  4. 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.

  5. Have an option for different default printer

    Add a separate default printer option, strictly for Excel. I have users that printer primarily to label printers, for example. They are often in a rush, and forget to change the printer when they are printing from Excel. This leads to many wasted labels/time/etc. If Excel had its own default printer, that would make life so much easier!

  6. 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.

  8. Page numbering based on assigned print area

    The footer should use only the pages defined by the defined print area for calculating the total pages.

    If a spreadsheet that contains data that will fit onto one page wide by several pages tall, yet also has data in columns to the right of the single page, those pages get included in the total page count. This problem is seen in the footer when a page number formatted as Page X of Y, the Y value will use all the pages that contain data on them as opposed to just the number of pages contained in the defined print…

  14. Better label creation.

    Allow user to create labels using data from multiple cells in a table row. Now that Excel can be used like a database, it is almost the perfect app (mixture of database and spreadsheet) . If you add better navigation forms, then we're talking, as it is too inefficient to require two applications (Excel & Access or Excel and Word) to work together to meet basic needs. But for now we need the ability to create labels using data from multiple cells (fields) in each record entry (row) just like in MS Access. Or, you can add the ability to…

  15. Fix Image/Logo Distortion When Printing

    Please fix that images get expanded about 10% horizontally when printing. It saddens me that I have to choose between having my company logo look good on the screen OR in print, but not in both.

  16. Why is not possible to print a "named section" of a sheet?

    Solving some printing problems of parts of a sheet, I wonder if it would be possible, after to have named a group of cells inside a sheet, then print them just recalling them from a remote cell (write in a different or in the same sheet) in wich the name of the group is written.
    This will be a very good and easy way for printing differents part of a sheet and could be very creative without passing through MACRO Function that are not so easy to manage.
    So we could print different parts of a document making different printed…

  17. Option in 365 to MANUALLY print on both sides!

    In my old Microsoft Excel, I had the option to manually print on both sides. In the 365 version, I have no option to do that. So even if my printer says it will duplex print, it still prints 2 sheets because my printer needs a MANUAL fix of paper (which I don't mind doing). But not having that option is really fuking up my work and wasting a sht ton of paper. Now I have to take more time to print each document section by section because of that non manual feature.

  18. print selection should recognize if users selected cells and automatically choose "print selection" instead of the default

    when I select cell and then open the print dialog the print select stays default. Instead it should automatically change to "print selection" as I have chosen cells

  19. Clarify which Print Preview (Ctrl+P) settings are global vs. per-worksheet

    The print preview and settings window that appears with Ctrl+P needs to clearly distinguish which settings are global (set once per print job) and which settings are worksheet specific (set per worksheet in preview, or in the Page Layout tab's Page Setup dialog box). Otherwise you assume that changing any setting in the print preview and settings window will apply to the print area selected (especially Print Entire Workbook).

    For example, the Printer drop down and print area drop down (e.g. Print Entire Workbook) are global settings. Group these under a heading that makes that clear. Meanwhile Scaling (e.g. Fit…

  20. Option for saving a preset or template for multiple custom margins.

    As of now, we do not have an option for saving a preset or template for multiple custom margins. Please add such a feature. It is so helpful and much required for me.
