Please enable Synchronous Scrolling in side by side on the MAC version of excel office 365. I need to compare many spreadsheets per day
Side by side scrolling is not available on MAC Excel 365, but this feature is available on Windows version. Please enable synchronous scrolling in side by side mode on excel for Mac. I need to compare many spreadsheets per day and this feature is invaluable. I just moved from windows to mMac and find I need to still have a Windows machine to use this feature. Is it on the Roadmap - if so when is it expected?

Please enable synchronized scrolling in Word for Mac.
The purpose of reviewing documents side-by-side is to look at them at the same time at the same point in the corresponding document. To have to go back-and-forth between the two documents, nudging them along at the same increments is tedious and frustrating, especially with lengthy documents. Please enable this feature for all Word customers, not just for PC users.
Once again the legacy of Microsoft strikes. They claim to becoming a service company and moving away from personal computer hardware...yeah right!!!....they only service windows; that is why companies that provide platform agnostic experiences provide better service.
I guess that people at Microsoft do read this and do one thing -
Laugh! and laugh hard,
On how they managed to make people realize that Mac is inferior system.
Please enable Synchronous Scrolling (for both Excel and Word). This s a very important feature that OSX users are missing! why so? We pay the same rates, why do you give us an inferior product? This kind of disregard for the users' needs won't make anyone change platforms...to the contrary.

Same with me. I'm a book editor and synchronous scrolling is an essential feature that I need. If I was aware of this situation I never would have gotten a Mac in the first place. Question: is there any evidence that this feedback is being read by anyone at MS Word? Has there been any sort of response, or we screaming in the wilderness?

We can complain about a single missing feature, but this is actually a bigger issue. There are just too many feature-set differences between the Windows and Mac versions. I get it... you want us to run Windows. Well, suck it up. I'm not. But I *AM* paying the same price for Office365, so there is zero excuse for not having feature set parity.
It's time for Microsoft to realize that an Excel user needs ALL of the features regardless of platform. This is equally true for every Office365 product. I might even take it to the next level to suggest that there needs to be a version of SQL Server that runs on MacOS that is the feature-equivalent of the developer/desktop version for Windows.
I REALLY NEED SYNCHRONIZED SCROLLING TO SAVE ME HOURS OF WORK! I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY YOU GOT RID OF IT. PLEASE HELP BY UPDATING AND INSTALLING!
Yes! Please enable synchronized scrolling in Word for Mac. The purpose of reviewing documents side-by-side is to look at them at the same time at the same point in the corresponding document. To have to go back-and-forth between the two documents, nudging them along at the same increments is tedious and frustrating, especially with lengthy documents.

Totally agree! It's ridiculous that the same features aren't available for both operating systems. I'm an editor and occasionally need to see two files side-by-side. It wastes time to not have synchronous scrolling, not to mention how infuriating it is that the program differs based on what OS you're using.

YES, 100% agree!! I have large spreadsheets in different workbooks and all I hear is talk of how "wonderful" iMac's, Mac book Pro and Apple are...and yet a simple Sync Scroll of two spreadsheets or workbooks cannot be done. Guess I have to get my Windows Laptop back out as these apple products cannot do simple tasks for efficiency and that is what I need. Back to Windows OS!! for me!
Ah, found the answer - ITS NOT THERE for WORD either, so I get to edit a 250 page document on my laptop instead of a 27in iMac - great !
