  1. Speed up the filter function on Excel for MacOs to work the same as the Windows version

    Filtering is infuriatinly slow---the filter changes the display as I update the selection, but takes a huge amount of time to do so.

    On the Windows version, the display dews;'t change until the filter dialogue box is complete, and the action is completed faster.

  3. Did you just kill a whole bunch of table formatting controls???

    Did you just kill a whole bunch of table formatting controls or is there a bug? If the former bring it back. What were you thinking. If the latter, though it seems unlikely, please fix. I used the legacy controls constantly.

  6. AutoFilter Spacebar Selector

    Like in Windows, it would be much faster to use keyboard shortcuts for things like selecting items in the AutoFilter list (i.e. using the space bar). As of today, you cannot highlight and select different items in the filter list without the mouse. Also annoying, is the fact that selections are applied instantly, causing nonsense CPU work and worse yet the window shifts in view as calculations are running. Messy.

  7. Increase number of rows that can be filtered to more than 100,000

    Increase number of rows that can be filtered to more than 100,000. 10,000 is way too small when we deal with our data base. Is there maybe a way to increase this manually ?

  9. 'Contains' should be by default option selected in Filter instead of 'Choose One'

    Contains could be the most commonly used option and system should allow to use this without using trackpad through shortcuts only. Cmd+Shift+F can put the filter. Then Option+DownArrow opens up filter but then there is not way to proceed with shortcut. User must have to use track pad to select the option (where I am suggesting it could be 'Contains' as default)

  12. Filter in a different language than the Excel default's language.

    Hi. I reported a problem as a question in:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/supportforbusiness/productselection?OSMCSignIn=true&wa=wsignin1.0

    Basically, I have my Excel in English language and my cells are in English format as well (UK). My subscription is Norwegian. I have the dates in my spreadsheet and when I filter it, Excel shows the months in Norwegian. The date is displayed as 23/02/2019.
    But, when I change the cells formatting to 23/Dec/2019, the filter works properly, displaying the month names in English.

    That's what I found.

    Rgds,
    Sergio

  13. Embed images in cells

    Users should have the ability to embed and image into a cell, so that when you sort data alphabetically, the image moves with its respective column. If google sheets can do this, so can Excel. The "move and size with cells" as well as "move but don't size with cells" options do nothing to help when alphabetizing other data in the same row.

  14. AutoFilter Dialog box is worse in 2016, the tick boxes don't stay in one place

    1) The tick boxes change locations depending on how many items you have selected. If you have one or two tick boxes selected the tick boxes are lower down because the "Equals" rows above have been filled in. If you have 3 or more tick boxes selected then there is just a single blank "Choose One" row. It makes it very difficult to select a bunch of tick boxes because the location of the tick box jumps around. This is new behavior from Excel 2011.

    2) The cursor is in "Choose One" empty box rather than in the "Search" box.…

  16. Bring back "Remove Duplicates" calculations in the dialog BEFORE executing.

    I tested with version 16.16, when selecting the range and clicking Data>Remove duplicates, it opens a window asking you to exclude any columns, but it does not show any calculation.

    When I tested with older version i.e. 15.41, when doing the same Data>Remove duplicates, I see the calculation. See attached images.

  20. conditional formatting in pivot table - widget

    In windows you get a little widget to select data and ignore sub-totals or totals in a pivot table, so you can add conditional formatting... the little widget does not pop up in Excel for Mac - can we add this in?
