  2. bring back the bar on the right and bottom of spreadsheet to move thru out.

    I use all ways to move thru my spreadsheets, but for accuracy I like the bar and using my curser up and down to the cell I need.

  4. Enable Full Customization File->New Screen: Select Templates to Display w/Thumbnails

    When creating a new excel worksheet (File-> New) aside from my pinned templates, excel choses what templates are displayed. Even if I pin 10 templates, there are still useless templates at the end of th page. I don't want all that clutter. Furthermore, it would be great if the thumbnail for the custom template I created look like the template. This part is available in Word, but Word still has all the useless templates cluttering the File->New screen. I have attached a screen capture of the excel screen w/X's on the templates that I DON'T want. The WORD screen capture…

  6. Add My Supported Feedback to Uservoice

    Thank you for including a "My Feedback" link on the User Voice home page. However, My feedback is too broad because it shows both ideas I SHARED and ideas I SUPPORTED.
    Separate this into 2 links would help users find an review SHARED ideas, without also having to scroll thru SUPPORTED ideas.

  7. Copy multiple selections into Clipboard

    I've always wanted the option to copy multiple selections to the clipboard. When you paste, you'd be presented with the option of everything on your clipboard, to be able to pick which selection(s) you want to paste.

  8. After a recent update, the "Insert Comment" option is no longer available from the right-click menu.

    The "Insert Comment" option is no longer available from the right-click menu. It is still visible under the "Insert" tab, but the button is gray and I can't click on it. I can use shift + F2 or I have to add a custom group to the ribbon in order to get it to work. Why has it been removed from the right-click menu and why has it been disabled?

  11. Add a voice speaking feature to read what is in the cell - and the option to repeat it.

    Audio voice - this would allow for the user to choose the cell they want to "hear" and command excel to "speak" the contents of the cell. Also, to repeat the contents.

  12. Excel Find feature for next consecutive number

    I would like the ability for the Find/Replace box to include something like "a next integer" find. For example I search for 55235 and then click either a left arrow to search for 55234 or right arrow and it will search for 55236. Basically the function is read what is in the search box and either subtract 1 or add 1 to that value to locate the next number in a spreadsheet. Seems simple enough to do this without re-sorting an entire spreadsheet. This would still not effect the basic function of the Find Next used for finding the same…

  13. Personalized ribbon

    Windows Start-menu has "recently used"-section. What if Excel (and other Office apps) would have "personalized" ribbon as default view, showing most often used buttons. You could manually edit it and office would suggest adding/removing something based on how often it's used.

  14. Change how comment box opens. I hover over comment it opens on RH side, make option to open on LH side.

    Be able to change the format of which side of the data box a comment opens on. Right now it opens on RH side of data box and if freeze panes is used the data box is no completely viewable. You have to move or edit the comment in order to read it.
    If it option to open up on LH side of data box comment would be viewable.

  15. Display the creation date for new posts in User Voice Forum

    When viewing Excel Voice forum posts, it would be helpful to include the Created: mm/yy/dd timestamp. Then, forum users can see the age for every post is without first having to open and view the full entry.

    More Info
    I frequently scan posts that show up during my search or entry of new ideas. If an entry is very old and has no votes, I would likely not spend any more time reading the entry. On the other hand, if I could see the entry is fairly recent (without first having to open the entry), I might simply vote for…

  16. Header and footer

    It would be great, if you could make it possible to change the header and footer, from 3 sektions to make 1 or 2 sektions. It would make my job much more simple and it would be usefull for many.
