    Thanks for supporting this request. We are looking at this along with some other potential improvements to filters that have been requested on this site, such as adding a button to invert the selected values in the filter list.

    We know these are important issues, so thanks for all the comments and votes.

    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.

    Here’s more about that –

    Thanks for the support and the detailed discussion around this suggestion. We understand that there are some advantages and disadvantages with both MDI (multi-document interface) and SDI (single-document interface), and we currently do not have plans to revert to MDI. We do want to improve the experience with SDI so you can get your work done efficiently, and this post has helped toward that goal.

    Some of the specific issues mentioned are addressed as follows:
    – Stability: This has been a focus over the past several years, and the monthly releases in 2020 have been among the most reliable ever in terms of avoiding crashes.
    - Screen space – while it won’t get all the space back, you can minimize the ribbon to save some space. It only shows when needed.
    - Navigation between workbooks: you can use CTRL+F6, SHIFT+CTRL+F6, CTRL+TAB or SHIFT+CTRL+TAB to switch to the next workbook. …

    Thanks to everyone for the votes and discussion about having undo independently in each workbook. Even though this request has been here for a long time, we are listening and we realize that it can be frustrating if you press Undo while you’re in one workbook and it undoes something in another workbook. We’ve been considering the technical challenges to make Undo work “per workbook”, and want to share some details about it with you.

    The undo process relies on the state of all open workbooks being exactly the same after an “undo” as they were before the undone action was taken. One example of how undo “per workbook” is problematic is with linked workbooks. Let’s say you have WorkbookA, with a formula that refers to WorkbookB, such as =SUMIFS. This formula will give the sum of values in WorkbookB in range A1:A10 that have “Yes” in the…

    Thanks for supporting this feature. We won’t be able to offer this in the near future, but we understand that it would be a nice improvement. Even though it seems like a straightforward idea, it is quite complex. Old versions of Excel will not support the new behavior, so there would need to be some hybrid approach that will be suitable for old and new versions. Also, named ranges can be dynamic, meaning that the range might change and conditional formatting rules would have to be adjusted when the workbook is calculated. There are lots of cases to consider and deal with properly.

    We’ll continue tracking votes for this suggestion.

    Thanks for all the support and comments about this request. We don’t have plans to add this format in the near future, but we’ll keep monitoring the votes as we prioritize this suggestion among other requests.

    There are a few ways that you can enable this already, as mentioned in some of the comments.

    1. Set the style used when you click the comma button.
    – This can be done by modifying the cell style called “Comma”, which is used when you click the comma button. See the screen shot in the comments for details, or look at this article to modify the style – https://support.microsoft.com/office/apply-create-or-remove-a-cell-style-472213bf-66bd-40c8-815c-594f0f90cd22.
    – For existing workbooks, you’d need to set the style in each workbook.
    – To make it the default in new workbooks, you can create a new workbook, make the change to the “Comma” style, and then save the workbook as a template…
