Excel Documents displaying portrait

Hi!  is there anyway for previewing an excel document so that it shows in landscape? when we click it's just Portrait!  I've seen mentions of 'page tools' but cannot find that anywhere, your help is greatly appreciated!!

Hello @Graeme Craig!

That is an interesting behavior. I tried to replicate it, but my excel file was displayed as expected, in landscape:

With this in mind, I would like to ask you a few things:

  1. Are you using the office macro? Insert Microsoft Office macros
  2. Does this happen with any Excel file you use?
  3. Is this affecting other users as well?
  4. Would it be possible for you to share a screenshot of dummy content so we can see what happens?


Please, be careful when sharing the screenshot. Our community is an open space and everyone can see everything here.

Hi Diego! thanks for replying, this happens with any excel spreadsheet we upload, I've tried the excel macro also. No matter what spreadsheet we open it previews it in landscape. 

Hi @Diego any ideas? :)

Hello there!

Yes, I do have an idea on how to see your excel files in a vertical format. Looking at the preview on my site I noticed that as soon as I clicked to preview, the zoom level was set as 207%:

When I click the "-" sign inside the magnifying glass at the bottom of the preview, I was able to see it at 100% size:

The only limitation I found to that is that you need to do it every time you preview the file.

Hope this helps!

Hi @Diego  thanks for your reply. The issue is when previewing excel its viewing it in portrait. We were hoping it would view the excel document in landscape to allow us to see all the fields. 
Any suggestions on how we can see the preview in landscape?
