Revert the ungodly change to make the first key press open a cell instead of type into it
Why did Excel 15.22 change to make the first key press open a cell instead of immediately typing into it? That hasn’t changed that since the 90s and is makes Excel incredibly frustrating to use.
This behavior ONLY occurs on the Mac version and NOT the Windows version.
Still broken in 15.25.

Still broken in yesterday's 15.23! Is this a joke?

Agree with Chris completely! This is a terrible change. I should not have to change my preference to edit directly in cells for Excel to work like it has since its creation.

This is incredibly annoying!! I've found that if I set the Excel\Preferences\Edit to: X Edit directly in Cell this doesn't happen. However my preference is NOT to Edit directly in Cell and therefore this behavior occurs.
