Hi,

Is there any way of wrapping the text in the header fields so that I don’t have to have such a wide column to fit the header in? In the example above I want to be able to see “Genre” rather than “Ge…” and “Proofer 1” instead of “Pro…”

Thanks in advance!

Kate

Please add a wrap text function that emulates the 20-year-old feature in excel. This is not rocket science. It will make your product much more attractive, and more likely to maintain users such as myself.

It makes me very curious that this is something Airtable has ignored for 4 years (there’s another post on the same subject from September 2016).

I understand blocks, automations get priority, but this can’t be that difficult to implement, can it?

This is definitely a turn-off when I’m trying to bring people from Excel/Sheets into Airtable.

Dear Santa, let’s make the developers hear us and add word wrap to headers, cells and lookup data selection!

Desperately need this too. I have currency fields with long headers. I have to download into Excel to wrap the headers just to get a handle on my data.

Given how airtable ignores these massive threads of logical requests I’m not sure this will help but, yes this is needed, airtable is used often as a replacement to sheets or excel, both of which let your wrap text, this is very important for the headers so you can get more info on the screen

Yes please do this. AT is not simple to navigate the columns and this is the solution!

+1 This is one of the things that makes Airtable hard to pitch to teams. Not being able to wrap headers just makes the whole UI way more visually unattractive than it needs to be.

yes please make this happen.

Everyone needs to email support@airtable.com about this. They don’t read our posts here, and they need to hear from us regarding this important issue.
