Importing Excel

When I import an Excel file, extra empty space is included to the right and bottom. I checked the Excel file and ensured the last active cell is correct.  How do avoid this extra white space or is there a way to crop the image once imported?

@Tim Madel - What “extra space” are you referring to? A screenshot would help.

When I import an Excel file with this:

 I get this in the Miro board:


Only embedded image files can be cropped.

Here’s a screenshot - I had to block out the actual data.  But the red block are the Excel cells that contain data.  You can see there is extra space to the right (and a little at top and bottom though I am not worried about that).  If I resize along the right edge the space stays there.

@Tim Madel - Sadly, that’s as good as you’re gonna get at this point. It looks like Miro simply reads the uploaded file and displays it either landscape or portrait mode and creates as basic thumbnail view of its contents. This is just “something” to help visually represent the file’s contents, rather than just show an Excel icon.
