It is because of this kind of stupid behavior on the part of Microsoft that I left windows for the Apple world. I used the multi-object select tool all the time and its removal seems to signify that Microsoft Excel programmers do not really understand the value of the graphic editor which they continue to push into further obscurity with each new release. Every feature that they change, deprecate, or kill steals my productivity that was gained through years of hands on learning. The older that I get the more that these behaviors irritate me. Stop stealing from me Microsoft!

Thanks for all of the votes – the team has definitely taken notice of the activity around this issue. We moved to SDI as a result of customer requests, but it looks like we’ve got work to do to really nail the use cases people care about. From a read over the comments, I see a number of cases that we will want to investigate further as we think through MDI vs SDI. We’ll get someone from the team to take a deeper look, and we may reach out to some of you for more clarification as we go. Thanks again for all the voting and passion here!
Daniel, you don't know how to use 2010 because it had the ability to use both MDI and SDI if you know how to launch it and you can use your MDI 24/7 if you want. And have you ever used the "switch windows" functionality? You can even put the icon in your quick access toolbar so you can see up to 8 or 10 open files listed to choose between quickly before the list gets too long to display all of the options. Make sure you know what you are talking about before you post. The super majority of people in this forum have asked to have both kinds available and the ability to choose which one they want to use to be added back to Excel. You didn't read very far back in the posts before you posted. Make the default MDI if all of the non-power users want and like that - we don't really care. What we all want from doctors to accountants to engineers to salespersons is the ability to HAVE BOTH OPTIONS in 365. MS obviously doesn't want the intelligent user community to use their product anymore or they would have fixed this almost going on two years ago now. We are all searching for something else to use and when we do MS will find themselves going the way of Word Perfect and Lotus 123.
