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

One more vote from me on this feature. It’s time consuming to have to hover over the field header to see the whole name, and it would make more efficient use of screen real estate to adjust column to the width of the actual data below

I can’t believe we can’t made the header row into more than one row. This is pretty bad imho. Lots of documents need this type of format. GG.

Hi, I’m a new user and one of the first things I looked for in setting up my Tables was a way to wrap the Field Name. I find it odd and frustrating that Airtable hasn’t implemented this feature yet; especially considering that Records content automatically wraps when the column is narrow. Airtable, please add this functionality to your software.

This would make much more efficient use of screen real estate, as column widths currently have to be so wide for the full column heading to be visible. There is so much negative space in Airtable vs Google Sheets that there is already so much more scrolling that is necessary to view table content.

+1 for being able to wrap the headers. It does seem like a small thing that could make a HUGE difference.

Another vote to please add text wrapping in the header field! It really wastes much time and throws a lot of speed bumps into workflow to have to dig into each individual header each time, especially when working with complicated financial and sales reports.

+1 from me. This is the biggest challenge in AirTable. I’ve created multiple views as the columns take up so much width.
