    UPDATE: The improved scrolling experience, which we call “Smooth scrolling”, is now available to a randomly selected 50% of Insiders who are using Excel build 16.0.14329 or greater. If you don’t see any difference, it means you’re not one of the lucky 50% of Insiders who have it enabled on their computer. Don’t worry, we’ll enable it more broadly soon.


    Good news! We’ve started working on this suggestion. You’ll be able to stop scrolling partway through the row or column. The sheet will no longer need to snap to the top and left edge of the cells. Thanks again for all your support and patience for this long awaited improvement.

    It’s available to Office Insiders first. Here’s how you can join – https://insider.office.com/en-us/join/windows.

    Thanks – Steve [Microsoft Excel]

    Here is my answer to question 5 on the survey.

    I also agree with the Anonymous, if it was changed to only smooth scroll, I would vote to restore some snapping the lack of alignment would irritate me.

    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. …

    Alternate suggestion Tabs like a Web browser. The user can drag them together or apart as desired.
    While the tab is in the window the data can be tiled like MDI to see multiple at once with only a single ribbon.

    I am disappointed that you brushed off one of the highest requested items like this.

    Thanks for the feedback! We’re seeing a number of different posts about lookup functions – we’ll be taking a close look at this area and thinking it through. We’ll prioritize the asks according to votes along with other requests on the site. So I encourage people to keep voting if it’s something they really want to see the priority raised on.

    Best,

    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 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…

    Great suggestion – CSV hasn’t been an area we’ve been looking into recently, but we’ll reconsider. It looks like this is starting to get some votes fairly quickly. If you like the idea, then please keep the votes coming! That’s the best way to help get this onto our engineering schedule.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for your support of this suggestion and all the great ideas in the comments. We have at least one improvement planned (resizing the dialogs – see link in the description), and we’re looking at some additional improvements.

    If you have specific ideas that aren’t already listed, please add them in a comment.

    Thanks for all your support of this request. We are taking a close look at this along with the related requests about maintaining leading zeros when entering values in cells, and to stop changing values to scientific notation.

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