the width of the scroll bar

                  Scroll bar is tiny and hard to grab. Please increase the width.
