Text cutting off

I have a table that has text in it 

 

in some occasions the text is cut off by the next row of data. I have wrap text on which is why my text appears on more than 1 line but sometimes - in very random instances - the text in the 2nd line will cut off and only show me the top half of the letters, not the bottom half of letters....any ideas?

Hi @justinabalch ,

 

Sorry for that we cannot reproduce this issue on my side. According to your description, we provide two workarounds you can try.

 

1. Increase the Row padding.

2. Decrease the Text size.

If those do not help, could you please mockup a sample based on fake data to reproduce this issue, so that we can reproduce and find the reason of issue?

 

Best regards,

I had the same issue. It had to do with the horizontal and vertical grid option being turned on. When I turned them off the text was fine, with them on, some rows had their last line truncated. Seems to be a bug.

I have the same problem, the text is cut off depending on the width of my other columns. The one being cut off is a calculated column with combined values if that makes a difference?

I just managed to fix it using a workaround by adding & UNICHAR(173) to the end of my formula in my calculated column. It adds an invisible character and has fixed my issue if this helps anyone.

Visualisation

 It is fine in the data view

Hmm, well I know that there are long text viewer visualizations that are out there. Any chance you can post a screen shot? Weird that it is random.
