    Great news. We have started to rollout the Unhide multiple sheets dialog box improvement! It is currently available on Office Insider Windows- Beta channel build 16.0.13424.10000 and up.

    We are working on rolling this out to a general audience (Current Channel), as well as to Mac and Excel for the web. We will post updates here.

    If you are excited by this change or have comments for us, please share at File→Feedback.

    Thanks, Urmi

    I've launched a social media campaign as of late to promote this, and I've gotten more 200 votes in the past week. Please help this initiative by promoting this topic on social media. I've also gotten my team members to vote. I think we need at least 1,000 votes to get the development team to take notice. As of today we're almost half-way there. Please help get the word out!

    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 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 since named ranges can be dynamic, meaning that the range is calculated when the workbook is calculated.

    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…
