wrap column headers

Does anyone know when or if the ability to wrap headers on tables will be created? I have columns that have long names but the values that these columns contain is very small. The lack of an ability to wrap headers means that my tables are only able to display a small number of measures without scrolling

Re: wrap column headers

We do not support text wrap in column headers. Consider renaming columns with shorter names. You can also post a feature request on the forum below:

Re: wrap column headers

Thanks @AlexGorev

 

I have just seen the new 04/28/2016 release from Microsoft which includes many features for formating Matrix and Table chart. Can you confirm that wrap around header is NOT one of them? Should we still request this feature?

 

Thanks;

Andrew

Re: wrap column headers

Unfortunatly not. We were focusing on other, higer priority features. We do not have a specific time frame for the feature yet. 

 

Thanks,

Re: wrap column headers

Hi ,

 

I was very excited when wrap column headers was introduced in the January 17 update. Then very dismayed to find once published it was not supported.

Please tell me I am missing a trick, or alternatively when I can expect it to be supported?

 

Kind Regards

 

David

Re: wrap column headers

This is a necessary feature for many user requirements.
