  1. Make the Default Alignment of Shapes Middle-Center

    When a shape is drawn in other Office apps, the text is centered both horizontally and vertically. But in Excel it's aligned to the Top-Left. Please make it Middle-Center instead.

  2. Anti-aliasing on diagonal borders

    Diagonal borders are common to X out a cell. The problem is that you can see the jaggedness as the borders' edges step through each row and column of pixels. Most other visuals in Excel are smoothed out.

  5. Revise the Grand Totals icons

    When you have a PivotTable cell selected, go to the Design tab and then Grand Totals. At first, the icons all look the same, but actually, the data is coloured in blue to indicate where the grand total will be placed, and the remaining data remains grey. The blue and the grey are too similar to each other to be able to easily tell them apart when the data is only 1 pixel thick. This issue only gets worse over time as monitors gain more resolution but remain the same size (i.e. pixels get smaller and their colour becomes even…

  6. It would be great if I could add or link a photo to each data row.

    What I would like to be able to do is add or link a photo to a (each) data row. For example, suppose I have a spread sheet of all my valuables. Each row dedicated to a particular item with the columns containing attributes such as name of the item, value, purchase date, etc. I would like to include an attribute column titled “photo” to document an image of the item. Since any discernable photo will be much too large to fit into the likely size of the cell, when selected, the cell must access (wherever stored) the appropriate image…

  7. Theme availability

    I would like to request to kindly provide dark theme that will be applied to whole worksheet not only on ribbon. it is most preferable if Dark Gray or some other effective color along with black theme is provided for working night to reduce eye strain.
    it would also request to kindly give option to change outlook body color (Switch background) like available in black theme i.e. not available in Dark Gray.

  9. Graphics formatting with the Cell

    Wenn man eine Grafik einfügt, sollte es eine Funktion geben, dass sich diese mit der Zellgröße automatisch formatiert.

    Ich möchte eine Zelle Erstellen 1cm x 1cm und dort eine Grafik / Piktogramm einfügen 0,90 cm 0,90 cm. Dieses soll einmal Mittig sowohl in Höhe als auch in Breite in der Zelle zentriert werden können, ohne dass man manuell mit der Maus die Formatierung machen muss und sich auch mit der Zellgröße vergrößern oder verkleinern können.

    Wenn ich also die Zelle auf 2x2cm erweitere, sollte die Grafik entsprechend größer / kleiner werden können.

    Auch sollte sich eine Grafik am Text orientieren…

  10. Add Pin Shapes to Screen to the Shapes properties

    Add a new property to shapes that pins the shape in position relative to the screen and not the sheet, that way it wont be affected by scrolling and can remain visible at all times as the user scrolls around the sheet.

  13. trendline

    Add an option to create your own global form for a trendline. An option that you can create a formula and the data will get fitted to that line. For example, you can say: y= a/SQRT(x) or y=a/x or something else and Excel will try and fit the line to that formula.

  14. Replace the Excel 2016 icon for the "Switch To Workbook" button in Power Pivot

    Currently, the "Switch To Workbook" button in Power Pivot uses the Excel 2016 logo as its icon. Please change this to either the Excel 2019 logo.

  15. Histograma

    Utilização de diversas linhas e colunas para a criação do histograma, ao invés de apenas uma linha ou uma coluna.
    Isso iria facilitar muito a vida de diversas pessoas.

    Use of several rows and columns to create the histogram, instead of just a row or column.

  16. Logarithmic scales should not be restricted to 10x

    The units in logarithmic scales should be more flexible : main unit should be the basis of the exponential, the secondary unit should be the number of linear units per exponential unit (the one that shows with decreasing spacing)
    e.g. in a logarithmic graph with main unit 2 and secondary unit 6 and minimum of 3 should show evenly spaced main scale : 3, 6, 12, 24, etc.. the scale between 3 and 6 would be divided by increments of .5, the one between 6 and 12 by increments of 1, etc...

  17. Which option is the best- hiring a Freelancer or an illustration service?

    I was someone who originally followed my profession in the world of chemical engineering. But it wasn't a lot of fun for me. Crunching information all day long may be something that some people enjoy, but I just couldn't get myself to enjoy it. Then, I started working on something that I've been planning to do for a long time. I found my interest in illustration. It wasn't easy for a couple of years but then gradually I started offering the best children's book illustration services. Soon, I began to work with a firm too. And from my experiences I…

  18. XY-graphics export as vector graphics

    Since Office 2003, the lines in Excel diagrams are exportet as surfaces. For graphical editing of the diagram, e.g. giving other line styles which are not available in Excel, this is catastrophic. Please include the option to export or copy or paste a simplified vector graphic where lines and curves are exported as lines and curves.

  19. Create Borders from the inner side of the border of a cell

    Often we want to highlight a set of columns with different border colors and thicknesses and when coloring adjacent columns, the last formatting is set.
    To overcome this we usually insert an empty column and have the borders separated.

    Can it be that the border property of a cell draw the line thickness from inside until the outer limit of the cell instead from the center of the border??? And to cover the cell interior property, the border can just override the interior color of the cell, in this way, adjacent cells can have distinct colors of borders in such…
