  1. Copy multiple selections into Clipboard

    I've always wanted the option to copy multiple selections to the clipboard. When you paste, you'd be presented with the option of everything on your clipboard, to be able to pick which selection(s) you want to paste.

      • The STOCK data type

        The STOCK data type gives inaccurate data for ETP/PRD and for EPD.
        Also transposed SFIX and SCHW. See attached Workbook.

                • Allow an option to open in full-screen mode

                  Very rarely do I need to 'shrink' the application to view other stuff. lately, however, excel (2016) has been opening in a small (unusable) window that needs expansion before I can do any work.

                  Either:
                  Allow an option in Options to force full-screen display on opening.
                  or
                  fix the program so that it reopens in the state it was last displayed,

                  • Copied Worksheet with local Hyperlinks, links to new Worksheet, not the source Worksheet

                    I have a template Worksheet that I create multiple copies of. The template has hyperlinks to various locations on the template sheet, defined as Local Range Names. When I copy the template Worksheet, I would like the Hyperlinks on the new sheet to link to the Local Named Ranges on the new sheet, and not to the Named Ranges on the original template sheet.

                    • DateTime type should be independent of locale (locale should just be formatting)

                      When copying date values from a Dutch Excel sheet to an English one values became incorrect or invalid. (E.g. 13-02-2018, 02-05-2018 get mixed up).

                      Suggestions:
                      1. datetime type/cell value should be locale independent
                      2. easier conversion from string to datetime (datevalue(a2, "dd-mm-yyyy")) to help fix this manually
                      3. protect cells from invalid datetime values
                      4. copy paste datetime across locale should work :)

                      A similar issue, could occur on currency, e.g. 1.000,00 vs 1,000.00

                          • IoT data streaming (simplified)

                            Integrate MS Data Streamer (or similar technology) directly into Excel. Make it super easy to pull in a live stream of IoT data from various sensors, and mark how many data points to keep on a rolling basis (so kind of like dynamic charts, except instead of only taking the newest data, the user might not care about storing more than the last NN data points from an IoT feed in some cases). Allow multiple different sources; use case: one worksheet could show a rolling 100 data points of temperature sourced from 50 different sensors, all feeding into "living" charts…

                              • çalışma sekmelerinin bir başlık altında gruplandırma

                                çalışma sayfasında birden fazla çalışma konusu altında çalışma sekmeleri mevcut. Çalışmanın performansını artırmak açısından sekmeleri ana sekme başlığı altında bir sekme olarak görmek, istediğimde ana grubun alt sekmelerini açabilmek . örneğin bir proje kapsamında bütçe ile ilgili sekmeler ve planlama ile ilgili sekmeler var. Bunları kendi ana grupları altında bütçe ve planlama olarak iki sekme haline getirmek istiyorum ana gruba tıkladığımda alt sekmelerin açılmasını istiyorum. Yardımlarınız ve geri dönüşünüz için şimdiden teşekkürler.

                                    • stop changing things!!!

                                      Why would you change the look of your icons? That formatting brush looks different now, and it's driving me nuts!! The old one was easier to spot. I'm not paying big money for you to "update" this program. I'm just paying money because that's the cost of using it. I HATE when you make chages. Is there some way to prevent it from updating until I'm ready to swallow some changes (like maybe when I get a new computer)
