Description tfischer 2011-01-17 10:33:55 UTC
On large screens in large spreadsheets, it is hard to track which cells are in the
same row (or column). It should be at least optional that all cells in the same
column/row should be highlighted, e.g. by being darker, lighter, or with some
additional semi-transparent color.
Note: This is not the same as selecting rows/columns via Ctrl+Space or
Shift+Space. My request is optical only, it does not change the content or
functionality of a spreadsheet.

Good suggestion.
Instead of marking just the row and column headers we can highlight the entire row and column except the selected cell.
