  1. Font smoothing

    Please enable the font smoothing on Mac Book pro (not retina display).
    The fonts look horrible on non-retina displays.
    Moreover, I read a lot of complaints about this missing feature.
    Thanks.

  2. Quick access toolbar

    The quick access toolbar is only really useful when it is bespoke. We need the ability to add or remove icons in this toolbar.

    Feb 26 – Even more good news – we’ve completed work on this feature and you can now add/remove commands from the QAT as of Mac Excel 15.19.1. Do note that the set of commands you can add/remove is still limited, but we’re working on enabling full customization, like in Windows Excel.

    (older) Great news folks – we’ve started work on this feature.

    Cheers,

  3. Bring back keyboard shortcut customization

    Believe it or not, what the vast majority of Mac users of Office are looking for is not compatibility with Windows versions of the software, though keeping the features up to date is nice. After having been able to customize keyboard shortcuts for (how many?) years, we are told that Mother Microsoft thinks its better for us to use Windows Control shortcuts that don't do the job we're used to being able to do. Why would you want to make the software less useful?

    I believe this represents a small software development savings relative to the number of customers it…

  4. Text import wizard - horizontal scroll is not working.

    When I import a text file and want to select all of the columns as text the horizontal scroll feature does not work and I can only change what ever I can see in the window to text. I use the feature on a weekly basis. This makes excel 2016 unusable for me on a Mac.

    Hi everyone – thanks for your persistence with this suggestion. This issue has been fixed. To get the fix, please install the latest updates by going to Help > Check for Updates. If you have version 16.41 or greater, you should be able to scroll horizontally in the table shown in the text import wizard.
