  1. Bug: Print sets page layout to the same across all worksheets on Excel for Mac

    To reproduce the issue, setup two sheets with different page layout (e.g. fit to pages, orientation etc). Select both and press print, then press cancel. Both sheets will now have the same print layout. This seems like a bug because:


    • This is not expected behaviour as it directly contradicts the documentation for Excel for Mac (see link below)

    This issue has been fixed and the fix will be available in version 16.35 or greater. Go to the help menu and choose Check for updates.

    Previously, orientation and paper size settings on individual worksheets were being overridden by the setting in the Print dialog. This meant that if you had 1 sheet to print in Portrait, and another in Landscape, you had to print them separately, otherwise they would both print in the same orientation. The settings were removed from the print dialog and now should be set on the Page Layout tab of the ribbon for each specific worksheet.

    Please send feedback by clicking the feedback button in Excel if you notice any issues with this or anything else in Excel.

  3. Printing vertical and horizontal worksheets

    When printing within a workbook that has both vertical and horizontal work sheets the page orientations all become vertical or horizontal rather than maintaining the original orientation.

    This request has been completed. You can now find the Page Break Preview button next to the Page Layout View button on both the ribbon and in the status bar. Thanks again to everyone who asked for and voted for this suggestion.
