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.
