    Please add the support to insert files (objects) in the sheet. Now if there is some object inserted the excel app does not autosave to O365.

  6. Allow user to change the colour/style of highlighted cell.

    Allow user to change the colour/style of highlighted cell. Currently I spend way to much time looking for the faint green highlighted cell when I do a search. I would make the highlight colour a bright red to make it easy to see.

  7. SRS.EXCEL

    SRS. EXCEL.:
    yo no trabajo con formulas en las celdas.
    lo que pasa es que dentro de las celdas uso codigos propios de mi rutina cotidiana en lo que se refiere a control de mis colmenas de abejas.

  8. Recent Files

    Behaviour of "recent files" appears to have changed dramatically with the latest release. The list is empty since the update, and the "Recent Files" Windows refers to a login, but provides no mechanism for login. You are mucking around with the workflow of your users. Why would you make these changes?

  9. button for inserting rows or columns

    Would it be possible to create a button in one of the toolbars to make it easier to insert rows of columns with an easy click. Especially multiple rows or columns in an easy click would be nice!

  10. Ribbon: Allow import and export as in Excel for Windows

    In Excel for Windows you can export and import ribbons.

    In Excel 2019 for macOS you can't.

    Please add that function.

    To be honest, I'm disappointed about the fact, that users of the mac version have such disadvantages.

    I cannot see any reason, why that feature is not offered.

  16. Comment box

    When I hover over (or rollover) existing comment boxes they do not appear. (Yes, it is turned on under preferences.) I can't edit them either, as that would at least be a way to see them.

    I can add new comment boxes, that appear to have changed? I have to "submit" them?

    Please.....just put them back to the way they used to be. If that can't be done, why can't I view old comments? That is a must!

    Using Excel 2016 for Mac, Version 16.18. Using Office 365. I believe this latest update was yesterday. I was having this problem…

  18. keep the copy

    Disable "Keep the Copy": Provide users a way to disable the new "keep the copy" functionality that was recently included. Having to hit the 'ESC' key is an extraneous step and very frustrating.

  20. Autosave UI is HORRENDOUS

    Right now you have an "autosave" toggle on the Excel header. But this is set to "off" and is not able to be toggled on, unless you are working with a file on one drive. How presumptuous of MSFT - you put a control on the interface with no way to address it. And, your support is clueless (initially) as to why this is usable. Because they have all been trained to think that everyone uses everything you create all the time.

    Or organization, like so many others, relies on Dropbox. I also use iCloud. And Box. And OneDrive. But…
