  4. Fix bug with CPU Straining

    Whenever Excel is "left alone" with an open dialogue box (usually when trying trying to log out of the user) it starts hogging CPU like crazy. We're talking 99% CPU usage just for excel even though the sheets are just a few columns of numbers.

  5. Excel for Mac 11 vs 16

    I've been using office 11 as my major app at work and it was almost perfect until High Sierra. Easy customizable keyboard shortcuts, customizable toolbar and menu. User friendly VBA and merge with Word. A bit slow while filtering applied, but I could cope with that.
    After High Sierra came along, I switched to Office 16. Nothing to be customized, funky and very annoying animation when click on a cell and tonnes of bugs. VBA has some new limitations. Very inconvenient to use application, so I had to switch back to Office 11. It's working fine on High Sierra, but…

  6. auto recovery and everything else.

    Auto recovery never works. Since this awful version of Excel (now on 15.39) crashes frequently, I am losing work too many times. Not once have I been able to recover a file after a crash. The autorecovery directory is always empty. I think I'm done with this. In a real attempt to post positive feedback to improve the OFFICE 2016 programs, not one of my suggestions, often supported by dozens of other users, have been acted on. Microsoft clearly has no interest in supporting the MAC version of Office. It's a disgrace that a company with such a global monopoly…

  7. Nothing works in Excel 16.7 after upgrade to build 171017

    Yesterday (2017-10-19) I received a Office Insider Fast upgrade for Excel and after that nothing works. I have the danish version of Excel installed and I can't work on neither new spreadsheets nor existing ones. If I try to enter a value in a cell I get the message "Advarsel: Ingen objekter fundet." (translates to "Warning: No objects found") If I try to edit existing content I get a new window asking me what I want to group by... Nothing works. Please see attached screenshots.

    Anybody got any ideas to what this could be?

    Please help, I'm desperate.

  9. Make Application.CalculateFull work again...

    After a recent update (15.39 is current) Application.CalculateFull does not work as before. I have a spreadsheet with calls to several vba functions in cells. To update the cells from time to time I made a button with an "Application.CalculateFull" call. Before it worked like a charm, now I get a "#Value!" error in every cell with a function call. When I press "fn+ctrl+alt+F9" the cells get updated correctly. Why is Application.CalculateFull broken? Please fix!

  10. Excel is taking 100% CPU even though I have only 2 spreadsheets open with not much data and no complex formulas (no VB) and just a few tabs

    This is a problem. If I reopen the very same spreadsheets, it takes less than 5% of a CPU. (In fact, it often terminates with an error.)

  11. Content scaling on 4K screens is terrible.

    MS, the content scaling on MS excel is terrible for macs. any doc that has 85% zoom on windows must be zoomed to 120% on mac for the same level of viewing. This can be proven by opening the same file via VMs.

  12. after upgrade to mac siearra 11, the excel shows text upside down and also mirrored

    'after upgrade to mac siearra 11, the excel shows text upside down and also mirrored'
    The impression is that Microsoft is doing everything possible to annoy Mac users and try to get them to move to use window machine. Each Microsoft upgrade creates a new problem to the office for Mac, and in particular with outlook and now with excel and so on.

  14. constantly crashing and losting data - at least always save user work!!!!!!

    this app is in need of serious redesign of basic functions - like saving work before a crash. I am done with excel and losing my time due to this horrible application. MS means losing time and money.

  15. Cannot paste into field in UserForm when displayed on Mac in Excel 2016

    Context: A spreadsheet with a macro created on a PC with a UserForm.
    When run on a PC, the user can copy and paste values into the form fields (in our case, a long URL). When run on a Mac, the Paste command is unavailable, both from menus, context menus and the keyboard.

  17. version 15.39

    It is displaying the file contents upside down. Most lines will correct when you do something to refresh the screen, but not the column headings for a table.

  18. trusted locations

    Why is there no way to create a trusted location for the mac?
    After upgrading to 15.38 (170902). And for heavens sake why should I get for every minute get a warning dialog about trust issues. My document doesn't have a macro or any thing. Isn't there any quality checking??
