    • Allow user to undo new updates (i.e. return print grid to default, allow color change to individual rows, etc.)

      allow user to return default settings to a previous version, such as Office 2010. New version is too complicated.

        • Autofilter zum Druck verwenden

          Beim Ausdrucken soll es die Möglichkeit geben, dass ich mich auf einen Autofilter beziehen kann und mit ein Druckaufträge z. B. die Ergebnisse für den Autofilter der Spalte B drucken kann. Das spart viel Zeit, wenn Einzelaudrucke nach Autofilter gemacht werden

          • wrap spreadsheet for printing

            I have a wide spreadsheet which would print over 2 pages of A3 in landscape mode, but the rest of the sheet is blank.

            Can you please develop a way to 'wrap' the columns of the spreadsheet so that they are displayed on one sheet of paper instead of across multiple sheets?

            • Printing Multiple files from Excel

              Office 2016 Home and Business Version 9226.2114 does not allow you to select multiple files and right click and print them anymore, this works in version 8528.2147 but has now stopped working, this only affects Excel as Word still works as expected

              • Auto display print preview

                I added a "Print preview and print" button to my button bar. When I click it, it takes me to the same page as File > Print, which is fine. In the area where the print preview should show, all I see is a button "print preview". It doesn't show the preview unless I click the button. Why doesn't it automatically show print preview like it did in Office 2010?

                • Labels directly from Excel without word

                  Why in 2017 can we not do labels in excel. Why do we have to mail merge in word? Excel is where the data is. Make it easy to just do it from excel as well.

                    • Enable Headers and Footers to include variables based on a cell reference

                      It would be great if a cell reference could be used within a header and/or footer

                      • Apply page setup setting to other workbooks

                        I am looking for a method to apply page setup settings (header, footer, and all other page print setups) to other workbooks (not sheets in the current workbook).

                        Example:

                        I have the setting I need in a file (excel template or other excel file).

                        Some other SW tool is automatically generating reports in excel file format (new workbooks).

                        I need a method to apply the page settings to the new workbooks (and not to do it manually to each of them)

                                This is for landscape as well. Alternatively, if I can print pages 1,3,2,5,4,6 in that order, that would work as well.

                                  Please put the Output option "3 hole punch left" as the top option. It's surely what 98% of people use, at least in the US. It's a hassle to scroll down to that option every time I use it. Thanks

                                      • its a complaint

                                        Under page layout there are two headings, grid lines and headings. It seem to default to print headings. if one deletes the tick box and then ticks the grid line print box and save the sheet. when re opening the sheet it has automatically defaulted back to print the heading instead of the grid lines. how does one resolve this issue

                                        • Enable printing of thin colored borders (or warn that they will appear black)

                                          When printing cells with thin borders (thinner than the default) that are not black the border color is always rendered as black. The custom borders dialog should either warn the user when setting a non-black color for a thin border, or prevent the user from selecting a non-black color for a thin border, or allow the user to override this behavior.
