    • Listen to your customers

      There are several lines of discussion on the problems faced by people using Office 2016 & 2019 for Mac relating to VBA macro programming which have been ignored for a considerable time (at least 4 years). Microsoft need to do something about this. No relative ref control, userforms and dataforms are all missing and make the software unusable for serious work.

      Other software companies will fill this gap if you don’t!

        • Adding notes to formulas?

          Formulas can get extremely messy with messy data. This is especially true when a formula is 10+ lines long. Often, re-reading a formula a few weeks later is absolutely indecipherable. Can we somehow be able to add notes to a formula, similiar to the ' in VBA?

            • 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

                  • Enable Macros permanently for a given file

                    Make my response on whether I want macros enabled on any given file part of the saved details with the file.
                    I know it has macros - I wrote it and yes I want them enabled - always - every time I open this file. Ask me for the next file and remember my response for that one also.

                      • repair problem

                        When using <Control><;> to input the date it sometimes goes in correctly as per settings (English NZ) dd/mm/yyyy and sometimes it is mm/dd/yyyy. This is in the same excel file and same formatted cells.
                        I'm using Excel for Mac 16.21.1

                          • Keep lines when filling cells with color

                            Make it so lines between cells don't disappear when you add fill. Having the lines gone makes it hard to read across the sheet horizontally.

                                While it is possible to create waffle charts manually in Excel, please add functionality to create waffle charts with one click. Waffle charts are arguably superior to pie charts for visualising proportions.

                                  • Cannot open password protected spreadsheet because password is too long

                                    Problem: I am attempting to open a password-protected spreadsheet, but the dialog box asking for the password will not let me type the full password. Why does the password box have a character limit that doesn't match Excel 2010? I cannot open this spreadsheet now..
                                    Solution: Please don't set up a password limit... the limit for file level passwords now is 15 characters. The PC Office 2007 & 2010 apps now support up to 256 characters, but on Mac this feature isn't taken over.

                                    • Wrap text doesn't work anymore with multiline cell

                                      Since last Insider Version (190123), the "Wrap Text" cell formatting is giving totally wrong carriage return with multiline cell text (way too much spaces are taken)
                                      See red zone in the printscreen attached.
