    You can fill a series for H1,H2, it will go on to H3 etc..BUT if the data is 1H, 2H, it will NOT fill in 3H. It is a programming bug, that if the alpha is in rear the series will not work.

  3. Show referenced cells without having to double click on the cell

    I would like to see the referenced cells by selecting the cell (without having to double click). If a cell contains a formula referencing other cells, I would like to see which cells are referenced without having to double click. This allows to dramatically improve speed of finding errors in calculations. For instance, if a formula is supposed to repeat in cells next to each other, and each cell is the sum of three cells above it, and now I change the first to sum 4 cells. If I forget to copy that formula to the cells next to it,…

  4. Add revision history on documents

    I want to see my previous data sometimes even if I delete it, so even after I save a document, I want to go back and view what I put originally so I don’t have to re-enter that idea if I want to go back.

  5. Fix VBA editor

    VBA editing is frustrating. Cursor keeps jumping back and it is impossible to use the editor. This happens in different MacBooks Pro and OS’s: 2009 (El Captain), 2014 (Mojave), 2019 (Catalina).

  6. Right Click Problem

    The current version of Excel for Mac (19120904) could not use right click to appear the format cells function and other functions such as insert/remove the cell/row/columns, which is not good for editing data

  8. Moving cell pointer with tab key

    I installed Office 2016 on an iMac and a MacBook Pro. On the MacBook after hitting the tab key the cell pointer moves down to the next row, because on the iMac it moves to the next right cell in the same row. In the options I didn't find a way to change that behavior.
    Is there anybody who knows a solution? I prefer the way like in Windows, to the next cell on the right.

  9. Why Parasite Won Oscar for Best Picture?

    Parasite made history by winning Oscar for best picture, but how and why?

    The South Korean film directed by Joon-ho, Parasite has won the Academy awards for the best film, and it came as a big surprise to many. The viewers and industry giants were defining the 92nd Academy awards by the inclusion of safe choices, and only a few were ready for such a big surprise. The South Korean film not only made into for best picture but also Joon-ho got the award for best director. The inclusion of some big names in the category of the…

  10. The Passage: Will Netflix Pick The Show?

    Source: http://setup-request.net/the-passage-will-netflix-pick-the-show/

    The Passage is among the most known TV series based on a book series. The vampire-thriller drama, but the series failed to live up to its book counterpart. Now, FOX has decided to cancel the series due to the audience dropped at the end of the first season. Also, Instagram posts from the youngest character Saniyya Sidney improves the lot of traction. Yet you must not panic as The Passage might have a great chance to grasp by Netflix or other networks. Here is everything to know about the matter:

  11. Simplify (and complete?) keyboard customization

    The customize keyboard tool seem geared towards what is on the tabs, rather than the myriad of menu options available in excel. This makes finding where keyboard shortcuts can be customized tedious and sometimes impossible. For example: command-b (later control-b) invokes clear in every Mac version of excel (that I've used, so 2.2a and on) prior to 2016. I can find nowhere to assign this key in excel 2016/2019. Ditto for Fill Down. Where is insert? Command-I for the last thirty years, now it's...gone?

  15. Toggle automatic formatting of dates.

    The automatic formatting of numbers to dates is incredibly frustrating when you dont want it. I am often in a situation where I need to paste a table into Excel, for instance to calculate something from the table. It always happens that some cells in the table get autoformatted as dates and this is extremely annoying. The work-arounds are difficult and cumbersome and I can never remember what they are, so my workflow gets interrupted because I have to google how to do it.

    I have very little use for the autoformatting of dates, but i appreciate that some people…

  18. A real worksheet template

    I create a lot of workbooks with a repetitive worksheet. For example, a workbook would contain multiple sheets representing a particular day for a project, with the workbook representing the project.

    Each of these worksheets have exactly the same formulas and layout, so I create a 'template' worksheet in the workbook, which is then copied to create each of the worksheets.

    If I want to change the template, I have to go through each of the copies to manually alter the formulas.

    What would be cool is:


    1. Create a worksheet as a template

    2. Reference that template in copies (Copy from…

  19. Allow fill handle and cell drag-and-drop

    I don't understand why these two features are lumped together in one check box because they are totally different features. I like the fill handle, but not drag-and-drop. As a result, I have this option set to off by default so I don't accidentally drag cells, but then I have to turn it on every time I want to use the fill handle. Please make a separate button for each feature.

  20. A cella védelem egyszerűsítése direkt módon. Illetve, ha jelszóval védem a munkalapot, akkor személyre szabható legyen az opciós lista.

    Túl bonyolult a pozíciók védelme. Elsősorban a függvények védelme nem értelmes számomra. A jelszó védelem esetén megadott lista személyre szabhatóvá tétele. Nem tudom hogy, kell.
