    Take a look at the FormulaDesk Navigator add-in. It has exactly this. https://www.formuladesk.com/formuladesk-navigator/

    The FormulaDesk Navigator add-in has a feature called 'Track active cell' which allows you to optionally highlight the column/row, apply arrows, apply a border. All these can be customized (turned on/off, color, transparency etc.)

    John, Excel

    While you're at it, please provide an easy way for add-in developers to hook into the undo stack and preserve the stack when 'safe/handled' macros etc are called, as well as a way to insert their own undo actions into the stack.

    If you're able to run commercial add-ins, check the 'Track active cell' feature in FormulaDesk Navigator:

    Does the Math viewer in FormulaDesk Math do what you're wanting? https://www.formuladesk.com/formuladesk-math/

    Try the 'Track active cell' feature in FormulaDesk Navigator. You can customize it (colors, style etc.) by clicking 'Options' https://www.formuladesk.com/formuladesk-navigator/

    If you're prepared to run add-ins, FormulaDesk Navigator adds this option (see: Track active cell, set the options). https://www.formuladesk.com/formuladesk-navigator/

    It should be smoothly integrated, and it doesn't affect your undo history.

    When you're in 'partial' edit mode inside a cell, pressing the arrow keys will end edit-mode and move you between cells, as you've described. To get the behaviour you want, just press 'F2' and you will enter full edit-mode - now pressing the arrow keys will move your caret position inside the formula.

    What do you think of the way FormulaDesk Navigator (Excel add-in) allows you to do this? It even shows multi-row tabs at the top, if you want. Or do you have another idea? https://www.formuladesk.com/formuladesk-navigator/

    Does the 'Tack active cell' feature in FormulaDesk Navigator work the way you envisage? You can customise the color, transparency and display style etc.

    Great suggestion. At least some of the above points are implemented in the FormulaDesk Navigator add-in. Other items will be added in the future. Might be a good starting point to initiate a discussion around Excel's future features. https://www.formuladesk.com/formuladesk-navigator

    FormulaDesk Navigator (disclosure: my add-in) adds this feature and also allows you to customise the highlighting (arrows, row/column highlighting, border, colors, transparency, line-thickness etc. It might prove useful until Microsoft adds this feature natively. Please let me know if you'd like to see any other features.

    Not changing the border of the active cell, but adding a super-imposed customizable border, plus other options: FormulaDesk Navigator (disclosure: my add-in) adds this feature and also allows you to customise the highlighting (arrows, row/column highlighting, border, colors, transparency, line-thickness etc. It might prove useful until Microsoft adds this feature natively.

    I've created an Excel add-in which allows you to create custom 'tags', which are the same concept as 'groupings' referred to here. A sheet can be assigned one or many tags. The sheets can then be filtered by tag(s). It might prove useful until Microsoft adds the feature. FormulaDesk Navigator is still in beta, but you can try it here: https://www.formuladesk.com/formuladesk-navigator

    In addition, displayed sheet tabs can be filtered by color(s). Multi-row and vertical sheet tabs are also supported.

    Is anything missing?

    Thank you for taking your time to suggest and vote for this. We do think that this suggestion has merit, but we don’t think that we’ll be able to devote time to it in the near future. We’ll continue tracking votes for it so we know how it ranks among the other suggestions.

    I've just added a new feature to the FormulaDesk add-in called Quick Navigator which allows you to CTRL+TAB to switch between current sheet and previous sheet. Keeping CTRL pressed shows the Quick Navigator window. You can then TAB (or DOWN) to move down the list of recent sheets, or SHIFT+TAB (or UP) to move up. Hopefully it makes navigating sheets and workbooks much faster, until Microsoft adds similar native functionality to Excel. http://www.formuladesk.com Suggestions for improvements are welcome.
