  1. Fix Cell Navigation in 15.17

    Since the 15.17 update, there is now a noticeable delay when moving between cells using the arrow keys and sometime the cursor does not respond at all to the key press. Please fix (it was fine in 15.16).

    • Make Option+Green = Maximize (with Yosemite). Word and PowerPoint do this.

      With Yosemite, the green window control button changed to cause windows to go Full Screen (rather than Maximize). People who still want the green button to cause the window to Maximize can get that functionality by using the Option key while clicking on the green button. But not with Excel. Works for Word and PowerPoint.

      • arrangement on dual screen

        I have 2 displays attached to my apple computer. If I want to display one document on one display and the other document on another display, the windows are moved to the primary display when switching between documents using cmd + ~ (switch window). This makes it almost impossible to have 2 documents open next to each other. It would be better if the window position is not affected when switching between documents.

        • Add scrolling arrows at bottom to allow easy viewing

          Some arrows on the scroll bars would be nice to navigate individual cells without using the mouse scroll or shift+mouse scroll to view Excel sheets.

          Becomes rather tedious working on large sheets and is quite clunky.

          • Fix PageUp/Down Left/Right key functions that were broken by 15.16.0 Update

            If you are in the middle of a large spreadsheet, these keys apparently move the cursor off screen, but the display does NOT move. They seem to work OK if you start from the R1C1 cell, but not otherwise. It all worked fine before the 15.16.0 update on 11/10/15.

            • Bigger Default Powerpoint View

              Make default cell size larger like the PC version, or allow user changing of default zoom to 125% which is comparable to PC. Both Word and Excel open in unchangeable default views too small on Mac and people have been asking for this size change for years now.
