    We are looking at several ways to make formatting easier. This is an interesting approach that we will consider.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for logging this suggestion, Terry. This is a frequently asked requests, as evidenced by the number of votes on the article Ken linked to on the Power BI user voice site.

    We’re looking at this one, and in the meantime more votes would help us prioritize this work higher.

    thanks

    I generally echo your sentiment with one comment. Anything in the title bar should have a setting to hide it / remove it from the title bar. That allows some users to have quick access toolbar in the title bar while others like yourself can hide it.

    The annoying part is the other "non-removable" items such as user name, search, upcoming features, toolbar access options.

    Thanks for the suggestion Levi! We’ll be taking a look at this along with some other asks around conditional formatting. It’s a big help to see the things with the most votes, particularly within areas like formatting. So please keep the votes coming for things you want us to do sooner!

    Thanks,

    CF is very powerful but seems left behind. Here is my list of needs for CF.
    - Make window resizable
    - Don't fragment rules when cut/copy/paste/insert/delete rows
    - Make formulas work like regular formulas (error checking, auto complete, result preview, volatile only if formula used is volatile)
    - Allow referencing of named ranges and structured table reference
    - Make search/find feature look inside CF formulas

    Conditional formatting is arguably the most "left behind" area in Excel.
    - Make conditional formatting rules editor window sizable >> Yes
    - Make live preview >> Yes
    - Make formulas work like real formulas (auto complete, error checking, allow named ranges and structured reference, make them follow normal volatility rules based on the formulas used) >> Yes
    - Additions/Subtractions/Moving ranges should not fragment the CF ranges >> Yes

    An improvement to the suggestion would be to list the cells where the #REF would occur similar to Find All so that the user can click on the list and change the formula that would result in #REF and then come back to delete the cell or make the changes that would cause the #REF.

    Actually if MS fixed (improved) dynamic arrays such that it can be placed inside a table the totals would be there via the table total row. Unfortunately at this time since a dynamic array cannot exist inside a table we have this problem as well as losing the ability to used structured reference for dynamic arrays (which are essentially a table).

    I understand where you are going with this but I'm not going to vote it up. IMO a better solution is to allow 1 dynamic array function inside a table. Not only will this address your issue with sum/count/avg for columns because tables can have a "total" row but it will also fix the deficiency in dynamic arrays whereby structured/table reference cannot be used to reference a column in a dynamic array so the developer is forced to revert back to column numbers. Similarly instead of having sum, count, average rows I'd rather see a "Row Total" added to tables (similar to column totals).
