  1. Office 365 Excel ribbon design is a catastrophe

    The current Office 365 Excel (Mac) ribbon design should be 'revised' to previous versions. The font and icon sizes and styles are very difficult to read, especially for people with bifocals or altered vision. E.g., the 'Fill Color' icon used to look like a paint can and now appears as a faint tin can. Font sizes are too small, thin, faint. Just because you can change something does not necessarily make it better. Perhaps Office designers should be required to read Don Norman's design books.

  3. Excel 16.30 for Mac has a bug that inhibits the printing of comments at the end of the sheet

    Comments can be seen on screen as show comments or if print as displayed is selected then they print but overlay the spreadsheet. the option to print at end of sheet is available in the page set up but if selected the comments are not shown in print preview and do not print.

  5. Figures centered but units aligned

    In columns, units should be aligned with units, tens with tens and so on… It would be great to have numbers centered in the column but units aligned

  6. SUPPORT KERNING!

    I stopped updating excel at version 15.41 because every version which I have tried after that forces text to reflow when opening documents and text in these versions appears horrid compared to text in earlier versions. I finally realized what changed -- in 15.41 and earlier, excel uses the fonts kerning information, whereas subsequent versions ignore it. Why support for kerning was dropped is beyond me, but please please please bring it back!

  8. Make the formatting uniform to all Operating systems (windows and MAC)

    We have noticed various issues when an Excel file is created and then e-mailed to a Mac user. For example, certain cells do not stay highlighted. Also, when the Windows user sees a spreadsheet solely appearing on one page sometimes when myself (Mac user) receives it a Column or Row does not fit. Additionally, under page layout when select print headings this expansion of the sheet occurs. We have noticed various formatting issues and wish that the Excel program would be more consistent so that each user would have a similar view as well as experience using the program's lies.

  11. Customized asset management - Gestion tailles personnalisées

    I sometimes use Excel documents with a special layout (for example: width 1000 mm x height 100 mm). With Excel 2011, there was no problem. the standard procedure of setting the paper size ("manage custom sizes ...") from the print window allowed to get Pdf files with the correct layout.
    With Excel 2019 (version 16.31 on macOS Catalina 10.15.1), custom size management does not work properly. The situation is abnormal and needs to be addressed.

    J'utilise parfois des documents Excel dont la mise en page est spéciale (par exemple : largeur 1000 mm x hauteur 100 mm). Avec Excel 2011,…

  12. Protecting workbook from being opened

    It is preposterous that there is no mechanism to protect (all the sheets) in a workbook from being opened with one command. This is massive feature weakness.

  13. When will Excel for Mac bring back the shortcut for align right Command R?

    I was just reading complaints about this from 2017. Now we're at the end of 2019 and it's still not there, unless I'm missing something.

  14. Provide a CHANGE CASE button in the Excel tool bar (upper, lower,regular ...) like the one in Word

    Many of us use Excel not only to calculate but also to present tables and graphs. It would be VERY helpful if you could provide a CHANGE CASE button for the tool bar (and/or the Cell formatting menu). This feature existed for Mac in the pat (pre 2013) but has disappeared. It is VERY annoying. PLEASE PUT IT BACK!!!!!

  15. Repetitiveness in the process of a Time Trial Worksheet.

    I'm making a document for data consisting of time trials. However when Adding the time trials together, it has to be in a certain conditional format. And its inconvenient, repetitive, and time-wasting to put multiple 0s for everything to find averages, and sums of my time trails. ex. 0:04:32

    I feel this may be a quick fix. Would appreciate the effort.

  16. QuickKeys to Collapse/Expand Row- and Column-Groups

    Regarding the Grouping of rows and columns, there are Quick Keys to
    - Group Rows (Cmd-Shift K)
    - Ungroup Rows (Cmd-Shift J)
    - Hide/Unhide the "+" / "-" symbols (Cmd-8)

    But not:
    - Collapse Group
    - Expand Group

    If this can't be done with a Quick Key, could you at least publish a VBA command I could use in a Macro?

  17. what if we added a choice to transfer sheets from bottom to left side instead of column A?

    what if we can add a choice for users to transfer sheets from bottom to left side instead of column A?
    as excel user, I start using first sheet, then second one then third one then I find myself using high NO of sheets which makes finding specific sheet boring and frustrating. and if we have high NO of sheets, it will be harder even if I name the sheets

    but what if we had the ability to transfer all sheets from bottom to left side from top as they fill all column A and column A starts the next…

  18. Cell formats in Excel for Mac

    When modifying the format of a cell in Excel for MAC, one should be able to either save a custom format (currently it disappears when you shut Excel) or edit a default style or add a style to the drop down list. I have a date format I like and have to re-create if every time I want to apply it.
