The column name is too long and doesn't move to new lines when I shrink the column. Can you suggest a way to move part of the name to a different line? Thank you for any suggestions!

Hi Kostya—thanks for surfacing this! There is not presently a way to wrap field header text in the manner you're seeking; the only way to see a field's full name is by clicking and expanding the length of the field. Other workarounds involve adding a field description so that you can operate with a succinct title and retain a tool tip to guide users. This is more highly requested feature so I'd recommend adding your vote for this improvement in our Product Ideas section.
