  2. Change the font set back to include indices / powers, so that you can use concatenate to write in formulas.

    I used to use =concatenate(b2,"x",char(178)) to write a power in a cell e.g. two x squared. They've changed the character set, and it seems the concatenate function. Can't get it to work in Office 365 either.

  6. Try not to suck so much *** when you make programs.

    My idea (I know this is radical) but have you guys ever tried maybe not sucking so much at what you do? Everything Microsoft for Mac sucks *. I can put my laptop on the floor, ** all over it, and that would be 100 times better than anything you all come up with. Maybe try that

  7. More template varieties

    I love being able to use templates when using Microsoft applications, however, I have found that with Excel, most of them don't apply to what I am doing. I struggle having to start from scratch and have rarely found a template that worked for me. I hope to find more templates that I can use after submitting this.

  10. Please add "Link to this cell" as an option in capturing a hyperlink.

    Google Sheets has a very useful feature that lets you capture a hyperlink to a specific cell or range of cells. I can't find this in Excel anywhere. It's very useful for collaborating.

  13. Recent file list

    Allow users of MS Office application users on Macs to customize or disable the recent list. It was on previous versions and available on the current PC version, so why not on the Mac?

    Stop treating Mac users as second-class citizens and provide full functionality to the Mac version of your apps. You’ll never convince a Mac user to switch to a PC — giving us ****** apps just begets resentment.

  14. Please bring back copy from Excel to Word without the gridlines

    In Excel 2011 you could copy (cmd-c) a selection of cells a worksheet and paste it into Word as a PDF and the gridlines would not be there. In Excel 2016 and Office 365 the gridlines appear in Word. One work is to "Copy as Picture" and then select "As shown when printed". (Also, baffling why "As shown when printed" isn't the default when just a plain copy now does "As show on screen".)

    I'd much rather have copy from Excel not paste in the gridlines like it was in Excel 2011 but if this is the way it has…

  15. Excel Help is pretty much useless. It never returns useful results.

    Searching Excel Help returns no results for very basic searches that I know do have functions/menu items/options available. For example:
