    Personally, I think ALL popup windows should be resizable. There is no reason anymore that, other than laziness, that MS should have any fixed size pop-up windows. I'd be happy even if it didn't remember the last size the window was. But for the love of Pete, make the windows resizable, especially if they contain formula text boxes. This should be an easy one to fix.

    Considering almost if now all of us use widescreen monitors and many more nowadays switching to ultra-wides, we could allow the option to have it in the sidebar. Combine that with an option for a live preview, we could have a solution that doesn't interrupt our workflow.

    I use Conditional Formatting quite a bit. I would like to see the window sizable to see my formulas and be able to copy them easier. Actually all menus should be able to be resizeable.

    I also would like to see some sort of default on the original formatting I did to a sheet and be able to quickly delete all the cut and pastes people do. I may start with 8 and end up with 50 because people don't know to past just text and not paste all formatting.
