    I like the idea to keep selection visible also when not having focus, but it has to be also clearly visible which one has the focus, in order to prevent mistakes with copy/cut/paste operations.
    (I often have the problem with Windows File Explorer, where it's not always clear whether the selected folder or the selected file in the folder is in focus.)

    Thanks very much for your votes. And to those who took the time to fill in the survey, thank you! This is a brief update to let y’all know that we’ve started work on this feature request along with the one on changing numbers to scientific notation.

    Oh, yes.
    As I have many workbooks with lots of sheets, using advanced features, I'd really like to get a better overview of my work.
    Besides grouping of Sheets (with collapse/expand function in the tab list),
    I'd wish to have a configurable workbook navigating pane (on the left) with the following options:
    - switch between worksheet preview images and detailed text tree view
    - multiple outline levels, with view-level selection
    - filter protected/unprotected, hidden/unhidden
    - enable/disable listing relevant items under each sheet, like:
    - - named ranges
    - - conditional formatting rules
    - - data validation
    - - objects (drawing, OLE, etc)
    - - charts, series
    - - tables
    - - array formulas
    - - hyperlinks
    - - external references
    - - errors
    - - sheet macros
    - - UDFs
    - double-click to jump to the item (for modifying it)
    - single-click to select an item (with preview when hovering the mouse cursor for a while)
    - multi-select of items
    - context menu to copy/paste/delete/duplicate/hide/unhide/protect/unprotect/edit/goto selected items (where applicable)
    - properties pane to apply changes to all selected items (e.g. for the move but don't resize with cells).

    see Ben Shneiderman's Eight Golden Rules of Interface Design.
    (http://www.cs.umd.edu/~ben/goldenrules.html)
    5. Prevent errors.
    As much as possible, design the interface so that users cannot make serious errors; for example, gray out menu items that are not appropriate and do not allow alphabetic characters in numeric entry fields (Section 3.3.5). If users make an error, the interface should offer simple, constructive, and specific instructions for recovery. For example, users should not have to retype an entire name-address form if they enter an invalid zip code but rather should be guided to repair only the faulty part. Erroneous actions should leave the interface state unchanged, or the interface should give instructions about restoring the state.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your request for linking min/max values of a chart axis to the cell value! We think this suggestion has merit; however, we don’t expect to devote time to it in the near future. We will continue tracking votes and comments here, and will keep this suggestion under consideration for future development.

    Thank you again, and please keep sharing your thoughts!

    Yes, please allow the user to apply his own automatic axis scaling algorithm.
    This is so important for many serious engineering use-cases.

    Thanks for the suggestion Nick. We’ve got some related work we’re looking at soon, and we’ll be sure to carefully consider if we can get a fix in for this then. As always, more votes helps – so keep voting for the things you care about most.

    Thanks,

    Good news. We are in the planning stages for improving the Unhide Sheet dialog box so that you can select multiple sheets and unhide them at the same time.

    Thanks for supporting this suggestion.

    Great suggestion – thanks again for taking the time to put it on this site and for the thoughtful followup comments. This is pretty related to some other work we’ve got going and already has a fair number of votes, so we’ll work on getting plans in place now and hope to get started on this soon.

    Thanks,

    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.
