  1. Switch off automatic page breaks

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

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. Excel Left Margin for Header & Footer other than default and not aligned with sheet margin.

    We are left with either set default margin or align with Page Margin. I want to set Min Margin for Header & Footer (Left/Right) and some other distance for normal worksheet content.
    We can achieve the same in MS-Word but not in excel.

  15. When printing a large workbook with multiple worksheets to PDF, have the name of the tab as the file name that is print to PDF

    When printing to PDF and the worksheets have specific names, it would be ideal to print the selected worksheets as INDIVIDUAL FILES and the name of the .PDF document is the name of the work sheet. For example, if we have five worksheets the the names of the worksheets are Rob July 2020; John July 2020; Mary July 2020; Alex July 2020 and Tom July 2020, we can select the five worksheets, print to .PDF and have an option to print as individual .PDF files with the name of the worksheets. The result will be 5 files with the names…

  18. Specify Page Number for each Print Area

    Page numbering is currently set to down-then-over / over-then-down depending on preference.

    I would like to be able to specify which page number each print area should be printed on, therefore making the print order completely in my hands and not auto generated by flow selection.

  19. Change aspect ratio on "print to fit" to fill empty space on landscape page

    The print to fit feature is powerful. However, printing for example a summary project plan to a page may leave a lot of empty space to the right of the landscape page. It would be awesome to be able to change the aspect ratio to fill the entire page. The current workaround is to take a screenshot, save it as an image and then stretch the image in PowerPoint to fill the empty space.

  20. Ability to make Frozen Row(s) Print as headers (on every page)

    If I have a tall spreadsheet that will print on multiple pages, it would be nice to be able to easily turn my top row or two in to a header that appears on each page when I print the spreadsheet. I think expanding the existing row freeze tool would accomplish this most intuitively.
