  1. Remove "Copy of" to Save as in version 16.17

    In Excel version 16.17, when you click on "Save as" it adds "Copy of" to the filename. In all previous versions, it never did this. Please remove the "Copy of" in the next release of Excel for MAC.

    • Allow customization of the ribbon without a 365 subsription.

      Without a 365 subscription you cannot control the size of an image in a header. I placed a 1" high picture into the header and Excel automatically expanded the image to cover the entire document when printing.

        • high sierra

          Chart editing issues. Seems to be the refresh of the chart is not working, so it looks like (for example) you have not selected or are not typing in the Chart Title, but when you scroll away and then back again the editing appears.

          We are running Excel 16.6.6 on Mac OS High Sierra and getting the issue described in the attached video.

          • Fix an important hyperlink issue!

            When I insert a new hyperlink to a file located on an external disc (HDD) in my Excel chart, everything works well. When I open again the chart after I've saved it, I have to give an additional authorisation to open each hyperlink I previously inserted in the chart. Besides, there is no way to deactivate the warning window that appears each time I try to open one of the hyperlinks (there isn't the "security centre" like in Excel for Windows).

            • button for inserting rows or columns

              Would it be possible to create a button in one of the toolbars to make it easier to insert rows of columns with an easy click. Especially multiple rows or columns in an easy click would be nice!

                • If Circular reference error appears on the bottom of my spreadsheet, why not Click on that at bottom of spreadsheet to find errors??

                  If Circular reference error appears on the bottom of my spreadsheet, why not Click on that at bottom of spreadsheet to find errors??
                  Instead, I had to go to Formula tab, Formula Auditing, and then Circular reference. I'm not sure if you have to do this on every reference, but very Tedious!!

                    • Enable hyperlinks in Pdf export from Excel

                      In previous reactions from Microsoft to a user question if hyperlinks can be exported to Pdf from Excel, it says this is not possible due to the structure of Pdfs. This doesn't seem a valid reason, as it does work from a Word export. Numbers from Apple does it too. There you can even add hyperlinks to individual words inside a tekst cell. In Excel this is only possible for the whole cell. So, please implement this function in Excel, so we can make reports without hassle.

                      • Excel keeps opening at login, even though the button is not selected. I can't stop it from auto opening when my computer starts.

                        Figure out how to TURN OFF AUTO OPEN. The option is NOT selected, but it keeps auto opening EVERY TIME I START MY COMPUTER. I have tried all the options on recommended, I am about to uninstall this program.

                        • Bring back option to remove black line around embedded Word documents

                          Enable Shape Format --Shape Outline options for embedded Word documents on spreadsheet that appear as objects. In past versions of Excel, you could remove the black line in formatting so that text appeared on the sheet without a border. Haven't been able to turn in reports for over a year in newer version. Only works with the text box which defeats the purpose of being about to Word functions such as grammar, etc. inside Excel.

                                      • TURN OFF THE ANIMATIONS. Your developers are ten year old idiots who have no idea about normal work flow. Dumb apes that like shiny things

                                        Whatever you turned off, it's not enough. I don't want or need animation moving between cells. No one does. Let us turn it off. Or I should just move on to another application perhaps. I've been waiting for MS to stop being useless for like 20 years now.

                                        • Allow tool tips for buttons embedded in a sheet that run macros

                                          This functionality (adding a tool tip) works if an embedded button operates a hyperlink but not if it activates a macro
