  3. Setting Autofill Default

    Click and drag a cell defaults to step (1,2,3). The default should be user selectible. For example, default to "copy" so you get 1, 1, 1.

    This was suggested back in 2018, got 110 votes, then was closed by an admin which prevented further votes. I guess MS doesn't want to work on what customers want, just shut them down and do whatever else they are doing instead?

  5. Why does it take so long to insert a line at the top of my file?

    I wanted to rename the file but could not. So I thought to insert a line at the top to explain what the sheet is about. I said "insert row" and it went "working on it" for MINUTES -- still "working on it" after 10 minutes! What is going on?

  6. Insertion of rows & columns at specified intervals

    Insertion of specified rows & columns at specified intervals same as an office extender "Kutools" does.

  7. Change location of EDIT MESSAGE command

    On the HOME ribbon, the EDIT MESSAGE command is under ACTIONS in the MOVE group. I believe a better home for it would be in the EDIT group as it has nothing to do with "moving" the message.

  9. training autocorrect

    Ordinarily having autocorrect is a nice feature. But we need a way to train it without it being all or nothing. Putting in the (c) as the copywright symbol is great when doing corporate documents, but when citing statutes that note 99 C.F.R. § 123.456(c) it's a royal pain. to run through and take them all out. You can delete that function, but it's a nightmare to turn it back on when going back to the docs that would benefit from the (c) autocorrecting.

  12. Find and replace special characters

    I have always wished that the Excel Find/Replace dialog allowed for additional options for special characters as the one does in Word. It would be a nice add.

  14. Make pasted hyperlinks to valid URL address clickable by default

    Hi,
    As of now when you paste valid URL into a cell it will be not recognized automatically as hyperlink which you click on.

    Step to reproduce:
    1. Paste valid URL in default cell in non-edit mode (edit mode is double click or F2). Let it be https://google.com
    2. This URL is not recognized as clickable but simply text.
    3. Press F2.
    4. Press ENTER.
    5. Now URL is perfectly clickable.

    Main issue is that you can't turn all of those pasted URLs into valid ones without help of VBA.

    You can also make URL clickable by using HYPERLINK() function…

  16. Add a "Move Special"

    Excel seriously needs a "Move Special" command.

    Most of the time, when I move a formula, I neither want to move cell borders from the starting location, nor over-write the borders at the destination location.

    Then I have to repair borders at both locations.

    Moving solely a formula should not be a multiple step process.

  17. Highlight Row Lines of Selection When Draging Cell Contents to New Location

    When a stack of cells within a single column is selected, the top and bottom row lines of the selection should highlight in an alternate color when dragging laterally to a new location to ensure the final destination is directly left or right from the original location. This should prevent accidentally dragging the selection up or down from the intended location. (i.e. dragging a group of five cells, ten columns directly to the right)

  19. Select visible cells by default

    Give the ability to the user to select only visible cells by default. Having to select the range, click on Go to Special and selecting Visible Cells only adds unecessary extra steps in certain types of work.

  20. Bring back Keep the Copy

    Please bring back Keep the Copy. It was so short-lived, but a truly wonderful idea. I feel lost without it and have often wondered what happened to it. It's so useful and hitting Esc is so second-nature. At least let it be user specific.
