    Thank you for taking your time to suggest and vote for allowing interaction with Excel while in Power Query Editor window. We do think that this suggestion has merit but we don’t think that we’ll be able to devote time to it in the near future. We’ll continue tracking votes for it.

    Wow....honestly, it is pretty ridiculous that this issue even exists! Especially with how long PQ has been around.

    I'm trying to automate some complex data manipulations with PQ and was flabbergasted that I couldn't navigate to my already existing end result in Excel while building the query. Am I supposed to memorize all the steps I need to build?! I'm getting around this for now by using screenshots.

    Could you imagine having this issue with the Visual Basic Editor window? Please, please fix this!

    Thanks for all the votes and support of this suggestion.

    We like this idea, but we don’t have customized keyboard shortcuts in our plans for Excel on Windows in the short term. We’ll keep monitoring the votes here so it can still be considered in the future.

    A simple color picker tool has been something I have been forever longing for! It would be so nice to have the ability to grab colors from an image on the fly instead of having to use a third-party tool and manually type in the RGB code.

    I envision this being an Office Suite feature, where you could grab colors from say a PowerPoint slide or even a web page and fill your selected cells with the exact color.

    If you wanted to get really fancy, you could even have a column in the pre-formatted Ribbon galleries to update one-click styles with the picked color in real time. For example if I wanted to format a table with a picked color, I could go to the Table Styles gallery and automatically see a preview of what that color would look like with the various pre-formatted styles

    Thanks for supporting this feature. We won’t be able to offer this in the near future, but we understand that it would be a nice improvement. Even though it seems like a straightforward idea, it is quite complex. Old versions of Excel will not support the new behavior, so there would need to be some hybrid approach that will be suitable for old and new versions. Also, named ranges can be dynamic, meaning that the range might change and conditional formatting rules would have to be adjusted when the workbook is calculated. There are lots of cases to consider and deal with properly.

    We’ll continue tracking votes for this suggestion.

    I desperately what that option added!! I can't tell you how many times I still have something copied and want to just insert a blank row. Cue a frustrated sigh, hitting the Esc key to cancel the copy, and then trying again.......

    Thanks to everyone for the votes and discussion about having undo independently in each workbook. Even though this request has been here for a long time, we are listening and we realize that it can be frustrating if you press Undo while you’re in one workbook and it undoes something in another workbook. We’ve been considering the technical challenges to make Undo work “per workbook”, and want to share some details about it with you.

    The undo process relies on the state of all open workbooks being exactly the same after an “undo” as they were before the undone action was taken. One example of how undo “per workbook” is problematic is with linked workbooks. Let’s say you have WorkbookA, with a formula that refers to WorkbookB, such as =SUMIFS. This formula will give the sum of values in WorkbookB in range A1:A10 that have “Yes” in the…

    Just put a "Center Across" button in the Alignment Group on the Ribbon. There's a great little spot for it between the "Wrap Text" and "Merge & Center buttons" :)

    Would also like to see it work vertically as well.

    And if you are up for more improvements, it would be nice if Center Across text would display when some columns are collapsed via a group (Merged cells do this currently - see: https://www.thespreadsheetguru.com/blog/when-merging-cells-is-needed).

    I made a workaround add-in for the mean time that simulates what I was recommending in this suggestion.

    It has been documented for a long time that the Center Across functionality is much better to use in place of Merge & Center. Most people don't even know the functionality exists because it is buried.in a dialog box

    I propose creating a button for it and moving it to the Home tab. There is even a place for it right under the Merge & Center button. I think having it on the Home tab with go a long way in getting people to create more user-friendly spreadsheet in the workplace :)

    Thank you for taking the time to share your request for linking min/max values of a chart axis to the cell value! We think this suggestion has merit; however, we don’t expect to devote time to it in the near future. We will continue tracking votes and comments here, and will keep this suggestion under consideration for future development.

    Thank you again, and please keep sharing your thoughts!
