    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. …

    Having regex capabilities would dramatically simplify a lot of the daisy-chaining of M functions or Excel functions I have to string together as well as providing capabilities that I can't even achieve (or don't know how to achieve) with current methods.

    I hope that if/when you implement regexs that you consider a flavor that supports positive and negative lookbehinds and lookaheads.

    I REALLY wish we had this. It would allow me to create reports that are much more valuable and useful to our company. Ultimately, I wish that Hyperlinks would become first-class citizens in the Excel PowerPivot data model as well by allowing calculated columns to use the Hyperlink function.

    This is one of those areas where I feel Excel is almost there. Since I believe usage cases are more motivating, I'm including an example of a report I've recently written that can be viewed via the hyperlink below. (I've trimmed it a bit and anonymized the information.) The report shows card records from Trello grouped by the email address of the person for whom we're doing some work. I'm able to do almost everything I want in Excel including using Power Query to dynamically pull the data from Trello via the API, group it together by both Card and Checklist, and give a report for those checklist items that are still due. It's so close to being valuable to people over our current process, however, being able to quickly give the person a hyperlink to click to complete the task is both more readable and actionable than trusting them to copy and paste a URL from the report.

    Hi Ken,

    Thanks for logging this one, and thanks to others for voting this up.. We’ve actually had this on our list to get to for some time and have been balancing doing this against other… The more the community helps us rank it higher, the better the signal on overall importance… so, for those that haven’t voted for this but want it, do vote!

    thanks
