    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 –

    Please prioritize making the dialog box for Formulas, Formula Auditing, Trace Precedents and Trace Dependents, Go To resizable. I mostly cannot clearly see what these are pointing to as they are not large enough and cannot be resized :-(
    @Steve [Microsoft Excel] can you please explain a little the effort needed / challenges for making a dialog box resizable. Thanks.

    Yes, this is also near the top of my Excel wish list!

    Yes, this is still my number 1 bugbear in Excel. Surely MS can implement better functionality as offered by various add-ins such as MART. As a bare minimum, the dialog box must be made bigger and resizable... ideally auto size.

    I totally agree. My favourite tool is the "Formula Explorer" in the add-in "Spreadsheet Studio". This allows you to jump to precendent parts of a formula at a mouse click. Unfortunately the add-in only works up to Excel 2010. Please add something like this to MS Excel! It's awesome.

    I am also not a fan of merged cells and have added my vote. But until Microsoft adds a new button, you can use mine! Simply install toolKCit, my Excel add-in available at eloquens. This has numerous tools including one to „Centre across selection“

    Just select your cells, click the button and you’re done. It also works if the cells are already merged – like magic, it converts them to unmerged and centred.

    There is a way to invert a filter, see "Remove current selection from data filter" here

    Thanks for the feedback. This is an interesting chart type. We will consider it during our planning for the next round of new chart types. Please continue to vote on this feature idea.

    Thanks,

    This is number one on my wishlist! In the dialog box I can only see the name of the file and I have to manually select each entry and "scroll" to the right with the mouse to see the sheet and cell are. Very time consuming if there are many precedents (which there often are).

    PLEASE fix this... it should be so easy to allow a manual resize as with e.g. the sort dialog box.

    If this cannot be done, please remove the file name from the precedent and show only the sheet name and cell so they have a higher chance of fitting in the visible dialog box.
