  1. More fill colors

    The color choices are limited, we like the color wheel that is in our desktop version. We assign colors for various catergories and there aren't enough contrasting colors to choose from. Please add the colors pallette back!!

  2. Make lables for charts work in excel online

    When you hover over different points on a chart in Excel you can see the values of those points. This does not work with Excel online. Because of this I will often have to open the file in Excel as opposed to just using online.

  4. Make it possible to change the colours of bars in charts using right-click

    In the online version of Excel it isn't possible to change the colour of bars in charts or graphs on the chart menu. You can't right-click to change them either. I use charts a lot in my work and need to be able to change the colours as easily as I can in the desktop version of Excel

  5. Zooming In & Out

    Would be nice to have the keystroke shortcuts available for Excel Spreadsheets...sometimes there is so much data that one needs to zoom in and out in order to work efficiently.

  7. TRENDLINES ASAP

    Without trendlines this program is essentially rendered useless in academic applications.

  9. Graph Problems

    1. Why the **** doesn't pressing control and dragging the mouse select multiple different cells, why the **** isn't this a thing? LibreOffice, a free program does this.
    2. Another superiority of LibreCalc: 3-D graphs, I mean I don't even understand why you offer this to students without these simple modifications. A free excel like program offers this and this garbage, so called free online excel version doesn't even do that? I can't even label a series properly in this thing. If I didn't have a class that required the use of Excel and only Excel I wouldn't even bother!

  13. System process control chart functionality. Used a lot in science, engineering, statistics and manufacturing

    System process control chart functionality. Used a lot in science, engineering, statistics and manufacturing. Very difficult to produce in Excel, and the addons available are difficult to implement at a business level. Something like Winchart, which is a very simple piece of software, would be great.

  15. Let us make charts by defining the X axis and the Y axis

    Let us just be able to say we want this range of data for the X axis and that one for the Y. The wizard is constantly doing stupid things, forcing you to guess the format which will produce the right graph and make special tables so the wizard will be able to produce the graph you want.

    It's basic to charting. This is the X. Why have to guess if the wizard is going to decide you wanted years on the Y axis and your labels on the X and population nowhere to be seen?

  17. Linking Charts

    Hi there
    I hope this message finds you well
    I think it would be a great idea that users have the opportunity to link charts from one file in another
    For example to link a chart from Excel in a Word file
    That would make it easier to upload information and summarize it, especially information including numbers.
    Thanks a lot for your time
    Have a wonderful day :D
