  2. Leave the f'ing leading zeros!!

    If my data has leading zeros, then I want leading zeros!.... How is that so hard to understand!?!... Make truncating leading zeros an optional setting, not the default.

  9. La validación de datos tiene deficiencias

    Deben corregir la validación de datos, ya que solo valida cuando se escribe sobre la celda, pero no hace la validación cuando pegan un valor desde el portapapeles, así que los capturistas pueden evadir la validación presionando copiar y después pegar, así pueden introducir cualquier valor invalido y la validación lo permite sin problemas.

  14. Bring back F3 = Find Next

    Even in Windows F3 means "Search". Why in Excel and Word this useful key does not work anymore?

    It looks like now it is Shift+F4. My fingers will get arthritis from pressing this combination all day.

    Also I suppose to be able to change the hotkey but now the Keyboard Shortcut option in the "Customize Ribbon" has disappeared.

  15. Double Click or F2 Cells in a Protected Workbook - see the cells used in a formula

    Please allow users to double click a formula in a protected workbook to see which cells are pulled into the formula. I still want to know how the formula is working even though I can't change it.

  17. Default Note Size and Shortcut Keys for Resizing Note and Note Panel

    The note shows up too small. I would like a much larger default note size. I see no way to set a default size.

    Along the same lines, I would like to be able to resize the note with the keyboard. Resizing with the mouse is tricky and time consuming.

    Somewhat related, I would like the option of not having the user's name at the start of the note. I do no share the workbook and putting my name at the start of each note takes up space or requires delection.

  18. Protect Workbook-scoped names against edits when the workbook is protected

    The Protect Workbook button in the Review tab is great for preventing the addition/deletion/renaming of sheets and the modification of Power Query queries. This protection should also apply to names (in the Name Manager) with the "Workbook" scope, similar to how names with a sheet scope cannot be edited when that sheet is protected.

  19. Filling series for a cell containing "m³" leads to strange results

    If you have a cell that contains "m³" (without quotes) and you use the fill handle to fill cells below or to the right, you will get "m132", "m133", etc. Similarly, if you fill cells above or to the left, you will get "m130", "m129", etc. "m³" acts as if its value is "m131", which is clearly incorrect behaviour.

    There are probably many other examples where filling series acts weird. Please fix this. There are 2 acceptable solutions. One is to simply copy "m³" to the destination cells. The other is to treat the "³" like "3" and assume the…

  20. Add 64-bit Unix time as a data type

    Excel currently represents dates, times, and datetimes as double-precision floating-point numbers that store the number of days since a particular date. This has many problems:

    • The user will encounter precision issues when they deal with times and datetimes. This issue only gets worse for datetimes over time as a greater number of the limited significant digits are required for storing the date, leaving fewer digits for the time. The precision issues require users to set up their equality tests with a tolerance in mind and generate their timestamps in a numerically stable way. This is too much detail for…
