  1. Desperately need to make Excel for Mac the same as Windows version

    Taking business classes that require me to bring my laptop to class and use my own computer to do assignments. It's inconvenient that I have to use public computers or buy a Windows computer simply to do homework. If you truly valued your customers, Mac and Excel need to be as compatible as it is on the Windows operating system.

  4. Chapter Creation

    Chapter Creation

    Select a group of spreadsheets and form with them a kind of chapter, with the same color as the guide. So when you click on a chapter all spreadsheets are available for viewing (as is current Excel) and those that don't belong are collapsed (hidden) within your chapter. In the attached file only the yellow tabs would appear and below them the chapter names. When you clicked on the Green chapter the green tabs would be displayed and the others hidden. It's a way of working with multiple linked documents within Excel with a clearer view of spreadsheets…

  5. Customize Touch Bar

    Please add the option to "Customize Touch Bar" for MacBook Pro's. It's usually found under "View" in just about any other application, but unfortunately not within Microsoft Office products.
    While Excel does have a set of standardized Touch Bar buttons, you can't change them to what you might use most often, rendering it fairly useless.
    Apple has had a Touch Bar feature since 2016 so it's not exactly a new feature. I understand that Apple is a competitor, but please put the "Customize Touch Bar" feature into your products!

  6. How to Fix Windows 10 Activation Error Code 0xC004C008

    Source: https://synorton.com/blog/how-to-fix-windows-10-activation-error-code-0xc004c008/

    Windows is undoubtedly an efficient OS, but its productivity increases several folds when it is activated. The activation process is simple, as you merely need to redeem your 15-digit activation code on the setup menu. However, there are instances when you might be faced with the error code 0xC004C008. This error code mainly occurs when you install any Windows product several times, as the Windows license only allows to connect a single device.

    If your operating system is crashed and you have bought a new device, then you need to install new Windows, change your hardware, and a…

  9. Data "Form" for excel users on Mac computers

    I really miss having Data "Form" available for excel users on MAC computers. Is there any chance this can be reinstalled. I use it all the time with my spreadsheets.

  10. I need and would like to be able to open up the dialogue box on my Mac.

    I am taking a course at the local community college in my home town, it seems that the course text book is geared more towards the pc version while I have a Mac. I have ran into a complication where in a homework assignment one step it is asking me to do is to expand the dialogue box. However with the version that downloaded from the school that function is not available for the Mac. Please include this function in the next update.

  11. My Excel 2016 is part of Office 365. Excel has stopped playing a sound on saving a file and it changes centimetres to inches. Can this stop

    My Excel 2016 is part of Office 365. Excel has stopped playing a sound on saving a workbook and it changes centimetres to inches. Can this be stopped? I can change this by going to General/Preferences and tick the play sound box and change inches to centimetres. But this is only while the workbook in use is open. After closing Excel reverts to no sound on saving and inches.

  12. Add the File tab that Windows have into Excel for Mac

    Please add the File tab that Windows has next to the Home tab, and make it available for Mac users as well. It has so many options that Mac doesn't have. We need for you to make available the same features for both systems

  14. Convert Word Documents to JPG via Batch Word to JPG Converter

    We have listened about converting the images document to PDF or Microsoft Word, but it may not be possible for you when it comes to trying it. You may be wondering how to do it or is it easy to perform or not? Here is the option of Batch Word to JPG Converter as from its name, only you may guess it is for converting multiple files together. Thus if you require to convert the multiple files or more than 50 files, then you can use it and convert the data easily without any hassle. If you need to convert…

  15. Allow users to disable "opening file warning"

    Whenever I open a LOCAL .png file (unlike a .jpg) from a Hyperlinked cell, Excel forces me to click OK on a dialog warning me "Some files contain viruses..." DUH.

    This forces me to make an extra step, that is completely unnecessary, and support has posted that it is intentional and not a user controlled option.

    Listen, I'm using your software, on MY COMPUTER, with my files, and it is NOT Microsoft's job to protect me from me.

    No wonder I dumped Microsoft Windows years ago.

  17. Control of command button colour in Excel for Mac 2011

    Currently I have to use Excel for Mac 2011 as the later versions do not have the ability to create user forms. This is subject of other suggestions. But here I suggest a change is made to the 2011 version allowing the user to set the background colour properly.

    The default setting is incorrect - off white. When the default for the Mac version should be RGB 170,170,170. It also should have an option to be changed for any user. The default border is non-existent and is clearly an error.

  18. Support Forms! This should have been done from the start. I did not see it was not in Office for Mac 2019 when compared to the subscription.

    What other Windows features have you omitted to implement? Do I have to pay for this basic feature by buying O for Mac again?

  19. Take the time to put more guidance online!

    What's really galling about excel for mac is that there's no online guidance from MS - I just wasted an hour trying to track down some basic stuff about document inspector and removing metadata before sharing (which, not surprisingly, is 5x as ******* a mac).

    SO regretting switching to this product from bulletproof Google sheets.
