How can we improve Excel for Mac?

Fix the problem where the entire program runs so slowly it's unusable.

This program is excruciatingly slow. Every small function such as copy and paste takes minutes. I don't see how Microsoft Excel has any market share given how painfully slow it is. I've been an Excel user for years, but I'm strongly considering changing. Worst program ever.

    Even on last and highest MacBook Pro Excel is a punishment. Near an hour wasted for serious sheets when the task is done in min on an old PC.
    Our company will not pay anymore for this... sheet ;-) until Microsoft begin to consider seriously the Mac platform.

    Delete function takes like 20 min in a sheet of 1.5 lakh rows. Copy paste operations are very slow sometimes. My OS version is 10.13.1. High Sierra. Please help me fix this.

    I am simply speechless that that the Excel for Mac 2016 program remains unusable in November 2017!!! Just fix the all the issues like page scrolling in Page Layout View!!! Everything has to keep re-drawing every time I move somewhere else in a simple 3 page worksheet)!

    Also I don't know if it has to do with the forced return command I often used in cells (in all previous versions) but in certain cells, I can't select just one cell, it selects 3 cells, and when I enter data it gets entered 3 rows down from the cell I entered data in. I can't even clear whatever is wrong with the formatting, or whatever is causing the problem!

    I am still running Sierra on my Mac. I keep going back to Excel 2011, which is unsupported and makes me very uncomfortable. I have 4 more licenses which I won't inflict on my co-workers at this point. Wasted money! I have not even tried the other programs in this suite.
