Make filter arrows smaller or place them on same line as headings (A, B, C, etc)
The arrows used for filtering take up too much space.
I end up having to make columns wider than they need to be, just so I can see the title text in the heading cell.
Can you make the arrows much smaller, or place them in the header,
alongside the letters?
@Kathy An alternative way for you to avoid this issue: use a Table for your data, then you can turn the filter arrows on or at at will - without turning off the filters themselves. In other words, you can apply a filter, then hide the arrows to see your headings, then show them again when you want to change the filter conditions.
Making the arrows smaller is likely to be very fustrasting for touch screen users (often the spreadsheets I build are "consumed" by people on a range of devices, they are generally reading, not editing, but do need to sort and filter).
Moving arrows to the headings is misleading when they only apply to one or another ranges on your sheet - if you have multiple ranges of data above one another, it would not be possible to choose between them. Again notice how tables move the whole of the heading and filters to replace ABCD etc when you scroll down and the table heading row goes off screen (so less need for freeze panes too).
