  1. Add Find All to Excel for Mac

    There is currently no 'Find All" function in excel for Mac. This pretty severely limits how easy it is to navigate large workbooks. I used this function quite a bit when I was on a PC and would love to see it added in.

  2. Allow us the option of opening excel directly into a blank workbook. Used to be able to change this in previous versions?

    Rather than make us click twice to get into a blank workbook (first the template page, then we have to click on blank workbook), we used to have the option of opening excel directly into a new blank workbook, which is what I need 100% of the time. Please bring it back.

    I Purchased Office 2019 (one time purchase) on 24 Jan 2019

    Having Problems so for now have gone back to Office 2011 Default Excel AND VERY WORRIED THAT NEXT MACOS WILL NOT SUPPORT THAT OLD OFFICE VERSION:

    Excel in Microsoft Office 2019 is slow to open - two minutes versus 8 seconds in Office 2011 if opening a saved workbook on my Mac book pro MacOS Mojave 10.14.2 by double clicking workbook file icon. Workaround seems to be opening Excel first from which the file is opened but that still takes…

  9. Refresh sheet button display

    Frequently, on opening the workbook or after copying the sheet, buttons in the sheet are not displayed properly (or at all) without a specific zooming/dezomming which seems to refresh the screen. Problem happening on Mojave with Excel 16.24. Thanks

  11. Bring back Relative References in Macro Recording

    Bring back Relative References in Macro Recording - the fact the MS has asked me for a thumbs up or down having brought this back with 16.24 amazes me. I and others have been asking for this for OVER TWO YEARS. .... NO! MS you don't get a thumbs up.

  12. small descriptive text windows for command or control tips

    Is there a way to activate a feature for small windows that display descriptive text when we rest the pointer on a command or control? this will be more efficient for Mac users as newbies to Excel

    this feature is apparently available in Windows, but not Mac?

    it will be more efficient, please advise

  14. Add a "Save All" option while Excel is open.

    This option exists when closing Excel. But, when working on several files at once, I would like to be able to "Save All" without manually clicking through and saving every file individually.

  15. In Excel for

    In Excel Windows I can choose between dot (.) or comma (,) as decimal separator in Options/ Advanced/ Editing options. Since comma is used in most European countries and dot in the U.S. and many other coutries this causes a lot of problems and sometimes accidents when Excel files from other countries are used. Please introduce the same option in Excel/ Mac/ Preferences – or even better - as a choice for each file. Now I have to replace all dots with commas or vice versa with the risk of involuntarily changing dots that should be dots. And I know…

  16. Blinking briefly or highlighting matching/ pared parentheses when checking through or writing a formula in the formula bar for Mac

    Blinking briefly or highlighting matching/ pared parentheses when checking through or writing a formula in the formula bar for Mac. Like it does on windows.

  17. useful minor suggestions

    Just moved from Excel 2011. to version 16.24

    1 there should be more space in the chart select data window so it is not necessary to scroll to change details
    2 any way to avoid the auto insertion of "." after inserting 2 spaces very annoying ??
    3 formatting from the home tab should work universally and not be greyed out for certain actions on charts
    4 the last format used should be remembered for reuse
    5 the home copy format button should work for charts.

    Hope you find theses ideas useful and can implement them in coming versions

  19. solver multiple range

    Using Solver, you cannot select multiple ranges in the "By changing variable cells box. If you select a range, type "," and select another range, the first range is overwritten rather than appended as in the Windows version of Excel.

    Version 16.12
