          • 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)

                    • Allow Excel for iPhone To Edit iCloud Files

                      Excel for iPhone can no longer edit iCloud files without an Office 365 subscription (see my forums post here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_excel-mso_imobile-mso_mobapps/excel-for-iphone-now-needs-o365-subscription-for/4985fd5d-1661-4563-a408-801ede8abc33)

                      According to this page (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/When-do-I-need-an-Office-365-subscription-b6518311-893a-4a89-bfcd-bdc56bf52085), it should be able to do everything except insert and edit SmartArt for iPhones assuming you are not using Business cloud storage. This is not the case, it prevents editing when I am using the iCloud family storage level when both Word and PowerPoint can edit files from iCloud family storage.

                        • Add F4 function to use with an Bluetooth keyboard.

                          Please add de F4/Com+T function to use Excel with an external keyboard. Please!!!! It a waste of time writing it manual cell by cell.

                          • Add option to change picture

                            The desktop version of excel has the option to change a picture to a different picture when you right click on it. This could be added along side the copy, cut, and delete options when you click a picture in the mobile application.

                            • Allow elements to be placed between grid lines

                              Sometimes it is useful to be able to place an element (character, bullet point, etc) “between” the grid lines. As a proof of concept, I've attached a mockup with the letter ‘ы’ inserted between two horizontally adjacent cells.

                              I expect this addition to the Excel worksheet model to be fundamental enough that it will doubtlessly be useful for many novel applications, even though at the moment I can't think of any.

                              Thanks!

                              • 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

                                  Because of the nature of my work I want to hide my name in comments. It can’t be that hard to go into Settings, for example, and give the option to delete it. I’m sure that a lot of people share my view.

                                  Thanks.

                                  • Enabling copying sheets from one one workbook to another with proper functionality

                                    At the moment when you copy paste a sheet from workbook to another all the formuale are lost.

                                    This is a big weekness compared to working within a windows environment. It effectively means that workbooks cannot be combined.

                                    For example, if I have a standardised financial analysis worksheet that I want to add to a work book containing a financial model I would have to re-create the formulae each time.

                                      • 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.
