  1. Excel: UserForm option should be returned in Excel.

    The UserForm command is not available in Office 365 (Excel). I need it!!
    Especially as user interface to fill in data in large Excelsheets.

  6. Toggle automatic formatting of dates.

    The automatic formatting of numbers to dates is incredibly frustrating when you dont want it. I am often in a situation where I need to paste a table into Excel, for instance to calculate something from the table. It always happens that some cells in the table get autoformatted as dates and this is extremely annoying. The work-arounds are difficult and cumbersome and I can never remember what they are, so my workflow gets interrupted because I have to google how to do it.

    I have very little use for the autoformatting of dates, but i appreciate that some people…

  7. QuickKeys to Collapse/Expand Row- and Column-Groups

    Regarding the Grouping of rows and columns, there are Quick Keys to
    - Group Rows (Cmd-Shift K)
    - Ungroup Rows (Cmd-Shift J)
    - Hide/Unhide the "+" / "-" symbols (Cmd-8)

    But not:
    - Collapse Group
    - Expand Group

    If this can't be done with a Quick Key, could you at least publish a VBA command I could use in a Macro?

  8. Important functionalities that appear and disappear, between updates.

    What happen again with PASTE WITHOUT FORMAT? (Option+Shift+Command+V), it’s so useful, and
    What happened with move around the Sheet with trackpad gesture with 2 fingers?

    You must have a defined application programming line, good things appear and disappear between an update and another.

    These functionalities (explained their disappearance in the first paragraph) are preserved by both Word and PowerPoint, I don't understand why they aren't transverse to all applications and maintain homogeneity in your products.

    I don't know if this is read by someone, or has any repercussion on the product, but at least I comply with informing about a…

  9. Add hotkey functionality to Excel for Mac

    It would be amazing if hotkey functionality was added to Mac, especially if it followed the same format as it does in Windows (instead of "Alt …, …, …" it would just be "Option …, …, …").

  10. Add Quick Access Toolbar button for 'Open'

    Excel for PC has a toolbar button for this function that can be added from the 'All Commands' list. Excel for MAC does not. The current process required 1-3 clicks to get to the list of files to open.
    Please add this button to the available options for the Quick Access Toolbar.

  12. Fix Copy > Paste Link..

    Repeatedly get an error message (Alert - Unable to paste link) when I use Copy > Paste Link from one sheet to another in the same workbook. I'm using latest Office 365 version of Excel on my Mac
    This is causing me to lose considerable productive time.
    Please can this be fixed?

  14. When will Excel for Mac bring back the shortcut for align right Command R?

    I was just reading complaints about this from 2017. Now we're at the end of 2019 and it's still not there, unless I'm missing something.

  15. I found what I think is a significant bug in Excel for Mac 16.29.1. I would like to show it to MS. How?

    In some cases adding two numbers gives an incorrect result. A digit incorrectly shows up in the 12th decimal position in the result when adding two numbers that are truncated to just two decimal places. The xlsx file attached shows an example. I'm attaching a PDF of the same file to show these results in case another version of Excel gives different results with the xlsx file.

  16. Restore Customize Keyboard to equivalent functionality as in 2011

    2019 has restored Tools > Customize Keyboard..., but it's quite weak compared to 2011's. First, there's no All Commands category. While there is a search, it only searches the selected category (and there's no way to select multiple categories), so you have to enter the search term then click through every category manually, which is kind of insane. Next, many, if not most of the commands have a description that's the same as the name of the command. Why bother? Finally, numerous commands are missing, even though the underlying functionality is still there. My most missed is Paste Values, but…

  17. MORE EFFORT FOR NAIVE USERS

    Many Microsoft products are so crammed with new features that make it difficult for folks like us that have not site manager. New systems suddenly morf without warning. For example, I edit types by letter, but the cursor clamps onto words when I want letters. Simple thing often do not appear in the help files. It would be nice to have a "old setup" option to let us start to adapt the new versions without sudden adaptation. And this is true with other MSFT office and other products

  18. Die Druckqualität von Excel 2019 muss verbessert werden. Linien als Haarlinien drucken, gestrichelte Linie müssen immer gleich aussehen

    Es kann nicht sein das im Jahr 2019 Ein Programm Linien schlechter darstellt als das Program von 2011. Haarlinien gestrichelte Linien müssen regelmässig sein

  19. 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 ?
