How can we improve Excel for Windows (Desktop Application)?

Ticket #12395436 - Excel arabic

Hi, we experience an issue with MS Excel and the arabic language pack: User does right click on desktop and selects new Excel Workbook. New Workbook opens and first column A is on the right of the sheet and title of the sheet is arabic. If user just starts excel and creates a new workbook within excel all is working as expected, only if user selects new workbook from right click to desktop this happens. We installed the arabic language pack and this seems to affect the default template of excel.

The same issue is already reported for Office2007 and 2010: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_excel-mso_other-mso_2010/excel-sheets-display-in-arabic-side/26dafbd8-b4ed-4c67-b6e6-4b78a278c78f?messageId=206c87da-acc3-4122-8d17-f4a4e84cabcd&page=2

We opened ticket #12395436 at MS support and they agreed, this is by design but can be changed if this idea gets enough votes...
(Whyever they do not just work their tickets???)

However please vote to get this annoying stuff fixed finally.

Thx
