    • 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.

      • Add back the ability to select custom paper sizes

        This is a regression from previous versions of Excel for mac. When doing page layout, it is a requirement for many users to be able to specify the paper size, regardless of what is currently made available by the printer driver. This was possible in previous versions of Excel, but now, the Page Layout / Size menu does not have a Custom option.

            • 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…

                Fix problem with Excel for Mac V16.X crashing when printing a tab from a complex spreadsheet that contains links. If I rollback to V15.41 it prints fine. None of your recent updates have addressed this issue. Using High Sierra OS, with latest updates.

                • 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

                  • Excel 16.12 Bug?

                    I made a spreadsheet with the headings at a 45 degree angle. If I put a tint in those cells, the headings don't print! Without the tint, they print fine. The headings that aren't at the 45 degree angle print fine with a tint.

                            • Excel 2016 for Mac - Cell Formats change when printing from VBA

                              When I try and print from VBA in Excel 2016 for Mac the format changes from what is displayed on screen (Dates change from DD/MM/YY to MM/DD/YY and £ changes to $) - even after printing the correct format is shown on screen but the print out is incorrect.
                              If I print manually it prints correctly - however I can't do this as it's program to print many items.
                              In short - printing from VBA changes everything to US format on the print out but not on screen - printing manually keeps the correct format

                                The Excel Mac preview is very small. This is unlike a PC where the image is much larger and easier to read. Also, there is no preview shortcut on the tool bar.

                                    • Provide the option to print in landscape right to left sot the bottom of the page in on the right, not the left.

                                      Provide an option to print landscape in the opposite direction. With paper that's already been pre-punched with 3 holes, the current landscape print option places the holes at the bottom of the page. Useless. I shouldn't have to change the paper every time I need to print. This should be an option direct from the print menu.

                                      • The Macbook Air refuses to print grid lines

                                        I can see the gridlines in preview, but can't get the document to print gridlines. I've checked gridlines everywhere and checked the appropriate box in borders

                                        • Print on any paper size and particularly larger than A3

                                          I'm on Mac OS.X.11.6 and Excel 2016 (15.26). I want to print on any paper size and particularly larger than A3. Thank you not to limit the number of paper size and can set it as one would do with the older Office. (Translated from French by Google Translate)
