  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    Automatic page breaks cannot be deleted, therefore need to be able to switch off function

  8. 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.

  11. Forcing a page to Print as a odd numbered page

    I would like to be able to force a page to Print as an odd numbered page. As such, a Summary page (which I created) would NOT end up on the back side of another page-diminishing it's impact. I know that page breaks can accomplish the same outcome; however, page counts change due to edits, which would mean I would constantly need to verify the desired location of the Summary page. If I could tag a page to be "odd" the need to verify would no longer be necessary.

  13. print to printer and PDF at the same time

    As a small business our invoices are printed with a printer and then converted to a PDF so we can email them the customer.

    Having one button to click on to preform both features would save some extra clicks.

  16. Improve pre-printing view

    I have selected the way I want a 2-page spreadsheet to print. It has horizontal lines to separate sections. When I saw the pre-print display these lines were no longer there. Now I can't see how to get back to the page layout stage to make alterations.

    Please provide an obvious option to return from the pre-print display to the page layout stage.

  18. If an area is selected, that area becomes the default print area (NOT the entire worksheet.)

    ANNOYANCE: Currently, if a specific area is selected to be printed and the print command is given, the ENTIRE active worksheet is highlighted for printing, not the selected area, and the user must go to the drop down list and select "Print selection". Excel should be smart enough to know that if an area is selected, and print is called, the selected area should be the default print area not the entire worksheet. SUGGESTION: If an area is selected, that area becomes the default print area (NOT the entire worksheet.)

    If an area is selected, that area becomes the default…

  19. Improve usability for print preview screen

    When you hit ctrl-p to print, the default selection is a big box that says "print". In most applications, the default is the printer selection box, so that if I have multiple printers, I can press ctrl-P, press the letter of the first letter in the name of the printer I want to print to, then hit enter to print with the default settings. (Or, hit enter once to select the printer, and hit enter again to print.)

    With Excel 2019, to do the same thing, you have to press crtl-P, then hit tab twice, then select the printer, then…

  20. I would like to see the return of the use of they keys page up and page down in the print preview screen. It was so much easier to use

    Please, Please bring back using Page Up and Page Down keys in Print Preview, instead of having to navigate the mouse to the little-bitty arrows.

    If you use (as I do) CTRL-P to get to the Print Page, you have your fingers ready to easily pop the the KEYS to navigate. But now you have to change to the mouse and swish it around to zero in on the tiny on-screen arrows.

    This not only takes extra time, but that makes you lose sight of what you are really looking for, which is how do these pages look to me…
