Optimize visual space for the Formula Bar
If the Formula Bar is expanded to >1 line, then the "✗ ✓ fx" box should be moved below the Name Box. This gives more horizontal space for the Formula Bar.
We should also have an option to remove these 2 boxes. Their functionality can be gotten from the Formulas tab. For me, sacrificing this rarely-needed accessibility to these features is worth it to get a bigger Formula Bar.

While we are on the subject, in Excel 2016, if you move the slider between the Name Box and the "✗ ✓ fx" box, you'll see white strips on either side of the Formula Bar. Unfortunately, these white strips just look sloppy rather than brighten your smile.
