  2. It was not intuitive to find "Click to Add". I search within help and within preferences didn't display it. Found it in Prefs->Edit

    My suggestion is to help users find the "Click to Add" feature. Specifically, if a Mac user clicks Help from the menu bar and types the phrase "Click to Add" or does the same search in Preferences, that they are taken to the option.

  7. Fix usabilty 'not found' problem when item is outside multi-selection

    If you have a selection of more than one cell, and then you search for something that is in the sheet (but not in those cells) you getL

    Microsoft Excel cannot find the data you're searching for.

    If you are certain the data exists in the current sheet, check what you typed and try again.

    OK

    This is highly misleading and a common source of user error, because a) users may not realize multiple cells are selected; b) it says 'in the current sheet' when it really means 'in the currently selected cells'; c) Checking what you typed will have…

  8. Does not follow Mac user interface guidelines, very confusing!

    Big confusion between ribbon and Top menus. It is hard to find commands on the ribbon vs the top menu. I had to use the web version and couldn't find the command that I was looking for in the ribbon! Had to download the file to my Mac to edit. If it's not FULL compatible why have a cloud version. As a very long time user of excel since the '90s you're going the wrong way

  10. Please add the "search for a function" capability on Excel for Mac, like it exists on Windows

    Windows allows users to search for a function if they can't find it themselves... this is very user-friendly. Can you please do the same for the Mac Excel?

  11. Ctrl+M to merge cells

    I've noticed that there is no default key binding for ctrl + M and think this would be fantastic for it to be the "merge" function of highlighted cells. Having to select cells and then click merge each time is more arduous than it needs to be.

  12. Give customer service?

    Some MS genius once said "I've got a great idea! Let's just cut all customer service to our paying customers and make them figure it out amongst themselves!"

    What other industry does this? Market Cap for MSFT $1.31 trillion. God forbid they offer help to their buyers.
    How can you improve Excel for Mac? Don't be greedy, offer help.

  14. Allow users to disable "opening file warning"

    Whenever I open a LOCAL .png file (unlike a .jpg) from a Hyperlinked cell, Excel forces me to click OK on a dialog warning me "Some files contain viruses..." DUH.

    This forces me to make an extra step, that is completely unnecessary, and support has posted that it is intentional and not a user controlled option.

    Listen, I'm using your software, on MY COMPUTER, with my files, and it is NOT Microsoft's job to protect me from me.

    No wonder I dumped Microsoft Windows years ago.

  15. Add the File tab that Windows have into Excel for Mac

    Please add the File tab that Windows has next to the Home tab, and make it available for Mac users as well. It has so many options that Mac doesn't have. We need for you to make available the same features for both systems

  16. How to Fix Windows 10 Activation Error Code 0xC004C008

    Source: https://synorton.com/blog/how-to-fix-windows-10-activation-error-code-0xc004c008/

    Windows is undoubtedly an efficient OS, but its productivity increases several folds when it is activated. The activation process is simple, as you merely need to redeem your 15-digit activation code on the setup menu. However, there are instances when you might be faced with the error code 0xC004C008. This error code mainly occurs when you install any Windows product several times, as the Windows license only allows to connect a single device.

    If your operating system is crashed and you have bought a new device, then you need to install new Windows, change your hardware, and a…

  19. I need and would like to be able to open up the dialogue box on my Mac.

    I am taking a course at the local community college in my home town, it seems that the course text book is geared more towards the pc version while I have a Mac. I have ran into a complication where in a homework assignment one step it is asking me to do is to expand the dialogue box. However with the version that downloaded from the school that function is not available for the Mac. Please include this function in the next update.

  20. My Excel 2016 is part of Office 365. Excel has stopped playing a sound on saving a file and it changes centimetres to inches. Can this stop

    My Excel 2016 is part of Office 365. Excel has stopped playing a sound on saving a workbook and it changes centimetres to inches. Can this be stopped? I can change this by going to General/Preferences and tick the play sound box and change inches to centimetres. But this is only while the workbook in use is open. After closing Excel reverts to no sound on saving and inches.
