  1. Remove account information in top

    Please remove account information in the top of office programs.


    1. I don't care which user is logged in.

    2. It is useless information. P

    3. People around me is not supposed to know who I am.


    4. So please hide it under "File" or whatever.


    I want however to see the file name! I have 4 excel docs open but have no clue which ones because there is no room for the document name, because of this account information in the top.

    Please remove it.

  2. To apply a function on Chart Title...

    When we visualize the data, we need the Chart Title to be dynamized. İt is impossibe to

    apply Simple Excel Functions like Textjoin, Concat, Concatenate, etc. on Chart Title Cell.

    To keep Chart Title interactive, we implement the necessary Functions combination in

    another cell and make link from Chart Title Cell to it.

    From time loss point of view, Direct implementation of Functions Combination on Chart

    Title Cell would be very practical for Excel Users and appreciated.

  5. Excel Options title bar

    Excel Options title bar doesn't match the current theme of Office as Word & Outlook.

    For example, when we enable the black mode, the title bar still white!
    Same this with PowerPoint, OneNote (win32), and Access.

    Could you make them consistent?

  7. Feature to be able to add letters and numbers instead of dots scatter plots

    The 'Marker Options" only has a limited shapes (like dots, X, + , O ..etc). It would be extremely helpful if we could add alphabets and numbers to that. Currently, we can add pictures, but adding picture of a letter isn't as clean as being able to add a letter itself.

  8. Remove fade transition effects for Remote Desktop users

    Some of the fade effects used in Excel and other Office apps have a major impact on users with a Remote Desktop connection, even when using high bandwidth connections. The fade transition effect when enabling editing of a protected document is particularly bad and can freeze an RDP connection.

  11. Excel over image

    We can insert an image and make a spreadsheet over it...but Excel won't print that image (WHY????? AARGH!) Why not allow a pdf import and a spreadsheet on top of that so we can essentially negate the need for Acrobat? With all that Excel does, it is mind boggling that we can't use it on top of an image.

  14. PLEASE figure out a way to allow Office applications to be exempt from high contrast mode

    High Contrast mode in Windows is not only beneficial for everyone's eyes, it is also necessary for some people with eye conditions to work on a computer for extended periods of time. However, as anyone who has used high contrast mode can tell you, it pretty much renders Word and Excel useless, especially the white lines over black background in Excel, with no ability to see color in Excel files.

    Can Microsoft please help us out? I'm an accountant that uses Excel all day, I love high-contrast mode but cannot use it because of how it makes Excel useless for…

  18. Same Ribbon Design as Office 365

    as an Office Insider, i would like to recommend a same ribbon graphics design (just like the white ribbon with colored title bar that corresponds to what office apps you use, found in Office 365) on MS Office 2016/2019 too. I think it would be a great idea to have unified and uniform design between Office apps :))

    wish i had the chance that this post/idea will be noticed and make some actions :))

  19. Series for Map Colours

    For the Maps (not the Bing ones), I would like to see an option of up to (say) 5 series for colours, each chosen by the user, as an alternative to the two or three colours with intermediate shades.

    Thanks
