  2. Lagginess on Excel

    I use Excel to take Script notes and post Screen Grabs for Films and Commercials.... when I scroll down the pages it is very laggy and also the more screen grabs (that are small) that I put on my document, the more laggy the document gets and setting print area may give me the spinning ball of death unless I quit excel....HELP!!!

  5. Ability to choose specific data points to create partial trendline

    I want to be able to create a trendline more freely, where I can choose which data points in my series I want to include in the trendline. The easiest way would be to mark the points by ctrl or cmd and choose wanted data points and then create a trendline.

  10. Use spacebar to check/uncheck checkboxes in pivot tables

    It would be really useful to be able to check/uncheck checkboxes in pivot tables without having to rely on the mouse i.e. using the spacebar

  11. Search result highlight

    Please properly highlight the cell that contains the searched result. Show it with a different color or blinking border or something. Now it is very difficult to locate the cell containing searched result if there is a lot of content in the worksheet. Thanks.

  15. lock grid lines.

    just like you can freeze panes, i cant seem to simply press a button to freeze my grid lines that i have designed. i have a bunch of custom cell styles, but when i insert or remove them they change my grid lines or delete them. very annoying. and why cant the layout just be the same as windows version. when ever i ask someone to help with excell they are normally of course windows based so just have no idea where things are.

  16. Excel for Mac change defaul CSV import separator

    Every time I open a CSV file on my Mac I need to reformat the file as the default separator is a TAB. I suggest including a setting to change the default CSV separator configuration.

  17. Excel for Mac - Find and Replace - No Formatting Option

    "Find-and-replace with formatting in Excel for Mac (for example, change the text color or highlight certain words throughout a lengthy document). What I have found, however, is that apparently Excel for Mac doesn't provide this option. How is this possible? It's such a basic, fundamental function. The PC version of Excel lets you do this (of course)."

  18. Power Pivot function on PC must ALSO be usable feature on Mac

    Seems a rip-off that Mac users must pay the same price for MS Office only to be short-changed on the utility of the program. Mostly use Excel and Outlook. The latter is generally okay, but Excel lacks.


    1. Control keys do not navigate properly on the Mac and/or display does not move properly, especially large files; and germain to this thread,


    2. Building pivot tables on the Mac is an absolute pain in the ... while very simple on a PC. Learned (from MS support) that this is a feature called "Power Pivot" that simply is not available on the Mac. Makes…
