    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!

    It looks weird as, sometimes switch to another tab and the slider appears and switch back and the slider remains and scroll bars are back. Reopen workbook and you've lost scroll bars again.

    It can make editing values very difficult on occasions. Surprised it's not been fixed yet.

    This suggestion is from quite a while ago and we’ve had lots of updates since then. Please comment whether this is still an issue or let us know that it’s gotten better. We’ll keep this open and monitor for votes and comments.

    Thanks for the suggestion, comments and votes for following OS X standards for menus and title bars. Some aspects mentioned here have been addressed, such as switching windows within Excel by pressing CMD+` (key that has ~ on it). We will continue to monitor votes and comments to prioritize accordingly with other suggestions here.

    Also the cursor positioning (in edit box) hot keys (e.g. Cmd+<right arrow>, Alt+<right arrow>, etc., etc.).

    If this creates conflicts, make a global preference setting to use OS X conventions of MS conventions.
