    Thanks for posting about this issue. It would be very helpful if you would provide more information and screen shots to show how the words appear in Word and PowerPoint so that we can see the difference in Excel.

    Also, if you could provide a small example of the keystrokes that are used to enter one of the words on a US English keyboard (set to Myanmar or Myanmar QWERTY), it will be very helpful.

  3. Option to disable the Financial Market Disclaimer and the Linked Data Type Security Warning

    Please create the option to disable the Financial Market Disclaimer and the Linked Data Type Security Warning. They are annoying and they show every time I open the spreadsheet.

  5. Autosave to work with iCloud. (Not everyone has OneDrive!)

    Please can you enable Autosave to work with the Mac's Cloud solution, iCloud. Although I personally use OneDrive, I don't want my excel files saved there. I have them all saved on iCloud or locally on my HD. Users should be able to select which cloud service they wish to use for Autosaving. (including other wider providers).

  7. Make Microsoft Excel for Mac EXACTLY THE SAME as Microsoft Excel for PC.

    If Mac subscribers of Office 365 are getting less features and PC subscribers, prorate the Mac annual subscription accordingly. If not, MAKE BOTH VERSIONS OF EXCEL HAVE THE SAME MENU FEATURES!

  9. Changes to VLOOKUP/HLOOKUP

    I suggest 2 changes in Vlookup/Hlookup:

    A. VLOOKUP/HLOOKUP functions user can only search for the lookup value in the first column/row, and the result column/row is always after (right/bleow) the lookup column/row.
    I suggest to make it more flexible by letting the user decide which column to search in and which columns to retrieve the value from.

    B. Sometimes user need to drag lookup function to several columns and needs the column index to be incremented, for example to be 3 in the first column, the second column to be 4 and so on, I suggest to add new parameter…

  10. Improve performance on Mac version of Excel

    I have a cheap company-issued Dell laptop. My Mac is a Core i7 with 16gb of RAM and yet Excel (and all Office apps) run so, so much better on the Dell. I get that Microsoft makes Windows so of course that's going to be their priority, but the Mac apps are just poorly coded. There's no reason for them to be as sluggish as they are. I will be switching to a Mac for work soon, and I'm really disappointed that my Excel performance is going to drop so significantly.

  11. Many Shortcuts are not available in the Mac version

    Like Excel in the Windows version, many shortcuts are not available in the Mac version.

    MAC version should be more user friendly.

  12. Need a way to turn off a recurring disclaimer after it presents itself a few times

    I've started using the Stocks data types and now all workbooks that have them get the disclaimer banner on each sheet every time I open it up. After seeing it a few times, the user needs to have a way to turn it off. Otherwise , it just an annoyance. Thank you.

  14. Save As... Location

    To have a different version of a file I used to open it, edit it, then Save As... rename hit enter, but I'm very surprised that it is not saving it in the same location of the first vesrion, instead it is saving it in the last used folder of saving.

    please I need it to remember the current location of the current file, and when Save As... is used it should save it in the same location of the current file.

  15. Full functionality with Excel for iPad

    I'd like to see the full version of Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) for iPad. The mobile version doesn't cut it, and I have to switch back to my Mac. The iPad Pro's more than capable of handling the full software.

  17. darkmode in the excel cells for mac

    The title says it all. It should already exist a dark mode that allows the cells to turn dark as well, not only the editing options.

    Ps: forcing me to opt-in of something just to post it... when you explicitly say that I can opt-out is a bad bad UX practice

  18. Grouping

    When grouping rows or columns, it would be nice if the +/- sign (to un-/hide them) would be at the beginning and not at the end of the selected rows (columns)

  20. Change the vlookup formula to have a default value if the formula returns an error

    I have to wrap my vlookups in an IF statement to check for the result being ISNA. Would be amazingly helpfuly if it could take another input patameter to default on any error condition (e.g. 0 or space are ones that I would use most often).
