  1. 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.

  2. reinstate the scroll buttons - these had been added earlier on, and then they are removed recentely.

    Reinstate the scroll buttons - these had been added earlier on, and, strange enough, they are removed recently.

  9. App Freeze IOS

    The newest version release July 10, 2017 has major user issues.
    First I was experiencing saving errors at random times. The ipads have internet on them and I figure it was because it lost communication to server it gave a error message of conflicted copy of workbook and need to save copy to continue. That still is a issue.

    Second: Cant hide tabs in workbook after July 10, 2017 update. When I attempt to hide tabs within a workbook the app freezes for about a minute then closes down. Once I reopen the app then it opens but any data…

  11. Wireless Mouse support within IOS Office (as Citrix did with the X1 Mouse)

    Apples lacking native support for mice limits us with IOS Office.

    Please consider mouse support directly within IOS Office. Maybe a partnership with Citrix to add support for the X1 Mouse?

    (Link to show Citrix X1 Mouse) http://store.citrix.com/store/citrix/en_US/pd/ThemeID.28169600/productID.317779200)

  12. Excel is inaccessible for VoiceOver users after the April 11th update

    I am a VoiceOver user and usually use Excel for the desktop. Occasionally, I have to take my worksheets on the road and need to edit them. I went on a trip to New Orleans from February 12 to February 22. During my trip, I could navigate around my worksheets and edit the cells. After the April 11 update, I tried to take an excel spreadsheet on the road but couldn't navigate the spreadsheet or edit the cells. Proper regression testing would have caught this problem. Please fix it hopefully in the next update.
    Thanks so much.

  13. Really hope that you're not closing this (and Word/Powerpoint) for desktop users

    I really hope that you are not closing this down as it is really useful for small form-factor tablets where you don't need and don't want a full desktop experience (and don't want to "waste" a licence on it).

  14. Add barcode font 3 of 9 for mobile scanning

    I want to scan directly off the screen and use excel to generate barcodes lists. It would make a mobile excel more useful.

  15. Excel Version 16.0.8027.1007 I use this software on my tablet connected to a Bluetooth external swiss-french keyboard bluetooth "Logitech".

    I use this software on my tablet connected to a Bluetooth external swiss-french keyboard bluetooth "Logitech".

    With this version of "Excel", the "AltGr" is not recognised.

    As an example, on the Swiss keyboard layout, to get the "@" sign, we have to use "AltGr" + "2".

    (This problem does not occur with "MS-Word" for Android.

    I tried to reinstall "Excel" already.

  16. Bug issue. On Excel, when i have an external data connection via the web, for instance, on iPhone it is not in that yet. So the issue is why

    When i have an external data connection via the web, for instance, on iPhone it is not in that yet. So the issue is why does it disconnect the one on my PC, just because the iPhone version doesn't work yet? It should say (as it does) that the link is not going to work, but then not disconnect the link permanently, because then I have to re-insert it every time I use the PC version.

  18. Make it stop re-inserting rows

    You can improve Excel for Android by making it stop re-inserting rows after they've been deleted. This happens all the time and it creates an awful nuisance when trying to navigate a small spreadsheet.

  19. Virtual trackpad does not work well

    When you in a text box in Excel with the on-screen keyboard and iOS 9+, you should be able to use the virtual trackpad to move the cursor around the text box (pressing and holding the keyboard with two fingers). This works well in all iOS first-party apps and MS Word.

    However in Excel there are three problems:
    - once you double tap a text box to edit the text box and press the keyboard with two fingers, the cursor jumps to another place. This should not happen.
    - you cannot move the cursor vertically, the cursor stays on the…
