    I really want print preview to allow a zoom setting. Sometimes the printing is too small (or the resolution of my monitor makes lines disappear in print preview). Not having print preview zoom is a major fail! Not trying to be rude here, but what kind of software engineer could possibly think it was a good idea to remove that feature???

    You can do this using array formulas. =SUM(ABS(A1:A10)), then instead of "enter", you do "ctrl-shift-enter". This will make the formula have curly brackets around the end: {=SUM(ABS(A1:A10))}. You don't type those brackets, the ctrl-shift-enter puts them in for you.

    Still it would be nice to have this feature available in a formula, maybe =SUMABS() for people not trained in the complex world of array formulas.

    I use this concept to detect premium errors. If I get a multi-location insurance rating for a business, it is usually on dozens or hundreds of pages of paper. No customer wants to dig through all that paper. I like making the rating on a single spreadsheet that prints out on far fewer pages. Then at the end of each location, I use the formula "=Actual premium - calculated premium" (to show the difference between my spreadsheet calculated premium and the premium produced by the insurance company. In some ratings, there are factors that change depending on the entire premium size, so as you add locations, it changes the calculations of all other locations. So in some instances I will be $1 too high, and in others $1 too low. Adding together the absolute value of these differences will tell me the total amount I am off. When this becomes zero, I'm spot-on.
