  2. darkmode in the excel cells for mac

    The title says it all. It should already exist a dark mode that allows the cells to turn dark as well, not only the editing options.

    Ps: forcing me to opt-in of something just to post it... when you explicitly say that I can opt-out is a bad bad UX practice

  5. In the sheets at the bottom of the page it would be nice to be able to scroll through them all using the the trackpad.

    Make it possible to use the track pad to scroll back and forth through the sheets when there is too many to show on one page.

  7. Shortcut for moving from tab to tab

    No doubt it already exists, but I can't find it! Please add the shortcut for moving from tab to tab to the main menu, or add somewhere obvious.

  9. La possibilità di disabilitare la vista dei file recenti come era possibile nel office 2016 su microsoft 365.

    Nel vecchio office era possibile disattivare la visualizzazione dei file recenti aperti o modificati ma nel office 365 questa funzione non cè piu.

  10. stacked excel workbooks (windows or mac)

    i would be a nice idea if we could be able ta manage our excel workbooks as stacked ( one behind the other) and hovering the mouse over to be able to see the stacked workbooks.

    its another way of grouping the workbooks, but one behind the other, so we would not need to scroll so much left or right when we have many workbooks in a file. !!!

  12. Floating live spreadsheet snippet window

    I'd like the ability to select a set of cells and immediately make them into a temporary floating mini-spreadsheet window that persists even when moving between tabs (or worksheets). Sometimes, I'm changing a cell that links across pages and I want to see the immediate effect on another page, or I'm changing a cell on another page and want to see the immediate effect on a given page. This would provide persistent, convenient access to a small set of cells (or, e.g. a plot) without having to go back and find them again or sift through a bunch of windows…

  13. When you freeze panes within a workbook why cannot you not freeze multiple columns at a time?

    I wanted to try to freeze column A but view B-S, then freeze T to then view this as three separate sections. It appears that this cannot be done in excel

  14. Freeze Column 1 and row 1

    It would be great to be able to freeze row 1 and column A at the same time. Not sure why this is still not available.

  17. Make the search text WHITE.

    Black cannot be read on dark green by people like me with poor eyesight so the search function become useless.

  19. Row header highlight color

    Hello,
    I am using Excel 365, on the latest version available for Mac OS X. I want to be able to change the row header highlight colour. The default and only colour is much too pale, and virtually impossible to differentiate visually from the other rows/columns in the header. This makes work with larger Excel sheets much harder for no good reason. This was not an issue with previous versions of Excel. Please add an option for the user to easily pick a row header highlight colour. Note : I do not want to modify the cell highlight colour, just…

  20. Annoying Trace Precedents / Dependent Window

    Why is it necessary to click precisely on the "arrow" when tracing precedents or dependents through to another sheet? Can you please re-design this icon to provide an easier user experience
