Thanks for all the support and comments for this suggestion. We will continue to monitor this and prioritize it along with all the other suggestions. 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 calculation, PivotCharts, modern chart types, new functions, slicers for tables). We are listening to the suggestions, comments and votes, and we will continue to make improvements.

Here's what's really annoying: Suppose I have 2 columns of numbers, and a third column with labels, and I select all three columns and ask for an XY-scatter chart. I don't get that, I get a box and whisker chart instead. If I had wanted that, I would have asked for it! It makes no sense to give me a different kind of chart. Please fix this. It's been years since I was able to do this, and I don't understand why this is such an obstacle, when you give us plenty of other kinds of charts.Miguel Muñoz supported this idea ·
