  1. Formula Evaluation (Auditing) doesn't exist for Mac?

    I know, I know...Mac Users are different, but it doesn't mean they can't benefit from clear insights to their Formulas.

    Alt+T, U, F in Excel for Windows gives a step-through window for evaluating a given formula. This isn't an option on Excel for Mac. Is there any work being done to enable it? Just wondering also why such basic functions for maintaining workbooks wouldn't be available across platforms.

    Looking forward to hearing back.

    Thanks.

    BPC.

  4. Plot markers centred (instead of offset)

    Since Excel 365 (Mac) plotting circle markers (and other) are offset from the real data. See attached image "Excel_2019.jpg". The center of the markers should be exactly on the red line, but they are not.
    This was fine in Excel:mac 2010, see attached Excel_2010.jpg.

    Obviously something has changed significantly in the Excel plotting functionality which causes this issue.
    The problem is not directly visible if you plot the markers only, but in my case I have to plot lots of line graphs including markers, and the markers are offset from the line, so it looks like the data does not…

  5. Is anyone having issues running Excel Office 2019 with Mac OS Catalina 10.15? Mine just quits every time

    Is anyone having issues running Excel 2019 with Mac OS Catalina 10.15? Mine just quits every time whether opening an existing doc or creating a new one. It worked perfectly with Mojave.

  8. Customize Touch Bar

    Please add the option to "Customize Touch Bar" for MacBook Pro's. It's usually found under "View" in just about any other application, but unfortunately not within Microsoft Office products.
    While Excel does have a set of standardized Touch Bar buttons, you can't change them to what you might use most often, rendering it fairly useless.
    Apple has had a Touch Bar feature since 2016 so it's not exactly a new feature. I understand that Apple is a competitor, but please put the "Customize Touch Bar" feature into your products!

  10. Mac OS update to Catalina

    Just ugraded to Catalina and now unable to use my Office package, contacted Microsoft and been told I need to pay and upgrade to 64 bit version, Catalina does not support 32 bit. I was happy with what I had and previously paid for. This is ridiculous surely office packages should be supported and future proofed against OS updates,

  13. Create equal functionality for Mac users such as Power Query.

    Allow Mac users to access all add-ins such as Power Query. We are paying the same price but getting inferior service.

  14. Temporary stored files during saving Excel file cannot be deleted on NAS - .xlsx.sb

    since the update to Mojave, Excel documents store repeatedly (not all files) temporary folders which are not deleted on NAS when one opens them with Microsoft Office 2016. This behavior seems related to the content within the Excel files. It looks like that as long as no diagram is saved in the Excel document the associated temporary file will be deleted as intended.

    But if diagrams ore a more complex document structure is being created in the documents, then apparently not only temporary documents but folders are created during saving. After closing the document, you can no longer delete the…

  17. Allow Keyboard Shortcuts in VBE

    The visual basic for applications editor for the Mac does not have the ability to edit keyboard shortcuts. The most common editing shortcut used is to step through code while debugging. In windows VBE this is F8, and those of us who are familiar with the windows version would like to have the same experience on the Mac. The current keyboard shortcut requires two hands and makes it very awkward to step through and debug your code.

    According to Madoc Huang MSFT in the Microsoft community forum, I should post this here because this feature is not available on the…

  18. Make all functions and tools available for both Mac and Windows OPS.

    Why can't all the same tools be accessed on different operating systems? I don't get it I am in college and this is a constant problem. Not everyone using this program has Windows as their operating system. Why even offer it to download on other operating systems if all the tools won't be accessible. Today, I was trying to use the forecast sheet function and that is not available on my Mac, yet all the other forecast functions to make formulas are there. It just doesn't make sense.

  19. AutoFilter Spacebar Selector

    Like in Windows, it would be much faster to use keyboard shortcuts for things like selecting items in the AutoFilter list (i.e. using the space bar). As of today, you cannot highlight and select different items in the filter list without the mouse. Also annoying, is the fact that selections are applied instantly, causing nonsense CPU work and worse yet the window shifts in view as calculations are running. Messy.
