    Update – thanks for the continued support of this feature. We’ll keep this request open for voting, but we’ll need to consider modifying the behavior slightly if it is to be brought back. For this suggestion, we would want to enable such behavior on both Mac and Windows, but we would need to do it in a way that does not cause problems for people who don’t want this behavior. For example, it may be that you would type =, then hold the CMD key as you click the cells to be added. Or perhaps you would need to enable a preference to get the old behavior. Please comment on these options or offer other ideas.

    We’ve been working to make Excel more consistent between Mac and Windows, as can be seen by the updates over the past several months, which have satisfied several thousand votes on this forum (multi-thread…

    As with functions in other programs of the 2011 Suite, I fail to understand how something so simple, yet efficient is one, dropped from a newer version, and two, despite seemingly overwhelming support is still not corrected/returned.....I feel as if the road is running out.

    On one hand, I must gradually update the OS, and when I do, at some point, the 2011 MS Suite for Mac will cease to be compatible. And then I will be FORCED to move to a less capable, less user friendly software. This is somewhat akin to having the car dealership take my 2011 car and force me to purchase a Model T......

    I would challenge MS to, if the belief is that they have somehow included an equally efficient option, to then explain to us what exactly is the comparable operation . . . .

    Well, to all and sundry.

    Patience has worn thin. Tension high. Nerves frayed. Can no longer "make do" with the lack of "click cell addition" AND the issues of incredible slow calc, slow cursor and cell transition, etc.

    2016 was removed 20 minutes ago. yes, 2016, gone, deleted. And Excel 2011 has returned.

    The number of issues are shocking. And my maxed out, late 2016 MBP is not a slow machine....

    Hi everyone – we continue to work on performance improvements in this area and other areas of Excel. It’s a gradual process, so there have been some improvements already, and we will have more to come.

    Everything is slow, laggy. I am a fully maxed MBP late 2016. Since the upgrade from Office 2011 to 2016, Excel is horrible. . . . There is visible, that is seen with eye, lag moving between cells, simple summing, and on and on.

    So terrible in fact that we will move the machines back to 2011 if something is not done soon!

    Why is it that MS when attempting to improve something always removes something good....?
