Zoom scales inconsistently in Excel 2016 for Mac

In the latest 2016 version of Excel for Mac v15.29.1, using the zoom feature results in some text boxes not displaying all text, and sometimes wrapping to a new line. Has anyone else experienced this? 

I have an excel workbook that is essentially a legal form with a number of formulas behind the scenes. I can't have missing text, or text that wraps to a different line unexpectedly.  We're testing Office 2016 for a full rollout to the organization, and this is a critical document.

Hi Brett_X,

From your update in the private message, we can see that this behavior also exists on version 15.28. 

I would like to explain that when we are using the zoom feature, the cells and the text in the merged cells are not scaled by the same factor. This is a normal behavior for Office 2016 for Mac. Given the situation, we welcome and encourage you to share your ideas through Excel for Mac User Voice. Your understanding is highly appreciated.
