  1. Repeating Rows cause 1st page cell not to hold outline!

    This is a bug - PLEASE fix it!!! I have talked to engineers and I have several other friends on Mac Big Sur and latest 365 Excel and IF you have a repeating row selected in Page Set up/ Sheet... then, no matter what that row is, when you click into a cell on first pg, the outline disappears immediately so you may forget which cell or cells you were about to work in! Besides the lagginess, this is an awful problem, please fix it! Your engineers told me it's a BUG... please fix ASAP!!!

  2. Shortcut for moving from tab to tab

    No doubt it already exists, but I can't find it! Please add the shortcut for moving from tab to tab to the main menu, or add somewhere obvious.

  4. do not convert space char(32) to Non Blanking Space char(202) on data import/paste

    Excel for Mac converts 'regular' spaces [ char(32) ] to Non Blanking Spaces [if using MacOS Roman ] which is char(202). Those characters are not removed by TRIM. The conversion is extremely problematic for data import / export and data clensing. This behaviour is platform, character set specific. I've seen it also happen on Windows where the regular space, when using UTF-8, is converted to Char(160).

  6. 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

  8. What does a single white rose mean?

    The single white rose conveys a strong and deep message of hope, respect, and love. It conveys the purity of that love and deep respect. When a single white rose is given, it not only signals a level of humility but also conveys an everlasting love and devotion between two people.

  13. STOCKHISTORY function should return split and dividend adjusted prices

    STOCKHISTORY function should return split and dividend ADJUSTED prices. It is otherwise useless for historical prices and calculations such as historical volatility.

  15. 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)
