    It's not that I don't know, right now, what unchecking the check box does. It's that when you encounter it for the first time, you have to think a little bit about what it means, and I suggested clearer alternatives. I'll clarify my suggestion with some examples along the same lines.

    Checking the check box means "I want summary rows below detail". There is no ambiguity there. Unchecking the check box means "I don't want summary rows below detail". Are you saying that you don't want to position the summary rows below the detail, or that you don't want summary rows, which are below the detail?

    If you offered to take a friend to Burger King, and they replied: "don't take me to Burger King", did they consent to being taken out but just not to Burger King, or do they want to be left alone and refuse for you to take them out anywhere?

    If a GPS told you "don't turn left", does that mean "turn right" or "go straight"? Did it want you to turn but just not left, or did it want you to ignore the upcoming left turn and continue straight ahead?

    Nested IFs can be replaced with IFS or SWITCH(TRUE, , …).

    So like a tree diagram with a TRUE branch and a FALSE branch?

    Great news – we’ve started work on this.

    The plan is to have a button under the File menu (something like File > Feedback > Submit Ideas for Excel) that will bring users here to UserVoice.

    Cheers,
    Dan [MS]

    This should be changed to "Completed". The UserVoice button is the "Suggest a Feature" button in the Help tab in the Ribbon.

    I think it's more the anger than the ideas that'll be fresh. What I do is write my suggestions in point form in a text document as I go. Then, when I'm not busy/angry, I write out the suggestion in full. No rushing and good quality.

    On the other hand, having the UserVoice button in Excel would help raise awareness for this site, which I think is the bigger issue.

    How is it that you are unable to install old products on old computers?

    I disagree with this suggestion. You are only looking at half of the picture. Here is the other half: Before, if you clicked on the wrong cell when you were trying to add a cell reference in a formula, you would have to press Backspace a few times to delete the incorrect reference before you can start over. Now, you can simply click on the correct cell without deleting the incorrect reference first, which is faster.

    Also, I don't see any reason why "+" should be the default instead of other operations like counting or averaging.
