  2. Ability to choose specific data points to create partial trendline

    I want to be able to create a trendline more freely, where I can choose which data points in my series I want to include in the trendline. The easiest way would be to mark the points by ctrl or cmd and choose wanted data points and then create a trendline.

  6. Excel for Mac v16.45 - Can't Create Charts in Certain Workbooks

    Hi,

    I am working on a workbook that I've had for years, but for some reason I am unable to make charts all of a sudden in that workbook, but I can create charts when I copy the data to a new workbook.

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Why is that?

  7. Secondary axis charts

    Make the secondary axis work the same on Mac as it does on PC. It is a right pain to get a secondary axis onto a graph in Mac.

  12. Option to add a Title to a Chart Legend

    To improve comprehension of chart data, it is sometimes very helpful to explain what each data series represents. E.g. if the series names say "orange", "apples", and "bananas" the legend could say Fruit [lbs].
    While this information could be added in the chart title, it can make that title too long.

  13. Adding an extra vertical axis for Mac in graphs in Excel.

    I've been working on a school assignment where we need to show the correlation between 2 sets of data but the range of them both is far apart. On the support page I saw the function only works in Word. Why?

    My suggestion is that this function in also added to Excel.

  15. XML mapping ability

    I do a lot of XML mapping (import XML data to Excel, Export XML format) and every time I have to do this, I need to go Windows machine, which, for those who doesn't know, is a terrible experience by itself. There is a reason I love Mac. Please make Mac the only computer that I'd be using for any need.
    Thanks,

  16. Vertical axis and Data Label options for a Chart

    Currently, Selecting the Vertical axis (Primary or Secondary) and Data Label options are not available while Selecting Data for a chart. This creates innumerable problems while charting, especially using large data sets. This is leading to non-display of charts if Data set is more than 1000 in numbers.

    Preferably, an option should be available also to Turn-Off all Data Labels by default.

  17. Please include "Cell Values" as a Data Label Option

    In many versions of Excel, you can add data labels that correspond with a specific cell value.This is particularly useful in a scatterplot or bubble chart. Please add this feature to Excel for Mac.

  18. Allow for easy deletion of individual bars from bar charts

    In my current version of Excel, there is an option for easily removing a series from a line chart. However, there is no easy way to remove a single bar from a bar chart.

    Sometimes I need to break up existing bar charts into multiple sub-charts, but the only way to do this involves duplicating and changing the chart data range. I then have to go and change the colors of the bars one by one and manually reassign error bar sources.

    If there were a way to individually delete bars from a bar chart in a way that preserved…

  19. Excel on windows you RC chart and it shows which type. I am a teacher and wish to do same thing on Mac I have 16.16.26 version

    Make it easy for teachers to check type of graph a student has used. It is very easy on Windows. Mac should be just as easy.

  20. Fix the Waterfall chart to include display units like thousands

    In all the charts I've looked which is most you can format the axis to change the way the units are displayed like in hundreds, thousands, millions...
    The Waterfall chart doesn't allow for this. The format axis dialog box to the right doesn't have this choice. Please see the attached file.
