    Right this problem is REALLY annoying me now, in spreadsheets bigger than say, an A4 page scrolling is painfully slow (on both my machines).

    If I load VMWare with Windows 7 x64 and run Excel 2010 in there it scrolls FAR quicker.

    What is going on? Is it **** programming or is there a setting someone that will speed it up?

    Patches are up to date, system is otherwise idle, reinstalled, etc all the same.

    Cheers!

    Clearly just another **** mac product from Microsoft then.

    Ditched Office 2011 for anything but very simple data collection. 2010 on x64 in VMware is so much smoother it's stupid.

    Weird, how many rows are your spreadsheets that you're having issues on? I haven't had any problems so far, but granted I've only had 2011 for a month now...

    ~ 40 by 40,000.

    2010 starts to get slowed down but its still way way WAY quicker than 2011!

    I have been having the same issue since day 1, this also occurred with Office 2008. Anyone figure anything out on this scrolling speed issue? I have about 60 columns and 145,000 rows. So scrolling needs to be quick.

    Have you tried making your window smaller vertically so that you can drag your mouse significantly below the bottom of the window? When I work on huge spreadsheets, I typically leave a few inches free of screen free at the bottom for just this reason. I agree that it is a very annoying behavior.

    Office for mac is only for small works, not big ones, scrolling and speed is a problem since office 2004.
