  2. Fix this Bug

    Bug in Excel for Mac ver 16.49 (21050901). When making a scatter diagram (X-Y plot), the app drops out of X-Y mode, and into line chart mode when the first blank data point is encountered. the work around is to hide the blank/missing data points.

  3. 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.

  4. darkmode in the excel cells for mac

    The title says it all. It should already exist a dark mode that allows the cells to turn dark as well, not only the editing options.

    Ps: forcing me to opt-in of something just to post it... when you explicitly say that I can opt-out is a bad bad UX practice

  5. STOCKHISTORY function should return split and dividend adjusted prices

    STOCKHISTORY function should return split and dividend ADJUSTED prices. It is otherwise useless for historical prices and calculations such as historical volatility.

  6. Grouping

    When grouping rows or columns, it would be nice if the +/- sign (to un-/hide them) would be at the beginning and not at the end of the selected rows (columns)

  7. Add the AA notation for number format ie aa ab ac ad ae number for format

    The “aa” notation
    A better solution is the combination of the two: single letter notation up until (but not including) quadrillion and a two letter representation of scientific notation after trillion. It may sound confusing, but you’ll agree that it’s actually rather clear when you see it in action:

    Number Written Scientific Single letter “aa”
    1 one 1 1 1
    1.000 one thousand 1×103 1k 1k
    1.000.000 one million 1×106 1m 1m
    1.000.000.000 one billion 1×109 1b 1b
    1.000.000.000.000 one trillion 1×1012 1t 1t
    1.000.000.000.000.000 one quadrillion 1×1015 1q 1aa
    1.000.000.000.000.000.000 one quintillion 1×1018 1? 1ab
    So, one quadrillion (1015)…

  8. Online security is as important as any other security

    The Internet is surging with digital threats. Every other device is under attack either by some cybercriminal or malicious software. It is high time that we must install McAfee Antivirus software to protect our devices and data from web-based threats. McAfee offers a number of advanced versions that you can select from. Once you choose the compatible product, visit the site mcafee.com/activate to activate the purchased product.

  9. Use Python for the scripting language instead of inventing a new one

    Python seems to be the universal choice for scripting languages these days, except Microsoft. I think more people would use Office products if they already knew how to program them. Please don't develop your own language. It's a waste of your time and mine.

  10. Stacking Tabs

    Usability: I need 23 different sheets/categories to track my finances. This results in 23 tabs, which overflow outside the window and which makes it cumbersome to switch between sheets. A BETTER solution would be to allow the tabs to be stacked into 2 horizontal rows - one on top of the other. Then instead of many mouse clicks, just one! Great.

  11. Fix VBE

    Many issues with VBE including...

    When adding part of a line of code in the editor such as select case<space> and then I pause to think auto syntax checking seems to run (even if its turned off in preferences and irrespective of whether I'm in design mode)
    The result is that the line turns red and the space is removed. The consequence is that as I type the next part of the statement the space is removed and I end up with a syntax error.
    This issue is irrespective of where I save the document (OneDrive, iCloud or local to…

  12. Is there a way to truncate a column of cells in Excel ?

    In Google Sheets, there is a nice function to format a column so that the words don't bleed over to the next column if there are blanks in the next column. It is part of a user-friendly icon menu that allows the user to: wrap text, truncate text or continue text to next column.

  16. 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…

  17. Make it possible to lock a spreadsheet page on an Excel file in Excel for Mac.

    I have Excel file page set at 130%, for example, it is easy to expand or contract the size with a wrong move on the MacBook control pad. Make it possible to freeze a page size in an Excel file. Resetting is a pain.
