    Good news! We’ve started working on this suggestion, and we’re currently testing the improved scrolling experience in our lab. It will allow you to stop partway through the row or column. The sheet will no longer need to snap to the top and left edge of the cells. Since scrolling is such a fundamental and highly used action in Excel, it may take a while to get it right. We hope to have it ready within a few months, but can’t provide an exact target date just yet. Thanks again for all your support and patience for this long awaited improvement.

    We’ll post an update here when we start rolling it out for you to try. It will be made available to Office Insiders first. Here’s how you can join – https://insider.office.com/en-us/join/windows.

    Thanks – Steve [Microsoft Excel]

    I wish Frank were still alive to see this. The world has changed so much since--it's a completely different place. He would never believe it.

    I had an Excel sheet for tracking invoices, with some large cells full of notes. Because Excel jump-scrolls, I missed an important note that cost my boss a lot of money. He fired me. Now I live in a tent, selling handmade spreadsheets to buy food, and my wife left me for a Google Docs user.

    I've come to realize it's not the destination, but the journey that matters. Sure, this problem makes for a disgusting and unusable interface. Sure, Microsoft shows zero respect for its users, ignoring the problem and neglecting even to communicate with us about it.
    But certainly life is about more than just having working software, being productive, or making it through the day without setting your head on fire. Life is about the connections we make with others, and this forum has truly brought together a community.
    I count you all among my dearest friends. We've grown together from a bunch of ragtag kids into something that transcends spreadsheets. Who here hasn't spent hours working with Anonymous, or gone out for drinks with Anonymous? Who here hasn't been able to turn to Eric Patterson (Program Mgr - MSFT) in their time of need, 100% confident that he might respond someday, maybe?
    We're more than a forum. We're a team. We're a family. And when we band together, there is nothing in the world we can't do. Other than get a bug fixed.

    Hi Jess! Thanks for the input. You make a good point that the window scrolls gently, the way we want, when you are holding down the middle button like you describe.
    This also illustrates the problem, because if you smooth-scroll so that a row is partly off the top of the visible window, and then let go of the wheel, the scrolling will snap so that the top of a row lines up with the top of the window.
    Using the middle button is a work-around if you just need to peruse smoothly, but if you need to work with very tall rows, this doesn't solve the problem.
