  1. Ability to bold or italicize half of a cell

    In regular Excel on my computer, I'm able to bold or italicize only a portion of the text within a cell, while keeping the other portion regular font. This is unable to be done on the iPad version of Excel. Please add this simple functionality to the iPad version of Excel.

  3. Page set up

    Maybe you can add page layout lines for excel
    So the mobile users can determine the exact tables they can make for letter size or legal size or A4 size without going on print set up just to view the size they made

  4. It would be nice if there would be a split screen for the new ipad OS. So i can work with 2 worksheets at the same time.

    A split screen feature for the new ipadOS would be great. This will give users the chance to work on 2 separate files/worksheets at the same time, to edit, copy, paste, or refer to one file to another.

  8. Ability to print offline

    You should not be forced to have wireless connection in order to print. This feature makes printing an unnecessary hassle for users operating in areas without wireless available.

  10. Convert handwriting to Text / Convert handwriting to numbers Option

    Apple pencil is great; so is the drawing feature but it usability is limited since it there isn't a way to convert to text/numbers within cells.

    We still have go back and re-enter data by typing.

  13. No option to ‘strikethrough’ text or cells

    Like the heading suggests, the option to ‘strikethrough’ text or cells is missing on excel for iPhone and iPad.

  15. Add a space bar to the numerical keyboard

    When imputing numbers into a cell and a space is needed, you have to go back to the alphabetical keyboard to enter the space. It would be nice to have a space bar in the numerical keyboard.

  16. Link OneDrive and Excel for file access

    When I go to an Excel file in OneDrive I can view but if I click the Excel icon and I’m not connected to an internet connection the file will not open even though the files are saved to my iPad and Excel is installed on my iPad the file cannot be opened offline? This makes no sense to me?

  17. Fix crash launch loop on Motorola G6

    Moto G6 running Android Pie 9. Excel crashes on launch and then enters a slow launch-crash-launch-crash loop. I can repro on several devices (my family has 3, all repro, one is running v8/Oreo so I guess this bug has been around for a while).

  20. Allow full Excel version on ARM chips

    As it appears possible that Apple will turn to ARM for all their devices can we see a full excel version that runs on iPad Pro and all future Apple ARM devices?
