    Thanks for supporting this suggestion with your votes. It’s unlikely that we’ll be able to bring PowerPivot to Excel for Mac, because it relies on features of the operating system that don’t exist on Mac OS. We’ll keep tracking votes, since we know that the scenarios made possible by PowerPivot are important, even if the solution will need to be something else.

    This is a great suggestion, but we’re marking it “Not at this time”, because there are many dialogs in Excel and we don’t have a plan to address all of them at one time. If there are specific dialogs you want improved, please vote for specific suggestions about those, or leave comments here. We’ll keep tracking the votes on this one.

    There is some good news. We’re working on making the Conditional Formatting dialogs resizable in Excel for Windows.

    Thanks for your support for this suggestion. As some of the comments have concluded, there are a few complex technical issues and considerations that have delayed this from being implemented.

    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.

    One of the primary reasons for this request was to have a better way to handle formula cells in line charts, and this can be accomplished using the option to show #N/A as an empty cell. You can use the NA() function in your formulas as appropriate, and choose the option to “Show cells with #N/A as an empty cell”. To find the option for your chart, go to the Select Data dialog for the chart, and click the Hidden and Empty Cells button.

    We know there are other scenarios where a proper NULL()…
