a spreadsheet has thousands of lines and

need that many cells. Is there any way to limit
the amount of lines and rows in a specific file?
As has been suggested, there is usually no
overhead in having so many rows and
columns. Until they are used, they exist only in
the screen display and are not (explicitly) saved in the document file.

It is actually an usability improvement I'm
after. If you are using a mouse with an inertial
scrolling (such as an Apple mouse or trackpad)
and you want to get to the end of your sheet,
you can do a strong stroke with your finger.
Problem is, you don't get to the end of your
used field, most of the time you end up in the
middle of nowhere among unused cells
. It would
be nice to limit the size of your sheet then
Someone has already beaten me to the suggestion
of Ctrl+End, which moves to the last occupied cell.
Another idea is to hide the rows and columns
beyond those you are using; this is easily done
using Format | Row > | Hide and Format | Column >
| Hide. Ctrl+down-arrow and Ctrl+right-arrow
usually move to the last row and column
respectively, but will move to the last unhidden
row and column if you have hidden the rest. I
hope (and believe) that you will find that your
mouse action is also limited to the unhidden region of your sheet.
I trust this helps.
