        How do I update to this version that includes the pictures in the header/footer? I have Office 365 version of Excel for Mac.

        Doesn't show for me? Liley a user issue but when I try to select Insert Picture from the menu the option to do so is greyed out.

        I’m so pleased that the Insert Image option has been reintroduced to Excel for MAC. However, why are the image sizes for Format Picture in the Header & Footer given in inches when the default sizes have been set as metric (cm)? Images inserted in the normal part of the spreadsheet show as cm in the Picture Format Tab! Yes, you can live with this, but it is rather inconsistent. Look forward to the fix soon in a new version.

        Thank you Microsoft. At last we have got back to some of the functionality of Excel 2011. Now for the VBA editor to be fixed.

        This is great news, although the latest version of Excel (as of last week) was crashing my coworkers Mac, so he had to uninstall Office and reinstall without doing updates. I hope whatever bug is in the latest update is also fixed when they release this update.

        HAHAHA yeah, sometimes a zen like attitude to things helps. Still, I would love to know what the issue is/was. Does MS not see a need to support the mac crowd, are they short staffing the team or maybe they are not even full-time on mac issues. It would be sad, but considering the other issues on Windoze and their Office package I am not surprised we get the short end of the stick. Just like the limited version of Office 365 for Mac. Same price fewer features... does anyone know whether that was ever intended to be integrated on the Excel Online version?
        Let's rejoice and give praise to Steve and the team for now! Hurray!

        Dan with regards from rainy Stockholm!

        Well done, always great to know someone is listening. Look forward to using it again.

        This is still under review since Nov 2015? This is very basic for any professional use of spreadsheets. Microsoft, get with it!

        And you have no comment on this in 18 months and the votes and comments keep piling up . DO SOMETHING !!!!

        I had to download Sierra update so I could accept the Office Security updates...went for the full Office upgrade and between both upgrades, the simplest use of Photos and snippets is now all 3 step processes. What the **** is wrong with you? Please put out the fix to be able to drop a photo or snippet anywhere in Excel, Word or Powerpoint again. So **** frustrating...

        How utterly ridiculous Microsoft that you would remove this feature from excel. You are a business, you understand how features like this are used in business, well small business anyway. Perhaps you are just so big now that you have forgotten the small business people out there trying to survive.
        Talk about being disconnected... I can see this has been an issue for some time and still nothing has been done.

      • Kimberly SilkKimberly Silk commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is the most basic of features. I cannot believe I cannot do this in Excel for Mac. The feature was there in 2011 - why on earth would you remove this feature?

        Consider the URGENCY HIGH on this.
