    During the Excel 2007 beta, we told Microsoft that Center Across needed to be on the Alignment tab. When we explained why (evil merged cells etc) they agreed, but then it never made it into Excel 2007. We've missed all the versions since, but now it's time to get it in there.

    Thanks for all of the votes – the team has definitely taken notice of the activity around this issue. We moved to SDI as a result of customer requests, but it looks like we’ve got work to do to really nail the use cases people care about. From a read over the comments, I see a number of cases that we will want to investigate further as we think through MDI vs SDI. We’ll get someone from the team to take a deeper look, and we may reach out to some of you for more clarification as we go. Thanks again for all the voting and passion here!

    The new window handling in Excel is called SDI; MDI is the old multiple windows in one application window system.

    And as Erik pointed out, SDI opens numerous windows, but only in a single instance of Excel. It is remarkably difficult to open multiple instances in 2013+.
