  3. Enlarge the Define Name Dialog box

    The Define Name dialog box should be larger and/or should be able to be resized by the user. I have workbooks with a hundred names and I can see about five at a time.

  5. An option extended cursor

    Have aan option for the black square surrounding the active cell in focus to be maintained, but with the entire current row to be highlighted by a fainter highlight (perhaps a grey fill). This would aid me when dealing with multiple columns of data - a visual confirmation that I am not looking at data from a different row.

  6. Go back to allowing multiple lines to be highlighted and copied from the left margin.

    The older versions of Excel allowed you to put the curser on the left margin numbers, the plus changed to an arrow and you could select the whole row to copy or multiple rows to copy and paste, or delete. Please add that back. I am use to doing that. This new version has me very confused. I want to delete it and go back to my 2007 verson.

  7. Please make it easier to see the cursor in the spreadsheets, the little cross hair doesn't stand out very well

    Make it so that the cursor can be a different color than the gray which is what a selected worksheet is and blends to easily with the white background and gridlines. Larger, thicker and colored please

  9. Bring back customizable toolbars

    I just had to upgrade from 2011 to 2019. In 2011, I had made a customized toolbar that served my needs PERFECTLY, and there is not enough flexibility in 2019 to recreate it to meet my needs. The green customizable "quick access" toolbar is functionally useless because there is no coloration. I have partly customized the Home ribbon, but I still can't move things around to my liking, can't remove or hide certain unused elements, and can't group shortcut icons the way I want them grouped. I really miss my old custom toolbar!! Please bring back this functionality!

  10. Include Find All option in Find Dialog Box + Look In option to look in Formulas in the Replace Dialog Box

    There is currently no option to replace a term in your formulas for mac excel due to the lack of ability to "Look In" formulas before replacing all. Additionally, you are unable to use Find All in the find dialog box to check all mentions of a term within formulas to easily see all the times it is used

  13. It would be a lot easier to customize toolbars by dragging icon from inside the menu hierarchy

    It would be so great to have toolbar icons inside the menu hierarchy so that when you start realizing you're using a command a lot and want to add it to the toolbar, you can just drag it right from there, instead of stopping what you're doing and switching gears to go hunt for the toolbar customization menu (which is harder and less intuitive to find that it used to be in earlier versions).

  17. Quick time entry formats

    I use Excel for Mac and use a Magic Keyboard 2. The number pad doesn't have a colon (:) and so I often find myself needing to type in a time and then break away to type a colon with shift-;. Very inefficient."

    When the cell's format is set to time, it would be nice if you could both/either use the period key (.) which is included on the number pad in place of the colon (i.e. typing "10.23" would result in 10:23:00 AM), or be able to type a string of numbers in HHMMSS format (i.e. typing "102300" would…

  20. Undo/Redo (Command+Z) should be workbook dependent.

    Currently : Working in two or more workbooks in separate windows share an undo history.

    Idea : Workbooks should be independent and have individual edit history.

    For example:

    Workbook A : Data - sort - column A
    Workbook B : type "hello world"
    Workbook A : COMMAND+Z (undo) should undo the sort in workbook A.

    Currently it undoes the type in Workbook B.
