  1. Multiple set-column printing

    I don't know if this is already possible..RE: printing..
    I would like to be able to print multiple "sets" of columns on each page... 1) this would decrease paper usage 2) the viewer of the report could see 2x (or more) of the data without flipping the page.
    EX: I have a list of 250 rows that are four small columns. I would like to have the first, say, 50 rows appear with the 4 columns of 1-25 rows on left side and some space and then the 26-50 four-column rows next to the first set of rows...or if the…

  2. Bring back "Page Setup" button in the Print menu (used to be under Quick Preview)

    One could invoke Page Setup directly before printing and adjust based on Preview. As it is now, you would need to go back into the Page Layout menu and then return to the Print menu.

  3. Excel for Mac Setting paper size

    change paper size and allow excel to remember the change for future printing. Currently if a page is set to US and I have to change it to A4 I must do this each time I print. Excel for Mac does not remember my last paper setting for the workbook.

  5. Page layout preview!

    In Excel 2011 there is a Preview button in the Print group on the Layout tab - I used that all the time to make sure things were printing correctly. Now it's several steps to get to that! Going to print isn't enough because that preview is too small. You'd have to open it in a pdf viewer, but it's added time to do that.

  6. Print lighter lines when printing gridlines (Excel for Mac v. 16.37)

    I suggest you make the weight of the printed gridlines very light so that they are more comparable to those shown on the worksheet screen. They would then be more like guidelines, and any borderlines included in the worksheet would show. My former 2008 version of Excel for Mac was like I propose.

    The current setup prints regular borders around every cell obscuring any regular borders used within the worksheet. I tried using Borders rather than the gridlines, but nothing was as light as the old setup. It would be much easier to have light printed gridlines and use Borders…

  8. In previous versions of Excel I have recorded a macro for printing setup, and then printing a specific part of a spreadsheet.

    I want to make a print button that will start a macro that sets up my printing parameters ( fit to page, select a specific part of a spreadsheet etc) and then prints it. I was able to do this in earlier versions of Excel for Mac.

  9. Fix the page boundry size when printing to Oversize paper

    When selecting an oversize page (12x18) to print on, Excel trims the printing area down to a rough 8.5x11 page area. If you select tabloid (11x17) it fills the area correctly.

    Something that prints on 8 pages of tabloid shouldn't print on 18 pages of a slightly larger sheet.

    See the previews in the attachments. One shows how this document would print on 11x17 and the other shows the reduced size of a tabloid extra.

    Thanks

  10. Drucken im Querformat

    Möglichkeit zum Drucken von Querformaten nicht nur anbieten, sondern auch ohne Verkleinerungen durchführen! Das ist momentan nicht möglich oder ziemlich aufwändig!

  12. Die Druckqualität von Excel 2019 muss verbessert werden. Linien als Haarlinien drucken, gestrichelte Linie müssen immer gleich aussehen

    Es kann nicht sein das im Jahr 2019 Ein Programm Linien schlechter darstellt als das Program von 2011. Haarlinien gestrichelte Linien müssen regelmässig sein

  15. Fix all the printing problems in the new versions. 2011 Worked great, the new one is horrible and I cannot use it

    IN Every version of Excel up to and including 2011, Excel could do a page set-up for a PLOTTER and I could print BIG spreadsheets on 48" Wide plotters. The "New" Excel CANNOT do this correctly. Anything bigger than tabloid, Excel interprets as letter size, it is disastrous. FIX THIS! or I will never upgrade.

  16. Format cell to NOT print

    It would be amazing if there was a way to select certain cells and mark them as “DO NOT PRINT”. So that these cells could be visible while I’m working but not print out when I sent the worksheet to print. I know I can hide rows or columns but I need only specific cells. I also know I can change the font to white, but that hinders my ability to see the cells while working or would make me have to constantly change font colors back and forth. This could even be added in the “Protection” tab under “Format…

  20. Enable oversized spreadsheets to be saved as one single image PDF or Jpeg

    I tis asinine that users are unable to convert or save oversized spreadsheets as one single image PDF or Jpeg.
    There are comments going back to the early 90's asking for this feature. Nice to know Microsoft is so empathetic and in tune with their users needs.
    By the way your chat is useless
