  3. Formatting and Copy/Paste

    Current formatting ability is really like kids play. If not a full desktop formatting function, at least half of it?


    1. Table formatting with more details.

    2. Shadow customisation.

    3. More text formatting, including offset from cell edge etc.

    4. Improve border application UI. It’s not really intuitive.

    5. Picture editing (i.e. remove background, compress size, shadow options/customisation etc.).

    6. Paste options to be more like desktop.

    Tablets are now very powerful in terms of hardware and more often than not, better than average laptop. It may not be computational power (I’m no chip designer/expert), I don’t think any other functions are a limitation by the…

  5. Conditional Formatting Based on User

    If there is a way to set conditional formatting to format cells based on which user made the update, that would be great.

  6. Fill effects in notes are not displaying on iPad as they do in the desktop version of Excel.

    In excel desktop I will at a note to cells and within the note I use fill effects to add an image. This way when you hover over the comment, it will display the image.

    Currenly on iPad it will show that a note/comment is there but it is blank instead of showing the image. I think it should act like the desktop version and display the image if the comment is clicked.

  9. Excel loosing word wrap and outline formatting when mobile excel is used

    We have multiple people editing an excel spreadsheet from mobile and full excel. We have discovered on several occasions that excel looses its word wrap and cell outline formatting when the mobile app is opened. Even if a user doesn’t make any edits, we have seen cells loose these formats.

    Please help as we are trying to move away from google sheets and getting pushed hard to move back with these issues.

  11. Add “Engineering” display format. (e.g. 1.234E5 —> 123.4E3)

    Many scientific calculators can display value in above format.
    If Excel implements this format, I don’t have to use a calculator

    There should be an option to not display a value in a cell if it is zero to reduce clutter

  14. Ability to select or unselect certain features

    For example, when typing a list in a cell i often find myself trying to start each line with a dash like this
    -one thing
    -another thing
    -ect.
    However, when i do this it tries to do the function of combining it with another cell, which is very annoying. To have to choice to choose what i want it to do (in the settings) would be nice.
    I would also like the option of choosing what Enter does. I would prefer it to make a new line in the cell i am currently in, rather than moving on to the…

  15. WYSWYG fonts

    When you have an app capable to install new fonts on iPad, will be great that the fonts you see are the same as the fonts you print (WYSWYG - what you see is what you get). In previous versions, this was possible. Would it be possible to fix and let Excel print all the installed fonts available?

  17. Add custom date format

    The only existing date format including the Day of Week show a the full day name e.g. Wednesday. This takes excessive space in your spreadsheet column. I would like to see the ability to have a custom format so we can use the short for e.g. Wed. So basically a format such as "Ddd dd-Mmm-yyyy". This option already exists in the Windows version.

  18. Please include Wrap text for cells

    Wrap for cells would be really useful. It used to be present but seems to have disappeared.

  20. We use office 365 on iPad Pro and cannot copy and paste a formatted table from excel into outlook. It only copies the text?!

    In office 365 on and iPad we cannot copy and paste a formatted table ie colours lines etc into outlook!
    It will only copy the words and un-formatted, we should be able to copy and paste the formatted table straight into outlook. Ive spoken to Apple and Microsoft support and they provided me a work around to screenshot or attach the whole work sheet ?! Surely we should be able to directly copy and paste the table.
