  1. Give users the ability to put the color back in all the Toolbar icons. The October 2018 white/blue icons are impossible to decipher.

    Give users the ability to put the color back in all the Toolbar icons. The October 2018 white/blue icons are impossible to decipher. Huge step backwards.

  2. A dark theme that includes the page.

    I love the dark them, for the outer edges of Excel, however, I want the excel page to also invert. So the cells go black, the lettering goes white.

  3. Histogram with fitted probability density function

    In our data analysis, we frequently draw the histogram and overlay the fitted prob density function (PDF). We use Matlab to create this kind of graphic (to check a Gaussian distribution, for example)
    In Excel, it is impossible to combine a histogram with anything else. A histogram (or even a clustered column series) is not compatible with a scattered XY series.

  4. Multiple y axes on xy charts

    Right now, xy charts only supports a primary and a secondary Y axis. It would be great if we would be able to draw multiple lines with different scales, each one with its own Y axis. And when I say multiple, I mean more than just 2, as it is supported right now.

    Attached an example with 4 Y axis.

  7. Enable the creation of a gradient header/footer/background that can print all the way to the edges of the paper.

    Enable the creation of a gradient header/footer/background that can print all the way to the edges of the paper. Or just let Word and Excel play together and share a file format.

  8. COLOR Coding and Selecting the SHOW activities on a spread sheet (Calendar Also)

    Have Always: Needed to be able to color categorize a spread sheet and to select a different spread sheet by color, or combine colors on a spread sheet. Is most useful when doing TO DO Lists or a PROJECT LIST to be able to print just the items needed.

    I NOT necessarily a Big Business need, can be just an individual or small business need.

    на мой взгляд, в библиотеке шаблонов диаграмм не хватает объемных моделей и возможности их модификации.

  10. Graph axis labels should support subtext and supertext

    In the picture, the graph axis titles come from O15:17

    The cells have supertext in them, but this does not transfer to the axis labels

  11. bar graph overlaping

    It is a nightmare when you try to plot a bar graph with secondary axis... everything overlaps and you need to insert invisible data to avoid the overlap... is really complicated and time consuming, please remove that automatic overlapping when you have primary and secondary axis in a bar graph!!!! a simple graph like the attached one took me hours... and is not even perfect... the size of the bars is not exactly the same, etc etc

  13. Create the ability to change colors of folders and file names.

    Create the ability to change colors of folders and file names.Even if the number of colors was limited this would greatly help in organizing information.

  17. Excel 2016 not displaying a large images clearly.

    A very large Image importing into Excel 2016 is blurry and not usable. The image has multiple small graphs imported from an application called FlowJo. The image is a jpg file type and should work. This works fine in Excel 2013. I also tried pasting it into Word and PowerPoint 2016 and had the same problem.
    What is weird, if I RDP into the computer it is clear as a could be. it doesn't seem to be a windows or hardware issue as I have tried it on other computers and a Mac. Consistant failure point is Office 2016.
    I…

  18. ternäres Diagramm

    Hallo,

    ich bin Student im Fach der Materialwissenschaft und es ist in unserem Fachgebiet üblich ternäre Diagramme (auch Dreicksdiagramme genannt) für die Beurteilung von Problemen zu nutzen. Leider gibt von Excel keine Möglichkeit ein solches Diagramm zu erstellen.
    Ich würde mich freuen wenn in der nächsten Excelversion eine solche Möglichkeit von Microsoft geliefert wird.

  19. Please add dark theme to Microsoft VBA

    I think it's a great feature if you could let the user to choose between light theme and dark theme on the vba editor, I've been doing programming for years and white theme editors just hurt and tire my eyes, so it'd be great if we as users can have a dark theme option as well, thank you

  20. Text Wrapping around Pictures

    It would be great if the ability to arrange text around pictures which is available in Word was also available in Excel.
    Given you're working with a Spreadsheet, it obviously limits what you'd be able to do, but even the capability to move pictures (and graphs, etc) behind the content of the actual spreadsheet would be helpful.
