Have Excel scroll better when there are large cells.
If there's a really tall or wide cell, Excel jumps to the edge of the cell when scrolling past that area. This is a big pain when, for example:
- trying to position a shape
- Trying to grab the edge of the row or column in order to resize it.
Excel should just scroll normally without jumping.
UPDATE: The improved scrolling experience, which we call “Smooth scrolling”, is now available to a randomly selected 50% of Insiders who are using Excel build 16.0.14329 or greater. If you don’t see any difference, it means you’re not one of the lucky 50% of Insiders who have it enabled on their computer. Don’t worry, we’ll enable it more broadly soon.
Good news! We’ve started working on this suggestion. You’ll be able to stop scrolling partway through the row or column. The sheet will no longer need to snap to the top and left edge of the cells. Thanks again for all your support and patience for this long awaited improvement.
It’s available to Office Insiders first. Here’s how you can join – https://insider.office.com/en-us/join/windows.

CONFUSED IN MS COMPANY.
I cant buy, cant DL, only this 50% randomly ********.
Yay, finally back to normal 1999 smooth scrolling baby. I’ve had two kids since this issue was created. Glad they won’t have to experience non-smooth scrolling during their lifetime. Thanks.
Sorry but I will perpetual only. If perpetual, I will buy it
"randomly selected 50%"

I immediately joined the office insider program just to see if I get lucky today.
Очень жду выхода обновления, спасибо.

What gets me, is that somewhere, someone, has literally written code to dertmine the snap to position of the next cell, and then told the page view to animate to that position overriding the mouse delta. I mean, literally delete that bit of code, or wrap it in a If(dumb code==false) statement. Let the mouse delta determine the position. Seriously, whats wrong with you.
Well done with that Haiku dude!
Made me laugh XD
Fleeting is the user's hope
Better days ahead
"it may take a while to get it right."
Multi-billion dollar corporation is unsure if they can add the ability to smooth scroll instead of snap-to-grid scrolling... People have been asking for this for years, what a joke.
So glad to hear this, though I am very confused why we made it through 2-3 major versions (depending how you count) without doing anything about this? OK, so it's apparently dependent on the OS's scrolling algorithms/APIs, and that's why the browser and Mac version got it first. But are they saying that Windows 10 doesn't /have/ smooth scrolling to hook into? What are Word and Outlook and Edge using, then?
Also, I want to reiterate that this isn't only important for huge columns/rows. Even for "regular-sized" cells, you might want to stop with a cell off the top or left edges of the page, in the same way that you can already stop with a cell going over the right or bottom edges of the screen. Maybe all your data is right-aligned, so lining up the right-most cell's edge is more important than the left-most cell.

So exciting! Can't wait for this it will be huge!
Can't wait. It will make Excel that little bit more amazing.
Can't wait. It will make the product a little bit more amazing.
Praise God! Finally. For the past 5 yrs I'd sporadically tell MS to add smooth scrolling in Excel via the Excel feedback feature

Those who wait for something good often have to wait for a long time right?

Thank you, I'm working with a bunch of large spreadsheets with some large cells, and this has been frusterating.

It's about time. I mean, this should have been a standard functionality. Microsoft has added so many other functions that aren't as important as this.
