    The drop down list should also expand horizontally if the items have long names.

    Agreed - this is particularly annoying if you are creating formulas in one file based on data in another, as you can't select cells in the second instance of Excel.

    Good news. We are in the planning stages for improving the Unhide Sheet dialog box so that you can select multiple sheets and unhide them at the same time.

    Thanks for supporting this suggestion.

    Several times I have created a template spreadsheet of minimal file size which, when populated by other users, becomes enormous (one example jumped from 5MB to 104MB, making it virtually impossible to work with).

    On investigation this appears to be caused by user formatting - for example where someone highlights an entire row rather than just the few columns containing data, or where they don't know about the gridlines tickbox and so have applied borders to every cell in a worksheet.

    I don't know about programming, but intuitively there is no reason why it takes more space to store "highlight row 14 yellow" than "highlight cell C14 yellow".

    [We are using Excel 2010. Apologies if this issue has already been solved in a later version - a quick Google search suggests not.]
