This is a quote from Office Excel Help, "Unlike Microsoft Word, Excel does
not provide a horizontal or vertical ruler, and there is no quick way to
measure the width or height of a worksheet in inches." Well, why not? (Just
the fact that it is written so clearly in Excel Help means I am not the only
one to look for it.
Make rulers available in ALL office apps, not just Word. Getting columns
and rows to fit correctly on a page is important. It shouldn't be a chore.
Just make the rulers available so we can see what we are doing without having
to go into and out of page setup and the format funtions. (Clarisworks did a
decade ago.) Office 2003 takes up half a CD-ROM and is chock full of
features I will never use. But Clarisworks V3 is a 10 MB install and still
has more usefull features for the avarage person. The only reason I use
Office 2003 Professional is for compatibility with others. Please stop
bloating it and make it more functional for basic users like me.
