Thanks for the feedback. We’ll consider this for a future release. Please continue to vote on this feature request which will increase its likelihood of getting in the product.
Scott, thanks for the update and am really glad this is being considered by MS!
It looks like there are multiple user feedback forums for the same product, which I don't get. But a similar idea is here:
At first I didn't understand your idea because I didn't think that equation editor worked in Excel, but I see now that you can use equation editor if you insert a text box.
So yes, now that I understand your idea, this would be VERY useful functionality to have right inside Excel. This combined with a visual display of math formulas would blend the boundary between Excel and basic math analysis software.

Thanks everyone for all of the passion about this suggestion! The number of votes has increased greatly in the last couple months and we’re taking notice! We’ve got a bunch of other Excel endpoints behaving this way already and we’re evaluating getting it done in the Windows versions sooner based on the number of votes it gets – so keep the votes coming!

Gareth, I got to hand it to you. I just tried FormulaDesk and the functionality in it is amazing!Because of how you wrote it I could try it immediately on a work computer, and you have already implemented some of the other ideas I have posted on these forums (like math notation display!)! With a program just less than 4 MB, you added a TON of useful functionality! If it works as well as it appears you should add a donate button on your website! I hope it does not have any show stopping bugs...and I hope that MS buys and implements this program functionality from you and makes it standard! MS, your users will love you for it!
Well, I'll be! (as my grandma used to say) You are right! And that works too! I searched the internet for a way to do this but couldn't find one so thought it didn't exist. I will have to do some more testing with it. I hope that it remembers those custom cell formats across separate spreadsheets. If so then it won't take too long to get all the ones I commonly use input in it for future reuse. Very exciting!!!
Now why did you put so many # symbols after the decimal? I tried it with just #.# "kg" and it worked, even when there were many decimal places.
