        You can always remove the y-axis and its labels from a scatterplot,

                    I think Excel 2008 was the last edition that had this feature and I complauned bitterly when I discoverd that this feature had disappeared in 2011. I used to be able to draw complex diagrams with a large number of objects for displaying dynamic representaions of complex models. Not any more.

                            Dear Excel Team
                            I hope working on this item does not distract your team from working on more important issues of non-functionality of many basic functions that have been brought to your attention by many on this site.

                                We are working on a known issue where selection is not aligned correctly if you are using Page Layout View and you have some rows set to repeat on all pages. If you scroll down beyond page one, sometimes the selection becomes misaligned. If you are seeing problems in other scenarios, it would be helpful to provide a more detailed description of what you’re seeing and the steps that lead up to the issue.

                                You can submit feedback including screen shots by clicking the Smiley face button near the top right corner of the Excel window. You could also ask a question on https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_excel, which may help determine exactly what steps cause the issue.

                                I have the same issue (among many associated with selecting cells) as Dodelle Rawlings. More often than not, if I want to copy a formula to a column of cells that is longer than the window, I cannot do it because I cannot drag beyond the bottom of the window. The same thing happens if I want to fill a row wider than the window. Just one of a zillion time wasters in this awful version of Excel.

                                Yes, this issue is such a pain. And the thing about the pointer not showing the correct symbol is so annoying. Often the hand symbol does not appear which prevents me being able to drag cells to a different location. In this case I have to cut and paste. Such a time waste.

                                I have the same issue with Excel 15.32 running on Sierra 10.12.4. It is yet another really annoying glitch. The issue seems to be twofold.Often I cannot click into a cell and have to try scrolling top and down or changing sheet or some other random act. Secondly, if I can click in a cell, frequently my entry into the cell does not show up for many seconds, or does so after I have switched to another sheet and back.

                                  Interesting post from Anonymous today, but to me, a s Mac user, the instructions make no sense. For example, where is the Apps & Features page? Are you are Windows person?

                                  BTW, despite other posters in this thread saying the the cut and paste issue is fixed, I still have issues from time to time. along the the numerous other time-wasting issues of this version of Office, particularly in Excel.

                                  Rick Lawrence commented  · 

                                  100% Agree. The Clipboard is such an essential feature of spreadsheet work. It is SO inconvenient and inefficient to have to keep going back to re-copy.

                                  Rick Lawrence commented  · 

                                  Absolutely agree. Essentially, Clipboard has seemingly been abolished. The way cut and paste works now is SO frustrating as it wastes so much time having so many "lost" copies and having to go back and redo them. Please return the Clipboard.

                                          Thanks for all the support and comments for this suggestion. We will continue to monitor this and prioritize it along with all the other suggestions. We’ve been working to make Excel more consistent between Mac and Windows, as can be seen by the updates over the past several months, which have satisfied several thousand votes on this forum (multi-thread calculation, PivotCharts, modern chart types, new functions, slicers for tables). We are listening to the suggestions, comments and votes, and we will continue to make improvements.

                                          The only work around I have found is to crank up my old IMac with Office 2008 (the last of the good Office Suites for Mac) to be able to put data labels on scatter plots. In fact there are many "standard" Excel operations, missing or so time consuming in Office 365, that I have to do this for. How crazy is that.

                                          Another basic and essential feature missing in this flawed version of Excel.
