Hi everyone – we continue to work on performance improvements in this area and other areas of Excel. It’s a gradual process, so there have been some improvements already, and we will have more to come.

I'm running Office 16.16.2 on MacBookPro (Early 2015 model, Core i5 2.9GHz, 16GB ram), on MacOS Majave (10.14). Excel for Mac in painfully slow in Page Layout mode. Several seconds to copy a small selection of cells. Several more seconds to paste. Scrolling is painful. In normal view, it's fine. I am just about to upgrade to Office 2019 to see if it's an area Microsoft has improved on. I'm not holding out much hope.
