  2. Microsoft Office undoubtedly provides one of the best productivity

    Microsoft Office undoubtedly provides one of the best productivity toolkits and software. Each of its applications like MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint serves specific purposes. It also includes in-built features like MS Teams and cloud storage to enhance your productivity even more. If you purchase the MS Office 2019, it will be a one-time purchase but if you go for MS Office 365, it will be a subscription-based plan. These are the latest MS Office suites that will offer excellent results. You can know more about these products by visiting the site https://us9office.com/ .

  3. Stop removing leading zeros

    Our inventory system is ruined because we've just discovered that Excel removes leading zeros from barcodes (in fact leading zeros from all numbers) when you import or paste-in.

    This is truly mind-numbing because...
    1) You're running data - why would you ever do this?
    2) You always discover this nonsense after the fact with is so frickin' painful.

    For the love of God, why do this and why change stuff automatically with no user input or notification? Get it sorted.

  4. Allow MM/DD/YY as a default date format

    Allow us to set the date format somewhere! I like to use MM/DD/YY format, to keep columns neat and tidy.

  7. "Paste Number Formats only" in Paste Special Submenu

    This is totally missing! You can Paste VALUES with Number Formats, or FORMULAS with Number Formats, or ALL Formats including borders, backgrounds and foreground colours, but you CANNOT Paste Number Formats ONLY! Most of my wasted time in Excel is from this tedious task! There should definitely be an option for "Number Formats Only" in the Paste Special Submenu, if not a "Number Format Painter" as well!

  8. xcel for Mac - Find and Replace - Needs BOX found Formatting Option

    Hi, I'm color blind and have difficulty finding highlighted items in Excel for Mac when using Find/Replace in the search bar or from the Edit menu. I believe many people would benefit from the ability to add a highlight to the box in various colors or bold and change the outline size and color. Thank you, Scott

  10. 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)

  17. Warn when merging cells that comments and notes are lost

    I've lost hours of notes in an excel sheet and didn't even realize the notes were deleted. So please add a warning or some indicator that warns the user that notes and comments are lost when you merge cells.

  19. Make cells able to overflow

    The text in a cell can wrap, shrink or, as per default, overflow the cell edge. And when double-clicking the edge of the column header to make the column set to auto-width, if the cell is not wrapping or shrinking the column width will expand to contain the whole text.

    In some cases, I'd like the text to keep overflowing even though the text is larger than the column width. A kind of "ignore when determining column width"-setting. It would probably fit best at the same place as the wrap/shrink setting.

    I would use it for constructs like a list…

  20. Conditional Formatting by row

    I often come across instances where I need to heat map a lot of lines of data using heat map option in conditional formatting. However to do this by row I have to select a row at a time. I tried to do a via script but my scripting skills aren't great. Could we get a option where we can do the heat map by all data (currently available) as well as heat map by row of data? heat map by column may be useful for some also.

    Happy to be contacted too explain further/upload examples.

    thank you!
