      Hi everyone – we continue to work on performance improvements in this area and other areas of Excel. It’s a gradual process, so there have been some improvements already, and we will have more to come.

        Hi Martin, are you talking about Windows or Mac Excel? The previous version of Excel for Mac was released in 2011, and we just released Excel for Mac 2016. Windows Excel had a 2010 version, a 2013, and now a 2016.

        In both Excel for Mac 2011 and 2016, there is the option to Right Click > Paste Special... or the keyboard shortcut for Cmd + Option + V.

        In Excel for Windows, there is the option to Right Click > Paste Special... or the keyboard shortcut is Ctrl + Alt + V. If you are only seeing two options under Paste Options, try copying your source cell again. Lastly, there are a few "shortcuts" for Paste Options in the Windows right click menu, but you can get to all of the options by clicking on Paste Special...

        Hope this helps,
        James

          Interesting idea. Thanks for the feedback. We’ll definitely consider this in our next round of planning. In the mean time, please continue to vote on this feature idea.

          Thanks,

          Hi Kenneth,
          I believe the functionality you are asking for is available from the Insert tab, by clicking on the Camera button - this will open up the Camera app from within Excel and allow you to insert a picture directly. There's currently no way to link the image to a specific cell (in any version of Excel, desktop or mobile), but it will be inserted into the spreadsheet and viewable anywhere you open the file.

          Hope this helps!

            Interesting suggestion Nick - we do have some documentation about the keyboard shortcuts in Excel for Mac 2016 here - http://aka.ms/xlmacshortcuts.

            Both of the specific examples you've mentioned are supported in Excel for Mac 2016, but switching the default behavior of the function keys on a Mac requires checking the box in Apple > System Preferences > Keyboard > Use all F1, F2, etc. as standard function keys.

            If you're asking for Excel for Mac 2011, I wouldn't expect to see any new features added there. But if you'd like a one-click "use Windows keyboard shortcuts" setting in 2016, then that's something we would consider adding if it gained enough traction (votes) here and in other feedback channels.

            Thanks,
            -James

                Hi Saskia,
                If the file does not contain any private information, could you upload it to an online host (e.g. OneDrive.com) and share the link so we can investigate it directly? If you'd rather not upload it somewhere publicly, I will try to find a way for you to send it to us privately.

                Thank you,
                James
