        • Add option to change picture

          The desktop version of excel has the option to change a picture to a different picture when you right click on it. This could be added along side the copy, cut, and delete options when you click a picture in the mobile application.

          • Allow elements to be placed between grid lines

            Sometimes it is useful to be able to place an element (character, bullet point, etc) “between” the grid lines. As a proof of concept, I've attached a mockup with the letter ‘ы’ inserted between two horizontally adjacent cells.

            I expect this addition to the Excel worksheet model to be fundamental enough that it will doubtlessly be useful for many novel applications, even though at the moment I can't think of any.

            Thanks!

              • Copy paste. Function on ipad

                When I copy cells from one spreadsheet on iPad and paste those cells to another spreadsheet on the same iPad the pasted information is not copies correctly. The first screenshot attached I have copied cells H8 through H18. The second screenshot shows that information pasted to column DJ 6.. as you see the paste function has collapsed the cells with information and eliminated the cells that contained no information from the copied spreadsheet. HELP PLEASE. THANKS

                • Hiding Authors in comments.

                  Because of the nature of my work I want to hide my name in comments. It can’t be that hard to go into Settings, for example, and give the option to delete it. I’m sure that a lot of people share my view.

                  Thanks.

                  • Enabling copying sheets from one one workbook to another with proper functionality

                    At the moment when you copy paste a sheet from workbook to another all the formuale are lost.

                    This is a big weekness compared to working within a windows environment. It effectively means that workbooks cannot be combined.

                    For example, if I have a standardised financial analysis worksheet that I want to add to a work book containing a financial model I would have to re-create the formulae each time.

                      • Touch Keyboard bug on IPad Pro 10.5 with excel

                        The new iPad Pro uses a slightly larger keyboard and I’ve noticed that there is a bug when you swap from ABC to 123 on the keyboard (the abc...123 google button on the bottom right)

                        If you tap on it, it will change your keyboard to a more numeric centric one.

                        However, the ABC...123 button from that point is now hidden by the keyboard itself; this is because the program appears to code to have that frame follow the keyboard if the user moves the touch keyboard.

                        Since the IPad Pro has a larger keyboard than most IOS devices, the…

                        • Keyboard Shortcut to Edit Active Cell (like F2)

                          Excel for iPad needs a hardware keyboard shortcut to "Edit the active cell and put the insertion point at the end of its contents." This is the F2 function in Excel for PC. This shortcut is very important for people who rely on the arrow keys to navigate spreadsheets.

                            • Permit use of Draw for marking up and adding numbers, text,etc when using "Freeze Pane" for Headers. Was functional before latest update.

                              Allow use of "Draw" functions at the same time using "Freeze Pane" functions. This was possible before the 4/13/2017 update.

                              • Slider or Scroll Bar via Data Validation

                                I would like to see a slider or scroll bar become an in-cell data validation option (just as I'd like to see a date picker for dates and a new checkbox option).

                                This feature could be integrated into the "Whole number" validation criteria with a simple checkbox like "Show scroll bar".

                                When you double-click or double-tap the cell to edit the value, the scrollbar could appear immediately below or above the cell, as shown in the attached image. (For this image, I used a form field scroll bar, but I think it gets the point across).

                                I'd like to see…

                                • increase width of dropdown lists

                                  As is use data validation to create drowdown lists i am in need of a higher width of those lists using excel iOs App.

                                  The entries are very long so that i can only see the beginning. The decision which entry should be taken must be made at the end.

                                  I would like to increase the width of a dropdown list manually. Please improve this asap.

                                  Many thanks in Advance.

                                  • issues pasting into excel for iOS

                                    When pasting into excel, it adds a blank row as a header and a footer

                                    How it happens:
                                    I select a row of cells in Numbers (2 or more cells)
                                    I copy those cells
                                    I go to paste the cells into Excel
                                    The cells get pasted into a row below the one I have selected, and have a header and foot added to them of blank cells

                                    I am able to get around the issue by pasting from Numbers into an Excel file using a different app "OfficeSuite", so I don't believe the issue is to do with Numbers

                                    • Add scroll bars on excel and word to navigate large sheets and documents

                                      I work with large database files from counties, which Excel handles easily. The problem is getting around on these large sheets of 200 columns by 30,000 rows. Swiping makes it impossible to effectively view or edit these files. I am amazed that Excel accepts these files without a problem, but I need scroll bars to access different parts of the sheet. Even lowly PDF readers have these!

                                      The same problem exists formlarge Word documents.

                                        • Virtual trackpad does not work well

                                          When you in a text box in Excel with the on-screen keyboard and iOS 9+, you should be able to use the virtual trackpad to move the cursor around the text box (pressing and holding the keyboard with two fingers). This works well in all iOS first-party apps and MS Word.

                                          However in Excel there are three problems:
                                          - once you double tap a text box to edit the text box and press the keyboard with two fingers, the cursor jumps to another place. This should not happen.
                                          - you cannot move the cursor vertically, the cursor stays on the…
