    Thanks all for asking about Page Break Preview in Excel for Mac. You can see the feature by becoming an Insider. Just go to Help > Check for Updates and check the box to join the Insider program. Choose to get “Fast” insider updates and update to the latest version to see the Page Break Preview feature. The build number should be 15.34 (170419) or greater.

    Thanks,
    Steve [MS Excel for Mac]

        We need Page Break Preview and Print Preview capability restored IMMEDIATELY to Excel 2016 for Mac! The basic features of your products should function the same on all operating systems on which they are offered. This will make the user community happy and enable Microsoft to sell more of their software products.

        EVERYONE copy and paste this comment into your comment to get Microsoft's attention!!! Bombard them until they hear our voice!!!

        Please y'all. Vote also on "Printing vertical and horizontal worksheets". Greatly appreciated.

        Why the heck do we have to vote to bring back a previous excel capability of Page Break Preview and Print Preview that should have NEVER been removed from Microsoft Excel for Mac. Please return it ASAP!!!

        There are a few ways to do this in Excel 2016 for Mac. Each of these will affect only the current sheet:
        1. You can go to the Excel preferences and choose View > Page Breaks.
        2. You can go to the View tab, and choose Page Layout View, then switch back to Normal. This will cause page breaks to show in your sheet.
        3. Another way is to go to the Page Layout tab and choose Breaks > Insert Page Break. Then click Breaks > Reset All Page Breaks.

        I hope this helps.

        An essential feature for Excel users and a complete pain that it is not on the Mac version with full functionality. I hate to resort to Parallels VM or a Windows machine , just to be able to access full Office functionality.

        This is an essential feature for Excel; the fallback, copying the relevant page, deleting all other content and formatting print to fit is intensely labor intensive and prone to error. Please restore the page break preview functionality!

        Why would you remove an essential feature for anyone who wants to print an excel file out. Which, as someone who works at a printers, is quite a lot of people!

        Please restore Page Break Preview for Mac. Why would you remove such a basic function?

        Yes so annoying that MS does NOT provide the same features of the PC versions to MAC users.... The world is bigger now and not made just by PCs...!!!

        I spend a significant amount of time trying to deal with printing problems in Excel simply because Page Break preview is no longer available. It actually hurts our office productivity; I have no idea why this helpful feature was removed.
