    Content of cells appears cut off until entering Print Preview

    I've had this come up multiple times. I create documents for others, and it bothers/worries them if they can't see the whole cell in regular viewing.

    For example, I have a spreadsheet that uses several different columns and rows. In normal view, page layout view, & page break preview, it looks as though some of the content is too large for the cell. However, when I go to Print Preview, the content is easily contained within the cell. Is there any way to view the spreadsheet so all of the content will be displayed like it is in Print Preview and not cut off?

    Try:
    - Expanding the cell width
    - Merging with another cell
    - Enabling Text Wrapping
    - Decrease font size

    When I do these things and click Print Preview, there's an excessive amount of white space in each cell.

    When in Print Preview, the cells appear like they should, but when I go back to normal viewing, it looks as though there's inadequate space in the cells.

    Perhaps there's no way around this.

    Could be an issue with the printer driver. Maybe someone else knows more. Sorry I couldn't help.

    Try formatting the cell with the same font and font size as style Normal.
