  2. Bring back saving worksheet notice on bottom toolbar

    In the 16.34 it appears that the saving worksheet notification with the progress bar at the bottom of the worksheet has disappeared. This is quite bothersome when saving a large worksheet as you do not know if it is saving or when it has completed a save.

  4. Excel freezes constantly - Cataline on 2012 Mac

    Excel is constantly freezing up after updating to Catalina OSX. I will force quite excel and open again and whenever I would click on a cell it just freezes, leaving no option but to quit excel and try again later. Some days it would work for longer than others. No such issue on Excel on Windows- very frustrating to deal with it as studies are heavily dependent on excel

  5. Quit automatically hiding columns and allow the user to see their own data without "unhiding" what I never hid in the first place!

    Crazy, I know. Every time I work with my grade book I have to "Unhide" valuable information that the useful program thinks I don't need to see. I have added columns to the left in order to stop this, yet the dumb program keeps hiding the names of my teachers. Why can't I format the document to NEVER hide anything unless I ask it to?

  6. Fix "advanced search" to find all cells containing a value no matter how they are formatted

    advanced search will not find values regardless of format. Find "0.01" should find one cent, one percent, one british pound, or antyhing that is scientifically expressed as 1x10^-2.

  7. Change "SORT" (under DATA, SORT) function to MOVE cell content, not just change the cell contents, so as to preserve absolute references.

    If you reference a cell in a table with an absolute reference, and then SORT the table manually, the absolute reference will move with the referenced cell, as expected.

    HOWEVER, if you use "data, sort" feature to sort the data, the absolute reference will NOT move correctly, because SORT changes the content within the cells, and doesn't actually move the cells.
    Humans expect sorting to MOVE the columns, not just change the data within the columns.

  8. Deactivate Tools in Home Ribbon

    In version 16.35 when you start entering a formula, notably one that involves more than one tab, the formatting tools in the home ribbon deactivate and will not turn back on. If you close/reopen you can get the ribbon.

    Running Mac OS10.15.3

  10. Opening 20MB, complex pivot file freezes Mac

    Opening 20MB complex pivot file freezes Excel Mac, and CPU spikes to 1000%...
    Clicking somewhere after a while regains control for a while, then new freeze, rinse-repeat.
    Does not freeze Excel for PC though

  16. Fix the scatter plot bug where 60=6.0

    I have come across this strange bug/feature a few times in Excel, scratched my head and exported my data to Kaleidagraph in order to make a plot that's correct, but this time I drilled a bit deeper:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tOO6dJx6v0

    It seems that if you make a scatter plot (perhaps other plots as well?) using data created with the function "indirect" Excel chooses "Custom" as the number format for the graph and the format "0.0" which for some inexplicable reason displays 60 as 6.0. I have found a workaround (shown in the video clip above), but surely Excel is not supposed to…

  17. My excel crashing if I run VBA macro that has looping formula

    My excel crashing if I run VBA macro that has looping formula.

    I try to press esc twice and CTRL+. to stop the VBA macro calculation, however nothing happening, so I need to force quit my excel.

    When I try the same file in Excel PC, it works perfectly, I can stop the looping with Esc button.

    Please fix this issues on next version of Excel, I think this issue occurs because Excel for mac take much GPU Resources when run a looping VBA

  18. Windows version. Excel shows that the "Integer" fu

    This is not a new Idea, but an Error just discovered on the Mac version as well as the Windows version of Excel. The Integer function in Excel currently reports that the Integer of any decimal value less than -1 is equal to -1. This in NOT correct. The Integer any number less than 1 should be ZERO.

  19. Consistent F2 Key to toggle point and edit

    There are a number of Dialogue boxes including Define Names, Data Validation where the F2 key does not toggle between edit/point. This inconsistency hampers productivity and increases frustration. Shortfall observed across a range of Apple devices/Excel versions. BTW Windows versions are fine

  20. MAKE IT SO IT DOESN'T CRASH!!!

    Guys! Excel crashes every 15 mins or more! It's almost unusable and I have to use it. It ridiculous how bad it is. I shouldn't have had to pay money for this and it makes my job 10x harder. Please fix it. For the amount of money I paid for office (and excel) it should be a working program. Right now Microsoft is a thief of my money and time with the amount of times I've had to redo work with all the crashes. I don't want to hear how you fixed it, just fix it!! (yes, I've updated the…
