  2. Update Visual Basic for Applications

    Visual Basic for Applications is still version 7.1 from 2012. It's high time that power user portion of the application received updates to the interface, IntelliSense, and features. That portion of the program needs to be aligned with the current features now available within the Microsoft Suite. It also needs a facelift to the Userforms palette. I suggest starting with Excel, where VBA is most widely used, then PowerPoint, Word, Outlook.

    Don't go destroying developer's programs, just add interoperability, functions, and facelift.

  3. Create a command line tool for signing Office files with a digital certificate

    Besides Office, Excel files can be created using numerous software tools. More often than not, batches of macro-enabled Excel files are processed with scripts for productivity purposes. However, VBA code signing cannot be part of an automated process, as it is a manual task that requires opening & saving the file in Excel.

    This request is about creating a command line tool for signing Office files with a digital certificate, similar to MS SignTool.

    In addition, the existing macro signing process in Office is not 100% compatible with Open XML specifications. I can clarify this statement in a private discussion…

  9. Enable Macabacus Productivity Add-in Compatibility - Home & Office 2019

    Macabacus is a productivity suite that really cuts down on my work time because they allow you to cycle through precedents within a formula (by using arrow keys) so that whenever you click on a precedent cell within the formula, you can choose to be taken to that reference cell automatically (any tab throughout the workbook) and continue auditing the formulas in the precedent cells.

    However, I've spent hours trying to incorporate this Add-in into Excel, but I think there may be some sort of issue with the 2019 Excel Release. I'm an advanced user and just purchased Excel 2019…

  11. Support Office themes in VBA editor

    Also, add an option to make the theme match the current theme of the Office so that if we change the Office theme to Black the VBA theme will change automatically to match this theme.

  12. More vba events

    VBA events are extremely powerful but currently they are seriously lacking! If the Excel team went through and exposed more events VBA would a lot easier to manage for complex applications.

    Events to expose:
    * Row and column insertion
    * Table specific events:
    ** Table - Insert_Row
    ** Table - Insert_Column
    ** Table - Cell_Change
    ** Table - On Filter
    ** Table - On Filter button click
    * Chart events!
    ** Chart - On Mouse Down
    ** Chart - On chart object select
    ** Chart - On chart resize
    * Shape events
    ** On shape resize
    ** On shape click …

  15. Content Pane Remove Size Limit, Add Positioning, Resizing

    There is a limitation to the width and height of a Content Pane at 1000 x 1000px. This limit is imposed when resizing via mouse in Excel Desktop and the JavaScript API. This (via mouse) is not true in Excel Online (or in PowerPoint) where the size can be set and saved to any size via mouse.

    It would make the Content Pane consistent and open up a huge number of innovation opportunities to remove the current 1000 x 1000px limitation in the JavaScript API and Desktop Content Panes in Excel.

    The ability to position and resize the Content Pane…

  16. How to disable interaction between Excel instances? VBA runs slower as instances increase. Not like that two days ago. what updated?

    Like to see an option to completely isolate each Excel instances for speed, so my 8-core computer can use all the cores. Now 8 instances only run 30% (3.9% /instance). Shame.

  17. Modernise VBA Class Syntax

    Writing Classes in VBA makes me ….. nervous. Any improvement would please me already ;-(

    Why is VBA developing so viscously? Millions of VBA programmers but no further development of the language, is somehow strange I would say.

  18. Correct illogical limit of 255 characters for entering Matrix formulas using VBA

    When you use Excel, you have a limit of 8192 for the lenght of a formula.

    When you assign a matrix formula using VBA, it is restricted to 255.
    Even using macro recorder, it'll save the correct instruction, but then it'll be useless as VBA won't execute that instruction.
