  1. Return the Data Entry Form, Please

    Not a new idea, just return the Data Entry Form. I feel Excel has put itself back in the prehistoric era, maybe just a few seconds after the Big Bang, by removing the Data Entry Form capability. Why did MS remove it? It was around for decades, great feature.

  4. money in excel

    Money in Excel Manual Accounts

    I have a couple accounts that I use that aren't currently supported by Plaid, specially T-Mobile Money, Apple Card, and cash (yes, paper money!). Adding manual accounts and transactions would be a nice interim solution while waiting for support for these accounts.

  5. RE: Blank pages are unexpectedly

    it's long been an issue where you go to print something from excel and the print preview shows blank. I've noticed that if I select multiple pages it still shows as one page attempting to print (i.e. I cannot scroll through the sheets at preview).

    This indicates that there is an issue with the system print function within Excel.

    I have been able to reestablish this connection by opening a different file (than the one that "prints blank") and going to the print function on that document. It generally works so I follow through by either printing or making a…

  9. When quitting Excel, Word, or PowerPoint, and then reopening them (or restarting my Mac), none of them will reopen the previously open docum

    When quitting Excel, Word, or PowerPoint, and then reopening them (or restarting my Mac), none of them will reopen the previously open documents. Unchecking the option Close windows when quitting app in the General tab of Mac System Preferences, the Office 2019 for Mac doesn’t reopen the files that are previously opened either. This was never a problem before, but this new feature seriously interrupts my work flow. Please restore the functionality that made it possible for documents to automatically reopen upon restart. I hate trying to remember what I was working on and dig through stored files to reopen…

  10. "Paste Number Formats only" in Paste Special Submenu

    This is totally missing! You can Paste VALUES with Number Formats, or FORMULAS with Number Formats, or ALL Formats including borders, backgrounds and foreground colours, but you CANNOT Paste Number Formats ONLY! Most of my wasted time in Excel is from this tedious task! There should definitely be an option for "Number Formats Only" in the Paste Special Submenu, if not a "Number Format Painter" as well!

  14. Need to be able to step through formulas and functions in Excel.

    It would be nice for the mac version to have the same features as the windows version. Especially when I have to switch between OSes.

  20. 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.
