Use Soft Disable primarily when Macabacus seems to be impacting Excel performance, or to troubleshoot a problem that may be related to Macabacus. Macabacus does not generally impact Excel performance noticeably when enabled, but if pausing Macabacus seems to improve performance then consider turning off Soft Disable and selectively disabling individual Macabacus features listed above to isolate the problem to a specific feature or setting.
