  4. 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.

  7. 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.)

  17. Fix disappearing 1000 separator nuked by April 2020 update

    20 year veteran excel user, dismayed when recent update eliminated 1000s separator display and insists on treating last 2 digits typed as if AFTER a decimal point.NOT a simple checkbox fix. NOT a region fix (though changing . to - changes 123.45 to 123-45 and changing group character to ; previews 1;234 but causes an error on save. Changing group char to , seems to work in Number Format dialog box, but not in worksheet.
