  1. Many Shortcuts are not available in the Mac version

    Like Excel in the Windows version, many shortcuts are not available in the Mac version.

    MAC version should be more user friendly.

  2. Should be full screen when double click to title bar same as previous version

    As my title, previous version, when I double click to title bar, the window will be increased full screen. Now, it's no more, I have to drag the corner to increase the window.

  6. Since last update October 2020, problem is huge log files created by Excel

    Each time we use Excel (full version installed), it generates growing log files. If working on a 300 mg Excel file, the log file can be as huge as 18Gigs !!!! Started, for me, 16OCT2020. Thanks for having a look into this..

  11. scroll and drag

    Hi, I am using a MacBook with a touch pad and cannot simultaneously drag data and scroll around my document. If I need to drag something beyond my screen of view, I need to hold the data over the border of the file screen, which isn't terribly wide, and my data goes into some other, non-passable format if I drag it out too far. Definitely making for some slow progress.

    Is there a setting I can change, or have it fixed?

  12. Freezing time every 10 seconds

    On mac OS Catalina, since the last update of Excel, I got ,on many on my files , freezing time almost every 10 seconds that last for 5 seconds or so. Just by moving within the cells.

    The CPU is way far from being overloaded.

    The customer service via remote experienced the problem and tried to reinstall office and told me that it happened with complex files with a lot of formatting.

    It's not acceptable to get that answer and have Excel almost unusable from one update to another.

    Please make this app reliable as it should be.

    Regards,
    Guillaume

  14. Reduce internet connection use.

    There should not be such a need for a constant internet connection with all Office apps. There are times when I cannot even cut and paste text without waiting for Excel to contact the server. That's just stupid. And no, I don't need to switch my whole computer to "Airplane Mode" as some one marked a similar suggestion as closed because. Nothing but Microsoft and Esri require constant connections. Everything else works fine without a great connection. No app should have to contact a server to cut and paste. This issue also causes problems with file versions on OneDrive, especially…

  15. gran lentitud para abrir los programas

    Cada vez que quiero abrir un programa de Microsoft, me hace mas lenta mi computadora, además en ocaciones se tarda hasta 10 minutos en abrir un exel, word o cualquier otro. No se que hacer, decidí suscribirme para no tener ningún tipo de problemas y la verdad me ha resultado muy frustrante, porque en ocasiones hasta me has congelado la computadora . Gracias.

  17. Send to Mail Recipient

    I cannot find 'Send to Mail Recipient' in Excel for Mac. Why?

    In fact, why are so many commands that are available in Excel for windows not available in Excel for Mac?

    I am paying the same price, so should get the same functions! MS, should either get the Mac version to operate the same functions as windows, or offer a 50% discount for the 50% usability of the Mac version!

  18. Touch Mode

    Please create a more user friendly experience with touch mode. It is difficult to select multiple cells and drag formula ranges.

  19. Memory Overloading

    Tengo una macbook air mid 2013, corriendo con OS Catalina 10.15.6, 4GB de ram, cpu 1,3 GHz Intel Core i5 de dos núcleos, operaciones sencillas como aplicar formula "O" para encontrar valores en una matriz demandan 9GB de memoria ram, exigee al 187% la capacidad del CPU y tarda 1, 2 o mas horas en arrojar el resultado, luego copiar y pegar los valores de la columna toma 2 horas mas. cuando necesito trabajar en una hoja que mantenga varias formulas activas (sin copiar resultado y pegar solo los valores) resulta imposible trabajar.
