  1. Improved Support For XLSM files

    When I open an XLSM file in Excel for iOS and save it, it disables my macros and removes my Quick Access Toolbar icons in the file in Windows. It would be great if it saves the state of the macros and the icons in the QA Toolbar, so when I open it again in Windows, i don't have to re-enable macros and re-add all the QA Toolbar icons I added for this particular file.

      • Make Excel UI more like Numbers UI: more touch friendly

        Excel feels too much like a Windows port with a few touch-friendly additions. Compare this to Numbers, which feels like a first-class citizen on iOS.

        Two examples:
        1. Showing which cells are in a formula
        - in Numbers, if you tap a cell with a formula, it always shows immediately in colors which cells are in the formula. The keyboard does not pop up yet until you exit the cell
        - in Excel, to see which cells are in a formula, you need to double tap to edit it. The virtual keyboard pops up obscuring half the screen and often…

        • Hardware keyboard scroll buttons

          If you have a hardware keyboard connected, Excel needs keyboard shortcuts to quickly move up or down a number of rows or left or right a number of columns.

          • Hyperlinks Within a Workbook Should Go Directly to the Cell

            Currently, all hyperlinks require the user to click the cell and then click again to navigate the hyperlink. This makes sense when the hyperlink is to a webpage as you don't want the user being taken somewhere they don't want to go.

            However, if the hyperlink is simply to a cell or worksheet within the same workbook, then the user should be taken there directly without having to confirm the jump. This would make navigating with the Excel iPad app a lot easier.
