  1. Cell Tab

    Enable the tab and enter keys to go to next unlocked cell, currently it will go to next cell even if locked for editing and show a warning.

  2. Please fix: Virtual keyboard covers cells that is edited

    If you use the Freeze Panes function to freeze the first 10 rows (on an iPad Mini screen) and tap to edit a cell in one of the rows below the frozen rows, the virtual keyboard comes up, but it will cover the cell that you wanted to edit. Worse, there is no way to scroll up or down, because the only cells that are visible are frozen! So the only way is to unfreeze the worksheet before editing and then freeze again. Please fix this!

    One option would be that the entire worksheet moves up to show the cell…

  4. 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

    Even…

  6. 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?

  7. 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

  9. IPad Pro users have to get a paid subscription of all Office applications if they want to edit the documents. Why then not allow it?

    All iPad Pro users pay an Office 365 subscription fee to be able to edit documents. I feel that the limitations earlier sen on the free office products should be removed as such from the Office 365 products.

  12. 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?

  13. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. Merge Across option.

    Please provide the "Merge Across" option under edits on our iPads because it doesn't even exist. It exists in Windows PC, but some how this option is not available in our iPads. Basically the Merge Across option lets you merge two or more tabs across.
