ok, but please explain exactly what you mean with "fit to print" and "where" should that new option go in the user interface.
Comment 2 patrickgo 2014-05-16 00:41:24 UTC
When choosing the print option, especially in excel, you usually end up using more paper than you should to print since some column or row spills over to another page. 

Excel has a adjust the scaling to a certain size or fit to option to make the scale of the selected print area or cells, fit into one sheet of paper by shrinking everything. 

This feature would go on the print or page setup option. 

Thanks.

please do not use you email software to reply to the discussion but rather post your comments directly in the web page at this URL.

I set status to NEW.
If you could provide a screenshot of that Excel feature it would be helpful.

screen shot from excel page setup screen that has print scaling option

When choosing the print option, especially with a spreadsheet, you usually end up using more paper than you should to print since some column or row spills over to another page. 

Excel has a adjust the scaling to a certain size or fit to option to make the scale of the selected print area or cells, fit into one sheet of paper by shrinking everything.
