  1. RE: Blank pages are unexpectedly

    it's long been an issue where you go to print something from excel and the print preview shows blank. I've noticed that if I select multiple pages it still shows as one page attempting to print (i.e. I cannot scroll through the sheets at preview).

    This indicates that there is an issue with the system print function within Excel.

    I have been able to reestablish this connection by opening a different file (than the one that "prints blank") and going to the print function on that document. It generally works so I follow through by either printing or making a…

  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. Increase envelope templates.

    Addition of more templates so people can print not just standard envelopes.

    It would be nice to be able to mail merge more square shaped envelopes, for example Christmas cards.

  4. Make the typesetting be not terrible

    Printed documents look awful in Excel Mac. Spacing between letters is uneven. Chart lines don't align with their data points. Printed output doesn't look same as screen - e.g. text will fit into the cell on screen, but when printed runs off the edge or (if not text data) will turn into #### placeholder. It's just a huge mess visually.

  7. Fix Printing Problems in Excel Using Big Sur

    Having upgraded the other day to Big Sur, I find that when I go to print some Excel spreadsheets that I get something completely different than what I am trying to print—like part of another spreadsheet I had been working one. Not only does it not print correctly, it halts my printer, requiring manual resetting. I can create a PDF of the spreadsheet and print it correctly.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. Drucken im Querformat

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