  2. Paste Special External Values

    Allow to paste all formulas linked to external workbooks as values. But not affect the local formulas. Essentially to archive and not worry about external linked data.

  3. Highlight the left row numbers \ top column letters when dragging a populated cell using the "plus" function

    If you just click an empty cell and drag it down it highlights the row numbers to the left so you can see what rows you are highlighting.

    This does not happen when you select a cell and use the little black "plus" to drag a cell that is populated.

    This would really help when you are dragging down / over a large amount of cells so you know where to stop as intended.

    Thank you

  5. Default Note Size and Shortcut Keys for Resizing Note and Note Panel

    The note shows up too small. I would like a much larger default note size. I see no way to set a default size.

    Along the same lines, I would like to be able to resize the note with the keyboard. Resizing with the mouse is tricky and time consuming.

    Somewhat related, I would like the option of not having the user's name at the start of the note. I do no share the workbook and putting my name at the start of each note takes up space or requires delection.

  8. Row light up

    When we are entering maybe 50 independent marks of a student in a row, could we have that row light up while we are working on it..so that we do not accidently stray away from that row?

  9. When copying and pasting a region, the "keep column widths" option does not paste the data if rows are filtered out.

    When copying and pasting a region, the "keep column widths" option does not paste the data if rows are filtered out. To recreate this, add data to a region and adjust the column widths. Copy/paste this region "as is" elsewhere and keep column widths. Everything works. Apply a filter. Select any block of data that does not include a hidden row.

The column widths are applied, but the data is not.…

  12. Autofill + fill colour

    When excel suggests an autofill, it could also apply fill colour from previous cells. For example i constantly write in cell "Good client" and us fill colour option for green color. Next time i start to write, excel already suggests "Good client", but it also could offer "Good client" with green fill.

  14. Automatic Saving Excel Sheet Data

    Instead of One Minute auto save timer to save data automatically, can we have an feature like an instant saving just like Google Sheet Online. Whatever we do any changes it saves instantly so even if the Excel gets crashed we wont be losing any data.

  15. Provide a way to color the cursor/ cursor box

    Provide a way to color the cursor/ cursor box - so that when editing a row (or even the column) .... could be clearly identified.

    MS customers have been asking this for years ... why this was not considered? It appears to be a simple option to offered to customers ... it helps with Excel use !!!!!!!

  17. Leave the f'ing leading zeros!!

    If my data has leading zeros, then I want leading zeros!.... How is that so hard to understand!?!... Make truncating leading zeros an optional setting, not the default.

  18. Editing directly in cells should not hide cells to the left of the cell I am working on.

    Excel had this right for three decades, but the recent Excel 365 upgrade (version 1902) broke it. Most people develop spreadsheets working top to bottom and left to right. This means that when we write a new formula, we usually want to reference cells to the left of the cell we are working on. Since the 8/2019 patch, the edit-directly-in-cell box is left aligned or right aligned depending on the format of the cell. So the edit mode box often hides the cells I am trying to reference when those cells are to the left. This means that I cannot…

  19. Is there any shortcut key to copy & paste a row & column one line item above the previous line item?

    Is there any short cut key to copy & Paste the data from one line above / previous to current row and also to column?

    Ex: I am creating an excel file, where I need the data available in row no:4, in the row no:6.

    To copy in to row no:5, I can use 'Ctrl+D', if it is column I can use 'Ctrl+R'. However, to copy to row no:6, do we have any short cut keys defined? if not, can that be possible to do?

  20. Increase Decimal auto fill formatting issues?

    Excel's increase decimal button tends to outsmart itself. If I have a column of numbers:
    17.9
    18.9
    14.1
    x

    For x, if I want to type 100.0, I type "100" and then hit enter. Excel then inputs the integer "100" with no decimal. Then I hit the increase decimal button but instead of 100.0 it writes 100.00. Why doesn't Excel just increase the decimal by 1 instead of 2. I then have to hit decrease decimal after this to get it to go back down to 100.0. I would think Excel's autofill feature would follow the pattern of one decimal…
