  1. Fix layout issues when printing (moving text boxes)

    When using text boxes to create dashboards (as changing cell sizes makes it very difficult to create a uniform look and restricts positioning) there is an issue with printing.

    Once you have got your Dash board looking how you want it to and go to print - excel muddles up the layout preventing you from doing so.

    The example I have provided only shows slight movement - a file I am working on which I cannot share has had much more significant changes rendering a section of the dashboard unreadable.

        • 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.

          • allow printing from the preview document page (w/o having to click "open online")

            When you click on a document and it opens into a preview document page, you should be able to just click a print button from that page and print what it shows you as the preview, without having to click "open online" and then selecting and printing. This would make it much easier when people are sharing a document and jsut need to print it and not edit it. This was an option about 4 months ago, but suddenly dissappeared.

            • Automatically open PDF view when printing from Firefox.

              Please see if there is a way to open the PDF print tab in Firefox without having to select "Click here to view the PDF of your document." after printing from Excel. Thank you.

                          • Print highlighted cells and non highlighted cells

                            My job just switched over to O365 from Google (wish they didn't). With google I could print the spreadsheets and have all the cells that I had highlighted highlighted on the print out. With O365 that is a big NOPE. Please put this in. I do not want to download the spreadsheet every time I have to print it. Should have been a day one feature.
