  1. Don't reset view to first column when clearing filters

    Hi All,

    When one clears filters (ctrl+shift+L) in Excel, then this also resets your view back to the start of the file (i.e., the first column and first row, A1).

    Is it possible to disable this behaviour?

    It is rather annoying to work on an Excel file with a lot of columns and have your view reset to the first column every time you clear filters. If you are busy working, lets say at row Z or further, this causes you to have to scroll forward from A to Z every time you clear the filters.

    I am not sure…

  3. Undo Stack Integration with VBA

    Is now February 2019 - Any chance that VBA Integration with the Undo Stack is on the roadmap or in Development? Workarounds are extremely lengthy (codewise) and complicated.

  4. Update data automatically in connected workbook when synced to OneDrive

    Recently, I've been having trouble with Excel. Data from one workbook is not automatically shown on the connected workbook. I have to close and open the workbook again for changes to appear. This has been happening to the workbooks only if they're synced to OneDrive.

  7. Darken & Enlarge the font in Excel

    The font is light gray in color, and is difficult to read on a white background. The Help section is difficult to read. Darken and enlarge the font in Excel. It would be much easier to read, and a boon especially for visually impaired people. Thank you.

  10. drag to copy checkboxes

    When using drag to fill on cells with linked checkboxes, and the Cell link in the checkbox options is not absolute, the checkboxes should follow normal drag to fill rules, rather than just copying. The cell links should be counting up from $A2 to $A3, $A4, etc. Instead they're just ALL linking to the original cell.

  11. comment stay near the cell

    when you open a comment with many lines (high form) it is moved: it does not stay next to the cell.
    Unable to return to the cell leaving the comment.
    You must press ESC ESC Arrow LEFT ARROW Right

    Why comment shape move and not stay near the cell ?

    Thanks

  12. Excel for Ubuntu / CentOS

    I'am Japanese.
    I used Google Translate.

    I want a Linux version of Excel.
    With Ubuntu version and CentOS version you can cover most Linux.
    Linux users are potential customers.
    There are too many restrictions in the online version.
    Thank you.

  17. Option to paste text only - 'Paste Special Text'/'Paste Special Values" - 3 options.

    Option to be set by the workbook developer so that users don't corrupt complicated spreadsheets by pasting in info from outside sources. I even have users changing the cell's protection from unlocked to locked by pasting in values from an email which means that cell can no longer be selected (due to protection options). This a major headache for constantly fixing paste induced auto-formatting errors and trying to get the users to remember to always 'Paste as text/values' as the default behaviour in any spreadsheet.

    Option 1) A feature in the Options>Advanced section (e.g., 'Paste options for this workbook'). An…

  18. Microsoft forums trucating formulas

    Couldn't find an area relevant to the answers.microsoft forums so I will try here.

    If you paste a long Excel formula into the forums it truncates to
    e.g =IF(OR(AY$2={"awt"
    N3)))

    A lot of the users are having to post images of the formula to combat this, and most experts know this is a problem, but for new users this may be difficult.
