    Every time I open a new sheet/workbook in Excel 08, it has the great idea of opening it in Page Layout view and set up so that there are dotting lines showing each page, when I switch to normal view. It doesn't take long to fix this, but it's really annoying to do that every time you open up a new sheet. Is there a way to change the defaults to make things like Excel used to do it (and the way I suspect most users use it)?

    It's just one more thing this program does that gets on my nerves. How they take half the useful features away from older versions and market it as an upgrade is beyond me.
