  1. Remove account information in top

    Please remove account information in the top of office programs.


    1. I don't care which user is logged in.

    2. It is useless information. P

    3. People around me is not supposed to know who I am.


    4. So please hide it under "File" or whatever.


    I want however to see the file name! I have 4 excel docs open but have no clue which ones because there is no room for the document name, because of this account information in the top.

    Please remove it.

  2. To apply a function on Chart Title...

    When we visualize the data, we need the Chart Title to be dynamized. İt is impossibe to

    apply Simple Excel Functions like Textjoin, Concat, Concatenate, etc. on Chart Title Cell.

    To keep Chart Title interactive, we implement the necessary Functions combination in

    another cell and make link from Chart Title Cell to it.

    From time loss point of view, Direct implementation of Functions Combination on Chart

    Title Cell would be very practical for Excel Users and appreciated.

  5. Excel Options title bar

    Excel Options title bar doesn't match the current theme of Office as Word & Outlook.

    For example, when we enable the black mode, the title bar still white!
    Same this with PowerPoint, OneNote (win32), and Access.

    Could you make them consistent?

  7. Same Ribbon Design as Office 365

    as an Office Insider, i would like to recommend a same ribbon graphics design (just like the white ribbon with colored title bar that corresponds to what office apps you use, found in Office 365) on MS Office 2016/2019 too. I think it would be a great idea to have unified and uniform design between Office apps :))

    wish i had the chance that this post/idea will be noticed and make some actions :))

  9. Produce Ratio Charts between two assets

    Please allow users to produce ratio charts between two assets. You already allow multiple assets to be shown graphically. For example, show the ratio between XLV and SPY. This is done by dividing XLV by the SPY value for the same day and then plotting over a given time period.

  10. Solid Default Trendline

    Some time ago, the trendline default changed to "round dots," and it looks terrible. I honestly can't bear to look at the dotted trendline. Thankfully, I am able to change to a solid trendline, but still very annoying. Please fix this ASAP.

  12. Scanning into Excel

    In Apache, you are able to scan a document directly from your scanner into word. From Word, you can cut and paste the document or picture into Excel.

  13. Insert Shape: Add Dimension Shapes (Linear, Aligned, Radial, etc) with grips

    As an engineer, I like to put graphics in my calculations with dimensions, but I have to draw the dimensions from individual lines, arrows, text boxes, etc. I would like to insert predefined shapes for dimensions of different styles that can be edited/modified with grips. Similar to dimension styles in autocad. Ideally the text box for the dimension text would be included, but I'd still be thrilled to have a single shape object for the dimension. I could still always insert my own text boxes for more customized appearance. Orthogonal dimensions would especially be helpful if they could also be…

  14. Add Mouseover to Insert -> Illustrations ribbon

    Add the option to the Insert ribbon under sub-ribbon Illustrations for mouseovers. Mouseovers would function similar to comments, but be geared towards placing a picture. Advanced options could allow the picture to be saved with the excel file, or act as a hyperlink. The mouseover ribbon object would attach the image to the active cell.

    Additionally, a mouseover formula that uses hyperlinks "behind the scenes" would be useful, where the formula could allow the hyperlinks to be formula driven. Default behavior would be to look for the picture in the excel file's directory location if a location isn't specified. Cell…

  15. Make Data Label ordering (Value/Category/Series etc) available on Funnel Charts

    I've been advised by one of your agents to submit this.

    On most charts, if you have data labels, you can double click the value/category/series within that label and change what it displays, this allows you to show it in any desired order Category/Value/Series, Series/Category/Value etc etc, but for some reason on Funnel Charts, you cannot do this. Considering the nature of Funnel Charts, they Category name on the axis takes up a lot of space, so usually it's removed and a data label used instead to sit on the bar, but there is no control over the data label…

  18. Theme availability

    I would like to request to kindly provide dark theme that will be applied to whole worksheet not only on ribbon. it is most preferable if Dark Gray or some other effective color along with black theme is provided for working night to reduce eye strain.
    it would also request to kindly give option to change outlook body color (Switch background) like available in black theme i.e. not available in Dark Gray.
