  1. Add Australian towns to the Map feature.

    It seems that currently the maps feature can only be used on a state level for Australia. Would it be possible to have additional towns added so it could be a more useful tool please?

      Entry in a password field of a UserForm should be masked in Excel 2016 Mac (as it was in Excel 2011 and in every Excel version on Windows)

      • Changing Dark-/ Black Mode isn`t possible (Mac Version)

        In the Office Version "16.20 (181208)" for Mac, a "Change Theme" Drop Down Menu is missing. Me and Microsoft Support didn`t find any Menu.

          • 関数のヒントで、名前付き範囲が隠れないようにしてほしい。

            関数の引数に名前付き範囲を指定しようとした時、関数によっては関数ヒントで名前付き範囲が隠れてしまって見られなくなってしまう。
            添付ファイルでは、3つある名前付き範囲が2つしか見えていない。一番最初(上)にある名前がヒントで隠れてしまっている。

            • Excel for Mac で、関数の引数が全部見られるようにしてほしい。

              LOOKUP関数の引数TRUEとFALSE、MATCH関数の照合の種類、SUBTOTAL関数の集計の種類などが表示されない。
              Windows版のExcelだと、数式の入力の際にその箇所にカーソルが来ると、全てが表示される。

              • Shortcut "Cmd+Shift+," or "Cmd+Shift+." for current Date and Time

                It used to be possible to enter a date or a time with these shortcuts I wrote in the headline, without selecting a specific cell.

                Now it needs to do a double click in a cell, to enter the date or the time.

                I know its not a big deal, but for me personally (hopefully for many others as well) is it better the way it used to be.

                With the best wishes

                  • On long spreadsheets, offer a popup that will automatically freeze the first column or row of data.

                    On long spreadsheets, offer a popup that will automatically freeze the first column or row of data for easier reader use. I'm a teacher and I use excel for everything and this option is not always available on shared files.

                    • Allow switching between Light or Dark theme in Excel.

                      With the new Mohave MacOS update, the dark theme setting has become global which now impacts MS Excel for mac. With the dark theme turned on the colour scheme on excel looks horrible and is very harsh on the eye because of massively contrasting colours. See ribbon screenshot attached, the colours stand out. If you have a sheet which has been colour coded to explain things, visually the sheet stands out and is very harsh on the eyes.

                      There should be an option within Excel to switch back to the "Light" theme, but for people who like the dark theme,…

                      • PivotTable

                        When I click into a PivotTable from out of it (just from out of it) or when I move the selected cell over a PivotTable and stop there in the moment the PivotTable Analyze and Design menus appear the keyboard arrows don't move anymore.

                        If I click again over any cell of the PivotTable (i.e., when the menus are already loaded) I can use the arrow keys - what I think should be done automatically.

                            • Bring back 30 years of Keyboard Shortcuts

                              Keyboard shortcuts remained fairly standard from Excel's earliest days (I started using it with version 2.2a, don't know if they go back further) until Excel 2001 when somethings like, for example command-b was moved to bold text instead of clear text, but those changes were remapped onto the control key for those of us that had been using them for a long time.

                              Now they have mapped BOTH to bold, and removed the keyboard shortcut for clear altogether. Likewise fill down no longer has a keyboard shortcut.

                              I was excited to hear that keyboard customization was returning, but neither of…

                                • Strange Excel bug I encountered, curious for an explanation.

                                  so try this out. in one cell do 13/6 in another do 7/6. you'll get 2.166666667 and 1.166666667. Subtract 2 from the cell with 2.166666667 and 1 from the 1.166666667. You now have 2 cells with .166666667. Do an if statement on them to ensure they're the same. now take both cells and multiply them by 6. Both cells should contain 1. Do another If statement......They're different now right? Blow out the decimal places so it goes about 10 decimals deep and one changes to .9999999999990 while the other remains 1.....weird right?

                                      • More efficient process for changing data for graphs

                                        Here’s an idea… When changing the coordinates for a graph using “Select Data” after right clicking in the graph, it is great that the view switches to the actual data so that ranges can be easily selected. However, it would be even better if the view returns to the graph on leaving the “Select Data” dialog box. Often I have very large databases with the data I want to graph, often 40 or more for a single report. SO MUCH time is spent going back and forth between graphs and data, which are usually on different sheets, if not in…

                                        • disable horizontal scrolling

                                          Please allow users to disable horizontal scrolling (when trying to scroll vertically). When using two-finger scroll on a trackpad (like on a MacBook) it's impossible to pull straight down. There used to be a feature to disable this in Excel for Mac, but it has gone away.

                                          The reason for this is that normally we only need to scroll vertically and am finding the when I use the trackpad I often scroll horizontally as well without intending to.
