    For me it's a panel fill window width immediately below the ribbon (around half the height of the ribbon.

    For reasons now in Level 3 MS support I cannot upgrade without losing significant parts of my spreadsheets so have to stick on 16.25 until it's fixed and this warning banner is driving me mad.

    Most "update" nagware includes the options "Skip this Version", "Remind me Later" (e.g. in a few days) or "Install Update". Better if MS provided the same options.

    The ludicrous zoom level on open that is not saved has pushed me away from Excel onto Apple software. Apple's functionality is not as good but when you are opening a Workbook every day (or more open) to add just a few new values, opening then having to adjust the zoom the whole time is a real pain to the point where I've stopped using Excel.

    I have the same issue. Everything on mobile (iOS) opens with a ludicrous large zoom and it's a real nuisance to change zoom level on every open. Such a pain I'm going back to Apple software!

    I would agree. The "disable function" does not have to be in Settings/Preferences (although an "Advanced" tab could be added) - could be a "defaults write ..." command line setting (Mac users seeking to do more advanced stuff tend to be more familiar as it's easy to do (1. Start terminal 2. Enter the command defaults write .... and it's sorted!)

    For me this has been an ongoing issue with Excel for Mac 2016. 2011 worked fine but upgrading to 2016 it stopped working. Reported many many times but no real fix.

    For me it is slightly intermittent in that it fails 99% of the time but has occasionally had brief periods where it works.

    Re: "3. Drag and drop doesn't always work - sometimes due to lag times "
    I've always had a serious issue with drag and drop of multiple chart objects. Multiple select e.g. 3 chart objects and start to drag them and about a third of such edits the charts will disappear - when they have actually just jumped away from the mouse cursor off screen (normally a screen size distance away from the mouse).

    For me this has been happening in every version of Excel of Mac 2016 (was fine in the previous Excel for Mac 20??). Been reported and nothing fixed (MS seem too busy introducing more bugs to fix any old ones)

    I don't see the issue but have in the past and I don't think it has been fixed and the reason people might be claiming it has been fixed is that what I saw was intermittent in that some workbooks showed the problem and others didn't. And with those that did, when scroll bars were not showing, if you switched to a different worksheet in the workbook then switched back the scroll bars would reappear and work properly (and continue to show and work)

    But, 16.? release had such bad bugs I had to revert back to 15.41 after only a few hours with 16.?

    Might be worth looking for other causes as I am (and always have been) able to edit comments. Right clicking on a cell that already has a comment I get "Edit Comment" (as well as "Delete Comment" and "Show Comment") in the pop-up menu. If the cell does not already have a comment the "Edit Comment" pop-up menu option becomes "Insert Comment".

    Running 15.41 Excel for Mac (the latest release has some serious bugs making it worse than useless so I had to revert)

    Startup time for Office these days is way beyond terrible. It has been raised before and has only got worse.

    Startup time together with the ever increasing number of bugs in each new release have pushed me to download LibreOffice (not yet installed but I'm getting there - and not because it's free)

    Each release seems to introduce more bugs than fixes/features.

    I noticed the appearance under 16.9 appeared different but other bugs (e.g. automatically and incorrectly increasing row height) forced me to revert to 15.41 before having the chance to check the appearance changes.

    I end-up reverting most Excel updated these days - they have become so buggy. Before any update I always copy the .app to a backup directory and sometimes you can revert by just deleting the new app and copying the backup one back. This time I needed to go back in timeMachine for some reason.

    MS need to start putting more effort into testing their releases better. I can appreciate there is pressure for new fixed and features but there would be less such pressure for fixes if they didn't release so many new bugs!
