    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.

    Windows has a view you can select at the bottom right called page break view that lets you customize exactly what gets printed. This has to be done in a cumbersome way in Mac OS. Can we have the same functionality as in Windows?
