  1. Need to be able lock/unlock a sheet or workbook on my iPad. This is a serious limitation. Please fix.

    Not be able to protect/unprotected a sheet on my iPad is a serious limitation for me. It defeats the purpose of having multiple devices.

      • Completely Maximize Excel Android Window

        I use Excel Android as a scoreboard on my Samsung E Tablet.

        Is there a way to completely maximize the sheet, so that even the green ribbon on top is not visible? Thank you very much.

        • Allow Excel for iPad to use the Signature Line feature available in Excel for Windows.

          International Seafoods of Alaska uses Excel files on iPads to fill out and submit quality control worksheets for at its seafood processing facility and needs to have the QC Inspectors and QC Supervisors sign the Excel worksheet forms we've created in Excel for Windows. We've tested inserting a pair of Signature Lines for these signatures, but in Excel for iPad, the signature line added in Excel for Windows is visible, but does not respond. Please make Excel for iPad enable the use of the Signature Lines, so we can use our Apple Pencils to sign Excel worksheets before submitting them.

          • Fix the numeric keyboard for iPhone X

            There is a small bug in the numeric keyboard in iOS. In iPhone X the keyboard is too close to the bottom of the screen. Almost 9 out of 10 times when I use it Excel is sent to the background by the bar in the middle. See the picture.

            • Increase functionality in iPad app

              Many of us don't use a laptop, but only use iPad for our excel and other office 365 products. I want to be able to customize my ribbons, change my theme colors, develop macros. I want to do all the things that I used to be able to do when my macbook was working! I am paying just the same as everyone else and it's very frustrating to want to do something that I used to be able to do, and my hands are tied!!! Furthermore, I don't even know what I am not able to do on iPad excel…

                • disable auto-download missing fonts in cellular please

                  This download makes a huge data cost and has little use, because you can always show the fonts' names in the "Start". So please make an option to DISABLE this feature while the iphone is in mobile network.

                  • hold down command key for keyboard shortcuts

                    I would like that, as in native iOS apps such as Safari, holding down the Command key for a few seconds displays a cheat sheet of keyboard shortcuts available in Excel.

                    • Extend the Free Office App to include the new 10.5" iPad Pro

                      Apple has just released the new iPad Pro 2, and the smaller version has increased in size from 9.7" to 10.5". This puts the smaller iPad Pro into the size that requires an Office 365 subscription. Since it is still the "smaller" version of the Pro, it would be nice it it was still eligible for the free versions.

                              The excel application does not open the books on the ipad, it writes "old graphic SmartArt". Previously, these books were opened and edited on the same iPad. How to open them ?!
                              Thank you.

                                  • Don't let editing a file on iOS change the window size when file opened in OS X

                                    It is frustrating to edit a file on OS X (office 2016) then edit it later on an iPhone, and then when you get back to your desk and edit on OS X, the window has been resized to a tiny iPhone screen, forcing you to resize it on the desktop.

                                    I know the iPhone and iPad can see a smaller area, but don't save the "window size" with the file when it is saved on iOS. The window size from the desktop should be persistent.
