I have a feature suggestion for your team!

In the business world we use many spreadsheets.  Each spreadsheet has a
particular purpose.  For some the flow is left to right.  For others it is
top to bottom.  I event have some that are right to left.  The global
setting of which direction the cursor moves should be a spreadsheet setting
(and I thought it was at one time).  It is very inconvenient to have to go
into the global calc settings and change the cursor movement direction for
every spreadsheet.  And invariably, the next one I use will be the other
direction from the last one I used.  A "fix" for this situation would be
very convenient in the business world.
