  1. 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.

  4. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. Formatting in Excel should pass to Word Labels

    Using Word for mail merge labels but no easy way to pass the text/cell formatting 2 Word. Word should inherit bold, color, etc. Label Wizard for Word? Keep the formatting option? Macro or Add-in?

  13. BUG: Fix Language specificity of headers

    Not a suggestions, a real bug.

    Expected behaviour:
    - User A creates header/footer in his chosen language (e.g. in German).
    - User B open document with different language (e.g. English) and header/footer is consistent with what User A receives.

    Current behaviour:
    - User A creates headers in his chosen language (e.g. in German).
    - User B opens document, header and footer are completely borked. If User B now fixes the header/footer to conform to how they should look and User A opens it, it is borked again.

    Suspected reason: The tags that are used to specifiy things like &[Page] and…

  17. 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!

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
