  2. Extend the Free Office App to include the new 10.5" iPad Pro

    Apple has just released the new iPad Pro 2, and the smaller version has increased in size from 9.7" to 10.5". This puts the smaller iPad Pro into the size that requires an Office 365 subscription. Since it is still the "smaller" version of the Pro, it would be nice it it was still eligible for the free versions.

  3. Fix the bug in "Draw" when it's not available when columns are frozen

    One of the most exciting things about draw for Excel is the possibilities of using excel in the field. I'm a disaster relief worker, and I use an excel spreadsheet doing field inspections on a Surface Pro. It kills the usefulness of the spreadsheet when I can't freeze the left column and top three rows

  4. Keyboard Shortcut to Edit Active Cell (like F2)

    Excel for iPad needs a hardware keyboard shortcut to "Edit the active cell and put the insertion point at the end of its contents." This is the F2 function in Excel for PC. This shortcut is very important for people who rely on the arrow keys to navigate spreadsheets.

  5. Slider or Scroll Bar via Data Validation

    I would like to see a slider or scroll bar become an in-cell data validation option (just as I'd like to see a date picker for dates and a new checkbox option).

    This feature could be integrated into the "Whole number" validation criteria with a simple checkbox like "Show scroll bar".

    When you double-click or double-tap the cell to edit the value, the scrollbar could appear immediately below or above the cell, as shown in the attached image. (For this image, I used a form field scroll bar, but I think it gets the point across).

    I'd like to see…

  7. Allow more flexibility with charts, such as modifying the axis scales (min, max,units, etc.)

    The graph may be totally useless, as the axis start at x=0 and y=0 in a XY graph (for example, when data becomes a tight group).

  9. Please add VISUAL PREVIEW of excel SHEET or TABS

    Please add a PHOTO- THUMBNAIL and SOME TEXTS for PREVIEW of EACH excell sheets or tabs within same excell file.

    It will make easier to find or locate and recall which content was hidden in which SHEET/TAB and also will help to REMEMBER easily the content.

    It will also reduce the chance of overlook an important sheet in an excel file.

  10. Quick scrolling on Excel and Word

    I use very large files on Excel because I am importing data from government sources.
    On Windows/Mac, there are scroll bars for navigation.
    The data can have hundreds of thousands of rows. is there some method to quickly navigate these files on IOS, like a way to turn on scroll bars/ hidden gestures,etc? using swiping is of course, ludicrous on large files like these! Excel for IOS importa the dataeffortlessly, but I cant move around quickly (I cannot swipethrough a 50,000 record file!)

  11. Preview scaling

    I use MS Excel on my iPhone (in addition to my normal desktop/laptop usage). It is very annoying that there is apparently no way to scale the preview, which in my particular case is teeny weeny!

  14. Dual-color cell fill

    The iPad version of Excel only allows for a single color cell fill, unlike the PC version which allows dual-colors with various affects. A dual-color cell fill (or at least display from a dual-color cell PC file) would be helpful.

  15. Add Dark Themes to Excel for Android

    I use excel to record my temperature when I wake up every morning and having a blindingly bright screen flash in my face in a dark room is very painful. We already have dark themes for the computer versions, why not add them to the android versions too?

  18. hold down command key for keyboard shortcuts

    I would like that, as in native iOS apps such as Safari, holding down the Command key for a few seconds displays a cheat sheet of keyboard shortcuts available in Excel.

  19. Customizable toolbars...or at least a customizable ribbon

    The ability to create custom toolbars of any size or orientation, and position them on the screen in a way that best fits the workflow was a brilliant feature that was killed by the ribbon. If Microsoft won't bring back custom toolbars, then at the very least the ribbon should be customizable.
