  3. Embed Snippet into the 'Insert' tab.

    I love your snipping tool! However, it is far too cumbersome within the Office environment. Why not just embed it into the 'Insert" tab?

    Currently, users have the additional unnesseccary steps:

    -Step outside of the Office environment

    -Save the Snippet to a file or desktop

    -Return to the Office environment

    -Click on the "Insert" tab

    -Select "Pictures"

    -Find the folder location of the Snippet

    -Optional, but likely: I find that most users don't keep their snippets beyond just sharing for some temporary purpose (paste it in a document, email, etc.). In these cases they'd either have to return to the…

  6. Please make ";" an optional command in the Quick Access Toolbar

    In some countries Excel uses ";" instead of "," in formula arguments. A lot of people like to use their mouse creating formulas. This is easy to implement og will make workflow a lot easier for a number of people outside of US.

  9. Lock certain columns

    There should be a way to lock certain columns, similarly to clicking the "Don't move or size with cells" option for shape formatting, so that if I want to add a row to, say, columns A:G but not H:K, I can do that.

    I want to be able to put data into a row of a vendor name date and amount that was paid, then at the end I want to be able to put in the final cell a picture of the invoice that expands when I press the cell and collapses when I press it again, or even on mouse over, this way i can catalogue the actual invoice along with the data that has been entered so a visualization allows the person looking at the document to verify the data has been entered correctly and it also just allows the…

  15. Would it be possible to resize the icons on the ribbon?

    The ribbon is a good idea, however the icons are way too large when I use Excel on the laptop. Would it be possible to have a Small / Medium / Large / X Large option, a bit like when viewing files in Windows Explorer?

  18. Fix Excel so XNumbers works

    XNumbers (v6) was a marvelous advanced mathematics add-in for earlier versions of Excel (before 2013). In Excel 2013, it caused Excel to open up empty worksheets, until an update fixed the problem. In Excel 2016, the empty worksheet symptom reappeared, until some further update "fixed" it so it no longer works at all! Why? The error message is unintelligible!
