  1. Dragging bottom row of multiple tables side-by-side should extend the tables not just the values in rows

    If you have multiple tables in a sheet that are side-by-side and have blank columns between them and select the last row of all the tables to extend them, each of the tables should extend with it, not just the values. The values do extend but then you need to manually extend the tables to include the new values.

  3. Insert Picture / Share Option not easily visible

    I consider myself Advance User of Excel, but suddenly I find difficult to Insert Picture which was so straight forward earlier. I took atleast a minute to figure out that Insert Picture, Shapes are not grouped under Illustrations.

    My suggestion is to put Insert Picture, Shapes directly on the Ribbon instead of Illustrations.

  4. Allow cells to be dragged and dropped by mouse without getting and error EVERY TIME.

    I was advised that we are no longer able to highlight and drag a cell using the mouse to another cell and get an error 'by design'.

    I suggest one of two solutions:
    1) Change the design so we can move cells by mouse without getting an error.
    2) Allow us to disable clipboard comparison in Excel so that if we don't want that error, we don't get it.

  6. Handwriting capability

    Add the ability to handwrite on Excel for making notes rather than just using text or, in the case of a voucher or similar form, to be able to sign the document.

  7. Shift + Space while typing

    There is the function that Shift + Space marks the whole line. In Excel offline, this function only works while nothing is entered into a cell. In Excel online, since the last update was done about two weeks ago, the funciton also works while a cell is edited. This is quite annoying as everything that has been typed before is deleted.
    If I type e.g. "DA PL" and I don't release the Shift key while entering the space, the line is marked and "DA" is deleted. This is only in Excel online and only since the last update was done.

  12. Do not autofill entire row/column when "insert copied cells"

    If I copy a single cell, when using "insert copied cells", it will insert a new row/column filled with the copied content in EVERY CELLS in the inserted row/column. I don't know about other people, but this is rarely what I want to do, what is the problem with just insert a new row/column and paste just ONE CELL? If I want autofill, I can do it myself by double clicking the bottom-right corner.

    Not to mention that this behavior is extremely slow, if the copied cell contains formatting. It takes forever to complete. And it's wasting time on something…

  13. operación de sustracción mala

    al momento de llevar a cabo la sustracción entre dos celdas. ejemplo

    a1=34.876
    b1=34.800

    a1 - b1 = 0.076000000000000005000000

  16. Better Date Recogntion

    For being such a powerful tool, Excel is remarkably rigid in terms of its ability to recognize dates. The software is unable to recognize common date arrangements (ex: "01/01/2020") as anything other than text. Users are instead expected to utilize less intuitively obvious formats (ex: "2020-01-01"). This needlessly adds to the Excel learning curve for new users (who likely aren't aware of this limitation) and can create additional work when dealing with large datasets (ex: having to use "Text to Columns" functions to convert to date every time that a particular dataset is downloaded). This limitation extends to Power Query,…

  19. Track

    Track changes without sharing a workbook.
    Track changes that show the original value and the new value separately on another sheet or separate linked workbook. Allow setting of a time frame for the tracking and ability to save or archive separately the changes. Note the specific area changed, date/time stamp and user.

  20. Прогрессия: 1) Сделать по УМОЛЧАНИЮ кнопку "по СТОЛБЦАМ", а не "по строкам" 2) дать поле "Начальное значение"

    1) нумерация строк требуется гораздо чаще, чем нумерация столбцов
    2) очень часто пользователь забывает ввести начальное значение и приходится вызывать окно СНОВА
