Hi, 

 

I am experiencing issue with freshly installed Office 365 on my MacBook Pro 16` (2,6 GHz 6core Intel Core i7, 16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4, MacOS Catalina 10.15.4), no available updates either for MacOS or Office365, no plugins, etc.

 

When I open excel spreadsheet (8MB, 120 sheets with macros), excel gets impossible to use. I have spinning wheel literally after every click. When I wait 30 sec, I can click again then wait again. However, spreadsheet is normally working on less powerful windows machines.

 

I tried to boot in safe mode with no improvement to excel performance.

 

I am starting to wonder, if it is possible to even use excel on Mac?

 

Thanks for reply, Tomas

Really? no solution for this problem?

@Tomas_Frank Did you figure this out?  I am having the same issues.
