  2. Set default to Copy - paste visible only, opt into paste hidden

    Set default to Copy - paste visible only, opt into paste hidden
    The Default setting should be able to be set for visible only with paste special being for hidden.

    Really annoying when working with filtered lists and pasting on everything hidden and not knowing / forgetting.

  6. An option to copy selected rows with header row option will be good to use.

    An option to copy selected rows with header row option will be good to use. Like in SQL Server.

  7. Allow temporarily broken formulas

    I have a long list of formulas, and want to nest every formula within another if statement. Using find and replace to replace the beginning and end of every formula (the parts that don't differ between each one), this should be very easy. However, excel won't let me change a single one because, when I try to replace the text, "the formula is missing an opening or closing parenthesis."

    I can appreciate having error checking for formulas, but there should be SOME way to either bypass this error checking or turn it off! This is frustrating me to no end.

  8. Provide a "click on button" to allow input to cells to intermittently move horizontally or vertically

    Depending on the data that I am imputing to my sheets, sometimes it is more convenient to move to the next cell down or to the side. This can now be done but requires use of the property options and applies to all sheets. A button that could override depending on usage would be of great help.

  10. implement undo/redo on a per sheet basisso thatnavigating around and making changes elsewhere will not affect undo/redo in a different sheet

    presently, an undo causes changes to sheets that may not be visible/active. unod/redo should apply only to the visible sheet, whil preserving the action stack for all sheets independently

    Keep 2 items in copy memory at the same time CTRL-C CTRL-V, 2nd option :
    Create a "quick key" to copy - paste more than one item in memory at a time. CTRL C, CTRL (new key) for saving second item in memory. CTRL V for pasting the 1st, CTRL (new key) pasting for the 2nd.

  13. validation *must* be case sensitive

    Need users to choose either "M" or "V" in a cell. No other option is allowed. The target application does not accept "v" or "m". However, Excel yields TRUE on "M"="m" instead of FALSE. How can I enforce case sensitive comparison?

    When I create content, copy the content to clipboard, then undo my content, open a new excel file or new tab and paste my content, please keep my content in the clipboard so I can paste it to the new location! During the creative process, I sometimes like to snapshot the version I got to and revert to the previous, but not loose the extra work between, and repurpose for another tab.

  15. Enlarge the font in the Find and Replace window for those that have a hard time seeing

    Enlarge the font in the Find and Replace window for those that have a hard time seeing. Similar to have you can enlarge the worksheet, it would be nice to be able to enlarge the Find What box in Find and Replace.

  16. Bring Back Track Changes

    When sharing documents, which is supposedly the beauty of 365, it almost seems ridiculous to remove the feature that makes everyone feel the safest and most collaborative.

    THE BACKGROUND CAN BE CHANGED BUT NO MODIFICATION OFR TRANSPARENCY IS NOT AVAILABLE, PLEASE ADD THE FEATURE TO MAKE THE EXCEL LOOK COOLER.

  18. All lists must have a search box. Even the context menu. The search box must be a part of the list object itself.

  20. To be able to change the strikethrough font colour (like you can with the underlining option) and have a different font colour for the text

    Could you please put in the option to change the colour of the strikethrough font to a different colour from the text, like you can with the underlining feature. For example:- black font with a red strikethrough.
