  1. Save As... Location

    To have a different version of a file I used to open it, edit it, then Save As... rename hit enter, but I'm very surprised that it is not saving it in the same location of the first vesrion, instead it is saving it in the last used folder of saving.

    please I need it to remember the current location of the current file, and when Save As... is used it should save it in the same location of the current file.

  5. "linked picture"

    One of the most exciting features in Office 365 is Linked pictures and the opportunity to dropdowns with images via named ranges to create interactive content. It is a game changer in terms of being able to hold people's attention.

    This works perfectly on Windows 10, but on the Mac, the Linked pictures (png or PDF) are scaled ~ 4x beyond the cell border and fuzzy. I reported this bug in July through feedback within Excel. I reported this bug 3x in 2019 to no avail. It is still not fixed. Ironically, linked pictures of text content are scaled correctly.…

  6. 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.

  7. Prompt user when copying down/across when rows/columns are hidden

    Would it be possible to prompt the user when copying down or across, when rows and columns have been hidden in a sheet.

    Without this warning, values may be copied infinitely which almost always causes critical memory issues or causes the application to crash completely. Furthermore, because of the issue, the document in some instances may not be recoverable.

  10. Calculation bug in Excel for Mac 16.38 (20061401)

    Floating point computation bug in subtraction. Two numbers that have two significant digits after the decimal each round perfectly. The difference does not round to two digits. (Screen shot attached in case the calculations work on other devices.)

  19. Fix the bug whereby "Ready" in the Status Bar is not working reliably

    I am seeking a workaround, or a fix by Microsoft, for this behaviour in Excel for Mac:

    In Excel for Mac 16.35 (20030802), the word “Ready” does not appear in the Status Bar when a file is first opened or after a save, instead the Status Bar is empty. The act of entering data in a cell changes to Status Bar to “Enter” and then (correctly) back to “Ready”. This occurs in .xlsx and .xlsm files. The vba expression Application.StatusBar = False does not result in the word "Ready" being displayed in the Status Bar (as specified in https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/vba/api/excel.application.statusbar).…
