    Oh, and along the lines of labeling axes,

    *We should be able to stagger category axis so the labels can be horizontal and readable.

    *We should also be able to control 2-level (multi-level) category axes more easily.

    *We should be able to start a histogram category axis at a specific number without having to add dummy data to fake it.

    *The 100 offset and the 0 offset are not different enough to control the distance between the axis label and the axis itself. 0 should touch the axis.

    We should have options to deal with various common scenarios for labeling charts and axes without resorting to complex number formatting.

    For example, if my axis ranges to 2,000,000, I should be able to format the labels below 100,000 with a K (as 500K) and the labels >= 1 million with an M (as 1M, 2M, etc). Basically we're asking for [>=1000000] #,##0,,"M";[<1000000] #,##0,"K"; to be a standard option. This should of course be an option for billions and trillions as well. I know we have display units, but they don't give a mix of labels such as M and K. Instead, those change my 500K to .5M (and then only after I've adjusted the decimal places), which is not what I want. We also need these options for data labels, not just axes. (In fact, we don't even have display units options for data labels.)

    It should also be a matter of one click to add identifiers such as currency symbols ($), percentages (%), units, M/K, etc., to the labels. The standard ones should be a dropdown or selection of some sort with an option for custom where we can input our own identifier. These should be treated as text and not affect the underlying data. They are just for labeling purposes, you know?

    Add to this the option to label only the first label on the axis. [=2000]$#,##0;#,##0 for example.

    We should be able to change colors for axis labels easily. We can do this now with number formatting. Why isn't this just an easy selectable option? #[Red][<500]0;[Black][>=500]0 for example.

    Decimal places should be smarter. If I add currency, chances are I don't need decimal places. Why is the default 2 decimal places? Sure, this is probably the case in the cells, but not on axis labels, and more than likely not on data labels, either. So why is 2 decimal places the default for those?

    Decimal places as described in the original post should also be easy to apply.

    Users should not have to jump through number formatting hoops to make these things happen.

    Thanks for all the support and comments about this request. We don’t have plans to add this format in the near future, but we’ll keep monitoring the votes as we prioritize this suggestion among other requests.

    There are a few ways that you can enable this already, as mentioned in some of the comments.

    1. Set the style used when you click the comma button.
    – This can be done by modifying the cell style called “Comma”, which is used when you click the comma button. See the screen shot in the comments for details, or look at this article to modify the style – https://support.microsoft.com/office/apply-create-or-remove-a-cell-style-472213bf-66bd-40c8-815c-594f0f90cd22.
    – For existing workbooks, you’d need to set the style in each workbook.
    – To make it the default in new workbooks, you can create a new workbook, make the change to the “Comma” style, and then save the workbook as a template…

    Great list of suggestions. We are working on several of these. It would be great if you could post these as separate items so we could get a sense as to the voting priority.

    Thanks,

    There are some limitations with the new chart types introduced in Excel 2016. We are working on addressing the items that you have called out.
