Easy to Find

Sometimes it is difficult to find the formulas / names that you care about, especially if you have a large workbook that contains hundreds of formulas.

Now it is easy to filter all the available formulas and names with various criteria, for example the type, scope, or keywords.

There are also extended properties for filtering / finding items, such as visibility, referring to external resource, with relative references, unused name etc.

Easy to Update

Besides Add, Edit and Delete, now you can even convert a local name (scoped to a worksheet) to global name (scoped to the workbook), or vice versa.

To update many formulas / names in a batch, you can even export all the related names / formulas, modify the exported list, and then import the whole list.
