  2. Dark Mode as simple and easy just like outlook!

    Outlook has that button to instantly switch backgrounds to match dark mode and it is extremely helpful when working at night. The bright white excel workbook makes it painful to use at night.

  3. When you freeze panes within a workbook why cannot you not freeze multiple columns at a time?

    I wanted to try to freeze column A but view B-S, then freeze T to then view this as three separate sections. It appears that this cannot be done in excel

  4. Freeze Column 1 and row 1

    It would be great to be able to freeze row 1 and column A at the same time. Not sure why this is still not available.

  7. Make the search text WHITE.

    Black cannot be read on dark green by people like me with poor eyesight so the search function become useless.

  9. Row header highlight color

    Hello,
    I am using Excel 365, on the latest version available for Mac OS X. I want to be able to change the row header highlight colour. The default and only colour is much too pale, and virtually impossible to differentiate visually from the other rows/columns in the header. This makes work with larger Excel sheets much harder for no good reason. This was not an issue with previous versions of Excel. Please add an option for the user to easily pick a row header highlight colour. Note : I do not want to modify the cell highlight colour, just…

  10. Turn the work area also dark for dark mode in Mac

    Currently Excel in Mac turns only the tool ribbons dark when dark mode is on. This could be made better by making the sheets too in dark.

  11. Annoying Trace Precedents / Dependent Window

    Why is it necessary to click precisely on the "arrow" when tracing precedents or dependents through to another sheet? Can you please re-design this icon to provide an easier user experience

  13. Search hightlights

    When searching for a word/phrase, the area is shown by outlining the appropriate cell. This is difficult to impossible to see if you have bold-outlined cells or a lot of information in a document. It would be nice if the cell/info was highlighted by color. Better still, if one had a the choice of what color highlight to use.

  14. 16.43 UPDATE REMOVED FEATURE OF COMMAND-H IN MAC WHICH HIDES EXCEL APP

    16.42 maintains Apple/Mac standard application command-H. 16.43 REMOVED command-H and replaced command-H with HIDE WORKBOOK. consequently any Apple power user has been confounded with excel apparently not functioning correctly. This is a mistake. Please rectify immediately. Command-H works with every other MS Office Product properly including Word, Teams, Outlook, Powerpoint.

  15. integrate excel with Mac OS spotlight search (do that on Windows with Windows search, too).

    When using Spotlight Search in Mac OS I don't get results from the contents of Excel sheets. Would love to see that.

  16. Can I remove the all comments view button at the top right of excel?

    I often accidentally hit this button when wanting to do a search and because my sheet has many comments I lose time while they load.

  18. find function shows total

    When you search within excel, show the total number of cells that return that value, and highlight them for easier finding/searching rather than just a grey line around the box.

  19. sheet scroll

    Hi!

    I would like the tabs containing sheet names below to be scrollable if windows size width is not enough to show all tabs.

    Clicking the arrow button to scroll left or right of the tabs is very awkward.

    Google Sheet has its sheet name tabs scrollable.
