    • Need FORMAT-to-PRINT Features (e.g.: Print to PDF to share as standalone or embed into larger visual or old-fashioned Printing)

      FORMAT-to-PRINT Features to enhance both DIGITAL spreadsheet viewing (working in a document ourselves, embedding it into a larger file/other programs, presentations, etc) and also to allow HARD-COPY (Yes, the tree-killing type of printing, only when necessary). These help create better documents and easier sharing spreadsheet work in Excel or as a PDF, etc... Formatting items like these below make interpretation easy and enhances file sharing so that the senders and receivers can see the framework of the document, allowing them to spend less time figuring out what they are looking at, how long it is, what page they are on,…

      • Add user-defined text formatting

        Presently, I can find pre-defined text formats only.
        Please add the capability to create and edit user-defined text formats.

        • Add more editing features to graphics

          In order to make Excel for mobile a decent alternative to the desktop version, some "basic" but necessary features should be added very soon, such as:
          + the ability to edit data series linked to an existing graphic,
          + the ability to add/remove data series to an existing graphic,
          + much more editable properties for graphic elements (color, line thickness, size....)

          Well, the mobile edition should be much more than a "super viewer".

            • Format cell as a checkbox (TRUE, FALSE)

              Offer a format that displays the boolean value of a cell as a checked box if TRUE, unchecked box if FALSE, grayed box if text or other nonbool.

              Bonus: Toggle value OnClick would be intuitive.

              Lots of uses for this. Current options are awkward for users. Yes/No dropdown is not as good as a checkbox for touch/mobile.

                • Fingerprint unlock password protected spreadsheets

                  Enable users to store passwords to their spreadsheets securely in Excel app and unlock files using fingerprint scanner / retina scanner / face recognition depending on their smartphone / tablet specs.

                    • Date input for mat for Thailand

                      Currently on iOS app, date input format for Thailand region (as in iOS device setting) is set to be US-like (12/31/2016 for 31 December 2018). However, most Thai are more familiar with UK-like input (31/12/2018 for 31 December 2018)
                      I wonder if this could be change.

                              • 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)
