  1. preserve colors in charts on different computers

    I frequently send spreadsheets with graphics to colleagues and clients. Frequently, the colours of graphs, charts etc are different on different machines. I need them to remain the same as I created them. Please introduce a feature to lock colours to prevent them from changing,

  2. Put the color back in the Quick Access Toolbar icons

    Put the color back in the Quick Access Toolbar icons, some are easily distinguishable only by red or green, such as delete sheet row vs insert sheet row.

  5. Lasso (select) tool for multi selecting objects

    I have written about before a couple of years ago and many people supported my idea (really a complaint). It is still not possible to select multiple objects , say in a complex flowsheet I have drawn. This feature was available in earlier versions but was removed, casuing a massive increase in time to select objects individually. I have called this a lasso tool in the title because I notice that there is a lasso tool in in the "DRAW" menu, for selecting multiple drawn objects. This is great for folks doing simple sketches with the simple drawing tools. Surely…

  6. Picture

    Insert pdf picture

    (Excel 365 on Mac Mojave)

    If I directly insert a small pdf picture by dragging it in an Excel worksheet, it looks nice, but after saving and re-opening, it's blurred ! See pdf insert1 for comparing before and after saving.

    If I use 'Insert/Picture from file' from the menu, I only get a quater of it ! See pdf insert2.

    This was not happening with Office versions prior to Office 365. Consequently, all documents I had now look quite odd, and I cannot fix them because of these bugs.

    When Microsoft will treat that bug ???

    When…

  8. when i select a graph, put a temporary highlighted border around it so i can see which graph i'm referring to (out of many)...

    ....when i eg have to select/change source data for this graph, and have many graphs and tables lying around, a border would help me recognise the graph, especially for those with poor short term memories

  9. Excel for mac could not copy chart to word with 'enhanced metafile'.

    Please find the attached pictures of this message. I show comparison of menu that I mean. Copy options for Mac are left with 4 options, without 'enhanced metafile'. But for non-mac user, we could use 'enhanced metafile'. So adding this feature would be a great deal for Microsoft 365 mac user.

  14. Faint green search feature is frustrating

    The search feature is visually awful. The faint green outline does not stand out at all. Please use a bolder/brighter color or highlight?

  15. I can't copy a sheet to another sheet in a OneDrive document if it has a graph in it. Visualization is a main reason one uses spreadsheets.

    There are many cases where I do analysis on one data segment and then want to repeat it with another data segment. I want to copy the sheet I just finished, put in the new data and have the next sheet done. I can't because the graph that shows the first data visually prevents the sheet from being copied.

  16. Bar chart with each data point shown

    Nowadays many scientific papers require the bar chart showing the mean of the import data with error bar together with each data point being displayed. Only Prism can plot this kind of bar chart. Would Excel improve its system so that it can include this property in plotting bar chart in the coming future?

  18. Solución problema con gráficos de Excel en Mac

    Versión office: excel 365. Versión Mac 10.15.1 y anterior

    Problema: imposibilidad de crear gráficos en excel. Al seleccionar datos y dar insertar gráfico no aparece nada en pantalla. Al intentar crear algunos tipos de gráficos excel se cerraba.

    Solución: en Preferencias del sistema - Idioma y Región - Avanzadas tenía puesto como separador de miles "." y como separador de grupo "Ninguno". Re-estableciéndolo a los que vienen por defecto (separador de miles "," y separador de grupos ".") funciona.

    Notar que las soluciones propuestas por el soporte técnico de office (re-instalar excel, actualizar sistema operativo Mac, crear nuevo perfil mac...).…

  20. Please fix new glitch in preparing graphs

    Another new glitch. Having created a formatted graph to my liking, I expect that copying the graph and changing only the cell addresses for the data (in Select Data) for a new graph, will not change the formatting. But no, the line and marker formats change. What a pain. Annoying but OK to re-format if only 1 graph but I am preparing a report with more than 30 graphs. What a time waste.
