  2. Make the clipboard not suck

    Can't copy from a document, and paste after it's closed. Seriously?
    Also, multiple instances of excel will include ALL instances in the undo/redo stack of events. Double seriously?

  3. Show line numbers while auto-fill

    It would be cool to see current line number while we use auto-fill.
    So instead of content of filling it is better to see line number. For instance, while we auto fill and going down through line, it is necessary to see which line I am currently at, not to paste wrong data on other line.

  6. Excel on LIne

    Make easily possible to put online any Excel worksheet.
    1) On the web, users can change cells contents (aka data enter or qwery) and the worksheet gives the answer as it has designed to do it.
    2) Users doesn't need to have Excel on their PC
    3) It's completely anonymous for user and the owner of the worksheet
    4) the server ishould be OneDrive but of course without any possiblity to know the name of the owner and acces to his files.

    СУММЕСЛИМН функциясида "диапазон_условия" аргументида "ИЛИ" ва "И" мантиқий функцияларини ишлатиш имкониятини яратинг.
    Шунда битта жадвалда "олма" ва "банан" меваларининг қийматларини битта функцияда аниқлаш мумкин бўлади.

  13. The "Format Cells" window that the user could assign there own default setting.

    I'd like to in Excel when you click on "Format Cells" that the user could define where the default "Format Cells" could always start at where they would like to start, or at least the last used setting. I always have to click 3 or 4 times to get back to my most used format, "currency with no decimal points".Also in the menu "Clear Contents", "Insert Comment", and Format Cells could all be at the top or one at the top and the other two at the very bottom. As many times as I use these three, I seem to…

    Create a designated and insertable column for attachments and comments that can be associated to that row. See Smartsheet functionality for examples. once attached, a paperclip or comment icon appears and a window opens displaying the attachment or comments.

  17. New note

    I would like to see the default function for new notes, for the text font size and bond and delete my name at start. Then I would no long need to enlarge the font, bond it and remove my name every time when I add a new note to the cells. Thank you!

  19. Additional function for formatting cells.

    Additional function for formatting cells.
    Adjust cell size to font.
    At the moment there is in the menu of cell format, alignment, among other things the possibility to adjust the font size on the cell. In addition to this function, it would be very helpful if there was a box to click on where the cell would be adapted to the font size.

    Best regards,

  20. Please get the Excel VBA cpontext sensitive help back to work!!

    I don't really care, if it's offline or online help as long as it's fast and reliable, but currently pressing F1 in VBA shows only the MS documents content list (https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/).
    For 20 years the context help with F1 was really fast, informative and helpful. Now its just scrap. BTW: Germany is an online underdeveloped country!! Remember: we Germans need OFFLINE HELP. (I still have a 1 Mbit connection!)
