  5. Change Default Currencies in Dropdown Menu Excel

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to change the default currencies I see listed in the dropdown menu for currencies.

    I'm in the EURO zone. Microsoft has decided I see GBPound/Euro/RMB/CHF which makes no sense to me! I never EVER use the Swiss Franc or Chinese RMB, while the USD is not in there... ????

    It should be such an easy software adjustment to select your own currencies (and order) of which currencies show in the dropdown menu. Why have currencies in shortcuts that do nothing to help the user?

  8. Conditional Formatting (Blink/Flash) when value is TRUE

    Hi.. Wouldn't be it great to when we apply any condition formatting to any cell or a row/column instead of having a still color we can make it flashing/blink color. This can easily allow the user to identify the records.
    Criteria for flashing/blinking
    1. Number of Blinks/Flash
    2. Recurrence Blink/Flash
    3. Customize blink or not to blink upon opening the workbook

    Regards, Faraz Shaikh

  11. Request of revival of gradient color feature on cells

    I'd like to use Excel as sketch of the knitting diagram of Hawaiian codes.
    Then, I could express silver colors at Excel ver. before 2016, but now I cannot.
    I cannot make difference between silver color and gray color.

    To express such shiny color; silver, gold, I hope that the feature will be availeble again.

  12. opentype

    Enable the "features" of an OpenType font. Especially the "Number Spacing" feature is really important to line up in tabular form

  13. Add option to disable recent fonts

    It would be a great idea if there were a way to disable recent fonts.

    The recent font list can get clogged up very quickly when testing which font to use.

  15. Options to disable all and parts of auto formatting

    When importing data either from other applications or copy and pasting from other sources excel's auto-formatting corrupts data sets. It would be useful to have an option to turn off auto-formatting in part and in whole. This has been one of the biggest drawbacks of the programme for years now.

  19. Conditional formating of LInes

    If number above this cell is less than number below than this type of line; or
    If number above this cell is greater than number below than this type of line; or
    If number above this cell is equal than number below than this type of line.

    I have spoken to others about this, and am 'told' that the formatting is possible. When I try to do it, it has never worked. Either I am not understand it, OR something is not complete in the Conditional Formatting protocols. I'ld like to format hundreds of cells for this evaluation. and right…
