    Have you seen the FormulaDesk Navigator (add-in)?

    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

    Great suggestion E Bow. Thanks for taking the time to tell us about changes you’d like to see – we’re listening. We’ll take a look at this one. As always, folks should keep voting for the things they like the most – we’ll generally be prioritizing things according to the number of votes they get.

    Cheers,

    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?

    Thanks to everyone who commented on this topic. This is certainly an idea that we’ll consider, but in the meantime, I wanted to mention that if you can’t see all the sheet tabs, you can right-click on the navigation arrows to bring up the “Activate” dialog, which gives a scrollable list of the sheets, so you can select the one you want and navigate to it. I know it’s not exactly what’s being suggested.

    As with other ideas, we’ll look to see how many people vote on this, so vote for it if this is an area you want to see improved.

    Thanks,
    Steve (MS Excel)

    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.

    You can find this functionality in some add-ins, eg: the 'Track Active Cell' feature in FormulaDesk.

    Does the Formula Explorer in the FormulaDesk add-in come close to what you want, or are there other features? https://www.formuladesk.com

    Great suggestion. FYI: the FormulaDesk add-in enables CTRL+A in the formula bar (but not in the other places you mention).

    The FormulaDesk add-in can disable the F1 key (and others) for you.

    Yes, this is very useful and can cause many problems. Until Microsoft adds this, you can get this feature with the FormulaDesk add-in: https://www.formuladesk.com

    I agree, that would be a very useful feature. The FormulaDesk add-in already has this feature. Click the 'Performance Viewer' button on the FormulaDesk menu to access the feature to find all volatile cells. https://www.formuladesk.com
