  3. Excel Online - sheet print area

    Excel Online - Set Print Area - would be nice to be able to set a print area that can be saved, so that when others use the document, it will print the same way without having to redo all the settings.

  6. No preview for print

    When we give a print command no preview is available for what we are printing but the same feature is available in google sheets. So it should be developed.

  7. Default print option settings feature

    Currently, with Officee365 it is impossible to set default print settings to Letter or any other size. it is also impossible to set the default scaling of the printed output. If you need to print the document several times due to minor changes, you have to manually set the paper size and scaling each and every time. This is a huge time waster and should be implemented asap.

  11. Excel online printing is useless

    Excel online printinging as is, is useless it prints 24 pages vs 1 in the Excel. Change online to print using the print settings of the excel file, or don't bother. All the Sharepoint and online versions have done is add numerous clicks and time to accomplish what I need to do. Instead of being more efficient it is far far less.... add the option to NEVER open in online version of Excel, Word, or PowerPoint

  13. Make the default print size Letter (8.5x11), not A4.

    Currently, when printing in Excel Online, the default option is to print in A4. American printers are set for Letter and most of my coworkers don't know to change the default before printing.

  14. use excel print settings for excel online

    Printing in Excel online. I really want excel online to use the print settings of excel. If I print from excel online, it prints the excel tool bar, the row & column numbers, even prints the pop-up tool box with the print settings.
    I have to open the document in excel, then print. then close document. If I could print from excel online, I could do a lot of basic editing without opening the whole document.

  17. Print rows with column headers on top of every page

    From the Excel for web help section:

    If a worksheet spans more than one page, you can print row and column headers or labels (also called print titles) on every page. For example, you can repeat the first row of column headers on all pages when you have large, complex worksheets.

    This feature is not available in Excel for the web.

    If you have the Excel desktop application, you can use the Open in Excel button to open the workbook and print rows with column headers.

    Please add this feature for Excel for Web.
