  1. Lock cells and activate links

    When I lock cells, the links I have assigned to the cells no longer work.I have to leave the cell unlocked so the links work. This is another feature that does not make sense. Why bother locking links. Could you please make it so locking allows for links to work as well?

    • Lock cells by allow computed values

      I have EXCEL sheets with lock and unlock cells so my users can only edit where they are supposed to. However, I have cells that are calculated and I want then locked as well. It appears that lock calculated cells NO LONGER compute. I need to leave them unlocked and therefore vulnerable to users to mess with it. Why does locking need to affect calculated fields?

      • Add more options for diagramms

        Could you please add more editing options to charts and dieagrams on excel mobile. I miss so much editing stuff which I can use on a normal version. For example, it is not possible to change the beginning of an axes, it starts at 0, always. Also the option "reverse order" is missing. And so on so on.

        With this functions, Excel is to highly priced with arround 10 euros per month.

        Please get the mobile version next to the desktop version. Otherwise "Numbers" will overtook you on apple mobile devices on a long term.

                    • 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.

                      • 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…

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                            • Enable form controls

                              Enabling form controls would allow iOS users to use buttons to enter information with a touch rather than having to type entries.

                              I'm imagining the power of being able to use the increment buttons, or radio toggles to collect data to quickly.

                              Even better would be coming up with cell formats that would accept that sort of input directly, without having to setup up the form controls. Imagine a checkbox format, or a counter format with Increment buttons.

                              • Expand Drop-down Lists to Show Full Text on iPad App.

                                Drop-down lists on iPad version of Excel are shown in a fixed size area. If text for each selection is larger than that area, string is cut off with three dots in the end. It would be better to have a drop-down with flexible size so that all text can be seen for each element in list.

                                    Wish there was floating button to bring up keyboard on excel like numbers on iPad.

                                    • 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)
