How can we improve Excel for Mac?

Incorporate default zoom level into preferences rather than saved into the workbook

I'd like to see zoom level as an individual preference by machine/license rather than incorporated into the workbook.

    I would like to see the default zoom level set in preferences as well. Rationale: To get worksheets to a nicely readable size you have to zoom to about 150%. When you use the New Window command all of the sizes are reset to 100% in that new window. Also, when you receive a workbook from a Windows user, each sheet is typically zoomed to 100%, because on Windows 100% is comfortably readable. As a result, too much time needs to be spent getting the worksheets back up to 150%.
