    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

    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?

    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.
