Outline group settings clarity issue
Go to the Data tab and click on the small arrow in the bottom right corner of the Outline group to bring up a Settings window.
It has a check box labelled "Summary rows below detail". It is not clear what this means when the box is unchecked. Does it remove summary rows entirely, or just put them "not below" the detail?
Even though there are only 2 options, the check box should be replaced with radio buttons for "above" and "below". A similar argument can be made for the "Summary columns to right of detail" check box.
Alternatively, revamp the way that the position of summary rows and summary columns is changed. Make it more user-friendly.

It's not that I don't know, right now, what unchecking the check box does. It's that when you encounter it for the first time, you have to think a little bit about what it means, and I suggested clearer alternatives. I'll clarify my suggestion with some examples along the same lines.
Checking the check box means "I want summary rows below detail". There is no ambiguity there. Unchecking the check box means "I don't want summary rows below detail". Are you saying that you don't want to position the summary rows below the detail, or that you don't want summary rows, which are below the detail?
If you offered to take a friend to Burger King, and they replied: "don't take me to Burger King", did they consent to being taken out but just not to Burger King, or do they want to be left alone and refuse for you to take them out anywhere?
If a GPS told you "don't turn left", does that mean "turn right" or "go straight"? Did it want you to turn but just not left, or did it want you to ignore the upcoming left turn and continue straight ahead?
Really? You don't understand what happens when you uncheck the box?
