  1. Color box - basic colors

    Hello,
    suggestion to change the color box so that the basic colors are red, blue and yellow. The reason is that green is not a basic color.

    Regards

  3. Convert MBOX to PST

    The Sysinspire MBOX Converter Solution is the most reliable tool for converting MBOX to PST files. It's a third-party programme that can export MBOX data to a variety of file formats, including EML, EMLX, NSF, and HTML, as well as Outlook. The user merely has to provide the MBOX file and then choose the file format to which it should be converted. All users can get a free trial pack that supports all versions of MBOX file-supporting email clients like SeaMonkey, Thunderbird, and others.

  4. 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.
    • 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.

  5. Makeover of Excel Charting for high-performance scientific engineering visualization with real-time scrolling, panning, zooming

    I proposed that there should be a makeover of Excel Charting to take advantage of much high-performance GPU-acceleration via DirectX 11 (rather than GDI/WPF graphics) and to bring Excel chart zooming and scrolling / panning into the 21st century like some superb 3rd party .NET graphing libraries for scientific engineering visualization. I am thinking of graphic packages like Arction LightningChart (https://www.arction.com/lightningchart-ultimate-sdk ). See the power of real-time scrolling, panning, zooming, cursor selection of time-series and other XY graphs. The Arction LightningChart demo on youtube to see what is possible: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CA-6o4ybmQ

  7. 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.

  9. watermark is extremely missed

    We really miss the watermark. . We work in excel so much and sometimes liked to add a photo or pic as a watermark in the background. It really gave a boring worksheet a little pep to help us get through the day not to mention it also looked better when presenting with a company logo in the background, charts can be so boring. We're so bummed it's gone.

    Draw
    Zoom = 40%
    RowH = 15; ColW = 2.14
    CircH = 11.65; CirW = 11.64

    Change Zoom
    Zoom = 25%
    RowH = 14.4; ColW = 2.11
    CircH = 11.17; CirH = 13.03

    The round shape is now an oval.

  17. Please make possible higher contrast colours to aid the visually impaired.

    Allow users to tweak colours/tones used in e.g. Excel scroll bar to identify where it actually is. (Grey on grey is a nightmare, sorry).

  20. Remove fade transition effects for Remote Desktop users

    Some of the fade effects used in Excel and other Office apps have a major impact on users with a Remote Desktop connection, even when using high bandwidth connections. The fade transition effect when enabling editing of a protected document is particularly bad and can freeze an RDP connection.
