  3. Show that you listen

    MICROSOFT should periodically publish a summary of significant changes it makes as a result of user input. It would help to demonstrate you actually use this input rather than just giving people a place to vent.

  4. Request of revival of gradient color feature on cells

    I'd like to use Excel as sketch of the knitting diagram of Hawaiian codes.
    Then, I could express silver colors at Excel ver. before 2016, but now I cannot.
    I cannot make difference between silver color and gray color.

    To express such shiny color; silver, gold, I hope that the feature will be availeble again.

  5. wrong font size in Excel vs Word

    By default, Excel seems to use Calibri 11.
    However, the font in Excel always look too small comparing side-by-side between Excel and Word at the same magnification "100%".

    I wonder what might be the problem here? Has anyone notice the same problem?

  8. opentype

    Enable the "features" of an OpenType font. Especially the "Number Spacing" feature is really important to line up in tabular form

  10. 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…

  12. Add option to disable recent fonts

    It would be a great idea if there were a way to disable recent fonts.

    The recent font list can get clogged up very quickly when testing which font to use.

  13. PLEASE add the page & cell reference of a formula when alerting the user to an issue when the spreadsheet is opened

    I open one particular spreadsheet and a warning comes up that there is a circular calculation but it doesn't tell me where and I can't find it.

    I think it would be a good idea to add the page & cell reference to assist the user find the problem

  17. Money in Excel needs whole transaction detail string

    MiE is pulling truncated transaction details (transaction memo field). This makes things unnecessarily difficult. Would like to see MiE pull in the entire string from bank's memo field, rather than a truncated version of it. I link to the same bank from QBO, mint and now MiE, but MiE is the only one that is cutting off the tx detail field.

  19. Click sheet to add same cell in different sheets to a formula

    Excel 2011 had the possibility to sum the same relative cell in different sheets by typing "=", and then clicking on a cell in one sheet and then just clicking the next sheet and it would add the same cell in that sheet to the formula. This functionality is no longer available in Excel 2016.

    I would have thought that this functionality would have been included when Microsoft added the Preference "Enable Click To Add Mode) in May 2020 (v16.37 or higher). See https://excel.uservoice.com/forums/304933-excel-for-mac/suggestions/9603774-just-click-individual-cells-to-sum?tracking_code=5c6fb0a2180ea3d9572d151bf21fefc0
    but they didn't.

    Please add this functionality when turning on "Enable Click To Add Mode.

    Thank…
