  4. Sticky Note under Info screen of 'File'

    …to replace the comments section which is too small and not all that functional.

    Disclaimer: I often digress in utter excitement, bear with me.

    This section could include notes to oneself when drafting, editing, or sharing documents in school or at work. It transcends the type of program being used. I am a Food Scientist analyzing cook time and initial moisture over various time periods and weather patterns by use of Pivot Tables. I’ve made some great progress on my spreadsheet, but now that I’m winding down at home for the night, I’d like to jot down a few final…

  6. equation of linear trendline on ipad

    On a PC, I can make an XY scatterplot, and get a trendline, and get the equation and R squared value. But on an ipad, I cannot get the equation of the line. I have a lab exercise with my college students that requires them to make a scatterplot, and then use the equation of the line to predict Y values given an X value, or vice versa. Our college just purchased new ipads for all students, so I was very disappointed they cannot use their new ipads for this exercise.

  7. Can I use a Tablet & Stylus to enter numbers in Excel cell ?

    i fill in numbers on reports printed from Excel spreadsheets. I want to stop using a clipboard with printed paper, and use a tablet (Surface Pro?) and a Stylus to write the numbers (Data) in the cell.
    I've been reading forums and scanning YouTube and I can't find an answer to a Very Simple question:
    Is today's Hardware, and software advanced enough to let me write numbers on the tablet, and have it converted to digital type?
    this would help speed up the job i do, make it more efficient to not turn in my chicken scratch, only to have…

  9. 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.

  11. Add ability to use custom "User-Made" template in Excel

    Add support for CUSTOM TEMPLATES in mobile version of excel. Another question asking the same thing was posted, but apparently Microsoft can't read as they just added the ability to use templates, but not CUSTOM USER-MADE TEMPLATES! Quit handicapping your mobile apps. It's bad enough form controls and VBA aren't supported still. At least make a useable option that is mobile friendly.

  13. Locked rows and columns in iPad don't works with Apple Pen

    When I lock a row or a column in Excel, I can´t use my Apple Pen. If the sheet has a lot of rows and columns it will be impossible to know which is the right cell to write in.
    I don't want to unlock these rows and columns, and to write with the keyboard is not an option. It covers the whole sheet.(sorry for my english)

  17. interacting with embedded files/ insert or use audio file on mobile

    when audio file is inserted as an object using Excel Desktop, it can not be opened or played on mobile devices.

  18. Paste Plain Text On Iphone

    I want to copy the data from MULTIPLE cells in Excel on an iphone and paste the data elsewhere. This data is TEXT. It needs to remain TEXT.
    I do not want to:

    •copy an image file of the selected cells

    •copy data from one cell at a time

    •export this file to another spreadsheet app that easily performs this simple task (because such exporting has been, apparently, cleverly forbidden)

    •retype the data from these cells into another spreadsheet app that easily performs this simple task (because there are tens of thousands of them.)

  19. Don’t automatically open last document

    Whenever I open Excel it automatically tries to download and open my last document. This actually takes significant time and slows the opening of Excel, especially when I don’t want to use that last document. Perhaps a simple switch in settings to control this behavior? I would prefer that Excel just opens to the file list.
