How can we improve Excel for Mac?

Bug: Excel in Office 2016 search box focus is not maintained when switching apps

I found a search focus problem when switching apps.

For example, I have multiple Excel spreadsheets open. In one of them my input cursor is in the search field at the top right. Then I use CMD+Tab to switch to another app to check a list for the next thing I want to search. Then I use CMD+Tab to switch back to Excel.

Even though the search field seems to still be selected, the input focus is actually now in a completely different open spreadsheet. So if I start typing, instead of entering a new search, I'm typing in a cell in another spreadsheet.

I've reported this via the feedback "frowny face" in the app but it was suggested I report it here as well.

Thanks,

doug
