  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Convert Word Documents to JPG via Batch Word to JPG Converter

    We have listened about converting the images document to PDF or Microsoft Word, but it may not be possible for you when it comes to trying it. You may be wondering how to do it or is it easy to perform or not? Here is the option of Batch Word to JPG Converter as from its name, only you may guess it is for converting multiple files together. Thus if you require to convert the multiple files or more than 50 files, then you can use it and convert the data easily without any hassle. If you need to convert…

  14. Support Forms! This should have been done from the start. I did not see it was not in Office for Mac 2019 when compared to the subscription.

    What other Windows features have you omitted to implement? Do I have to pay for this basic feature by buying O for Mac again?

  15. Control of command button colour in Excel for Mac 2011

    Currently I have to use Excel for Mac 2011 as the later versions do not have the ability to create user forms. This is subject of other suggestions. But here I suggest a change is made to the 2011 version allowing the user to set the background colour properly.

    The default setting is incorrect - off white. When the default for the Mac version should be RGB 170,170,170. It also should have an option to be changed for any user. The default border is non-existent and is clearly an error.

  16. Take the time to put more guidance online!

    What's really galling about excel for mac is that there's no online guidance from MS - I just wasted an hour trying to track down some basic stuff about document inspector and removing metadata before sharing (which, not surprisingly, is 5x as ******* a mac).

    SO regretting switching to this product from bulletproof Google sheets.

  20. Restore Customize Keyboard to equivalent functionality as in 2011

    2019 has restored Tools > Customize Keyboard..., but it's quite weak compared to 2011's. First, there's no All Commands category. While there is a search, it only searches the selected category (and there's no way to select multiple categories), so you have to enter the search term then click through every category manually, which is kind of insane. Next, many, if not most of the commands have a description that's the same as the name of the command. Why bother? Finally, numerous commands are missing, even though the underlying functionality is still there. My most missed is Paste Values, but…
