  1. its a complaint

    Under page layout there are two headings, grid lines and headings. It seem to default to print headings. if one deletes the tick box and then ticks the grid line print box and save the sheet. when re opening the sheet it has automatically defaulted back to print the heading instead of the grid lines. how does one resolve this issue

  2. Improve & unify Print dialogue system for all office products

    I would like to see one Printing dialogue box/window which is the same whether you are using Excel, Word, Access or any other program. eg If you wish to 'Posh up' your Spreadsheet before printing it, say change font or size for a header, you have to do it 3 times for the Header [title on LHS] [Instructions in center] [date on right]. If you wish to change the Font, you can't just type a letter for say Bookman OS, you have to scroll down each time. If you are using Access, the Print Dialogue Box (PDB) is different in…

  3. Auto display print preview

    I added a "Print preview and print" button to my button bar. When I click it, it takes me to the same page as File > Print, which is fine. In the area where the print preview should show, all I see is a button "print preview". It doesn't show the preview unless I click the button. Why doesn't it automatically show print preview like it did in Office 2010?

  4. Image get distorted when copy sheet from workbook to another

    I have two Excel files (file1.xlsx and file2.xlsx, one file could be the copy of the other)

    In these files I have 1 sheet with an embedded image.

    If I copy the sheet of file1.xlsx in to file2.xlsx, the image of imported sheet seems ok but when I print (or in print preview) it is distorted.

  6. Print multiple sheets page # of #, but NOT be total pages in the workbook

    I have users who want to be able to choose to print multiple sheets of their workbook, but then have the output show only the total number of pages for the individual worksheet, not the total workbook. The footers have the fields for [page] of [number of pages].

    Example:
    Sheet1 has 2 pages
    Sheet2 has 3 pages

    So if I print both sheets in one action, all of the page numbers are "# of 5". We would like to have the option to print all of the sheets in one action, but the pages in Sheet1 would say "Page 1…

  7. Fix print of indented cells when printing as multicolumn sheet

    When using indents on cells (i.e. implementing hierarchy), when printed, excel loses WYSIWYG, the print out or print preview distorts the indent width ratio to the font size. So the more the cells become smaller, the indention width becomes larger.

  9. It would be nice to have an 'Export to PDF' button (icon) under the 'Quick Access Toolbar'

    Frequently I export my worksheets as PDF documents. It would be really nice if there was an icon under 'Quick Access Toolbar' to this.
    The current process makes you go back to 'File' - 'Export' - 'Create PDF/XPS'.

  10. My boss insists we use 2-sided printing. It can cause problems if we forget to set for it before printing each time.

    Such printer setups could be included as part of the file. When we copy a file these setups would also be copied as part of the file.

  11. What happened to the TABLOID SIZE (11" x 17") in the page setup menu?

    What happened to the TABLOID SIZE (11" x 17") in the page setup menu? I am not even finding A3 size which is remotely similar.

  13. verzerrt

    Ein als Kreis eingefügtes Objetkt von 10 cm Durchmesser wird zu Ellipse von 10,5 cm Breite und 9,5 cm Höhe,
    Differenz also 10 %, gleiches mit einem Quadrat von 10 x 10 auf Breite 10,5 x Höhe 9,5 cm.
    Im gleichen Verhältnis werden auch Texte (Buchstaben und Zahlen) breiter gezogen und von der Höhe gestaucht, auch Logos und Fotos...
    Auf dem Tabellenblatt ist alles noch 100%ig richtig, in der Druck-Voransicht (egal ob für Drucker oder Adobe-PDF) ist bereits eine Verzerrung sichtbar, im erzeugten PDF oder Ausdruck dann noch stärker verzerrt.

  14. Create a print suppression character so that if the character is in the first column of a row it surpresses the printing for that row.

    Create a print suppression character so that if the character is in the first column of a row it surpresses the printing for that row. This will allow an automatic sorting of data when used with an if statement.

  15. Not to print

    In the page break view, as the fields are symmetrically sized, many a times there are pages blank in between not to be printed. In such cases, individual commands are needed to be given. Hence option needs to be developed to select page or pages not to be printed, and flexible area should be allowed to create required page size or shape.

  16. Page break view

    While applying page break view on a large data statement, currently only symmetrical cuts/fields are allowed. It is suggested that page break view for different shapes/fields should be developed so that while printing the required fields can be printed without an rearrangements or problem. Please consider developing flexible page break view so that the user can arrange the fields accordingly.

  19. offer a watermark that is not visible digitally but visible when the document is printed

    Adobe offers the feature to add a watermark that is not visible digitally but is visible when printed. We use it to show that a document is uncontrolled when printed.
