How can we improve Excel for Mac?

Allow users to set the default format to use for cut and paste

Currently if I paste data into Excel from the internet or another workbook, the default is to use the source format. If I set the preferences to display format options, I can then select an option to display the data in the destination format. I have to do this every time, but I ALWAYS want to display the data in the destination format - so I need to be able to reset the default to use destination format, but I cannot change this. You need to make the default format user-defined.

    Yes, ability to select default paste format (i.e. plain text) would save me so much time.
