  2. Ribbon fonts

    A suggestion from a senior citizen would it be possible to have a ribbon whereby the fonts and characters can be adjusted darker so that they are much easier to see?
    As one gets older the eyes start to fail but the love for Excel does not fade! I find it an incredible way to keep ones brain active and alive.
    My very Best Regards to the team.

  4. Put the workshees at the top

    Selecting tabs along the top of the program is now standard UI design. Excel presents "tabs"(worksheets) by putting them along the bottom. This causes confusion and many people don't even realized that it is possible to have multiple sheets on one file. Moving the tabs to the top would standardize the interface and exposed the feature to average users. It would also remove the need to "train" people on how to use the feature, as their experience with every other piece of common software would let them know how to use it already. At least providing the option would go…

  5. More dynamic hotkey for color formatting.

    Hot Key for coloring text, cells.
    Alt + fc currently brings up the box of colors from which to choose. Instead, it would be great to hit alt + fc + blue. There could even be a place to choose what shade of blue you mean when you type blue.

  7. Custom Cell Format Referencing Another Cell For Threshold

    Rather than manually adding a threshold value to a cell in custom cell format it would be useful to be able to reference another cell containing the value you wish to use.

  9. Add more options for custom number formatting for chart axis or allow for conditional formatting there

    This issue I have is that I have numbers ranging from -20 million to 20 million displayed on a chart. I am using custom number formatting for the chart Y axis to display thousands with "K" and millions with "M". This can only be done to apply to the positive numbers. I've tried to format my chart data with conditional formatting to the required format and then select "linked to source" in the number formatting selection under format axis, but it doesn't seem to work. The research I've done only has lead to many sources saying what I need cannot…

  10. ALlow for the "Change Case" feature in Publisher to also be available in Excel instead of having the "PROPER" formula.

    It is really time consuming to have to use the PROPER function when the Case Change function is available in other MS applications.

    Be able to double click on an individual cell width to get the best fit for that cell. Realize it will change width of entire column, but that is OK

    Similar to double clicking on the column heading. But that provides the best fit for the widest cell in the column. Want to get best fit for individual cell.

  15. Please correct the error in the accounting format


    • Open a new Excel worksheet


    • Format the entire worksheet with Accounting Format, 0 Decimal places, Symbol: None


    • Enter 100 into cell A1


    • In cell A2 enter the formula =A1*5/12


    • Note that the format has now changed to show 2 decimal places


    This only seems to occur with the Accounting Format. Using the Number Format this change won't occur. However the Accounting Format is a convenient format for someone like me in the financial professional that likes their worksheets to show "-" instead of "0"

  19. Formulas to prep CF material for the CF'ing

    Often one cannot use Conditional Formatting (CF) without compromising the underlying data/worksheet.

    For example, one might have dates that need formatted some special way (an example on a tip site recently, someone wanted "SU 10/20") that cannot be done without the changing of the underlying numerical material to text requiring its changing back before other use of it. Additionally, if it is already in use by other parts of that, or another, spreadsheet, it would be a nightmare to change. You'd need an "offshoot" mirror of things that had the changes, however well, or badly, that might fit into things.

  20. Fill Color

    Sometimes when reconciling spreadsheets i use multiple colors to keep changes, numbers, edits, separated. Every time i need to change the color of my "fill color" it is really frustrating to go to the fill icon, chose the drop down menu, find the exact color i was using just to have to do it all over again the next time i need the "other" color. It would be nice to be able to add multiple "fill color" icons to my tool ribbon that way i can just click the color i need quickly and go back and forth between colors…
