Sheets - Wrapping text, moving columns, and disappearing rows

From older posts it seems that text wrapping in sheet cells isn’t possible, but double-checking it’s not something that was updated in a later version — dont see any setting for that though.

Also, often I add multiple empty rows so I can just jump to the next one, but I find that they disappear, esp. when I go back and forth between the different table views. (but also I think they disappeared when I edited columns and went back to my table and they were gone)… then I have add them all over again. Is this the intended behavior?

Is there a way to automatically add a blank row when at the end of the table? Hitting return takes me back to the top of the table.

Also, my columns often move around when I drag them to position, but when moved within the column editor, they seem to stay put. However, the width of the columns seem to have a mind of their own after my adjustments.



Saving doesn’t preserve empty rows.

The next release will fix this and pressing return will append a row again.

thanks… any idea about wrapping text? not possible? will it be one day possible? it’s just hard to read unless i switch views.

It’s not yet possible but planned for future releases. In the meantime a good alternative is IMHO to use the form view instead of the table view for sheets.

I’m having same buggy problems with sheets. Will try the form view but table view is pretty much unusable and broken. Hope to see a fix soon.

As Dr. Sagen famously said something like–extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. I am sure others, esp. DEVON Technologies people, would like to have some specifics about the problems–what you see vs. what you expect), screen shots, etc.

I made a new sheet to test the new 3.8 version. Everything romebot said above describes my experience, including columns and records disappearing just as I enter them, plus empty rows also disappear. This is all in Table View … haven’t tested Form View much but may be more stable. I was entering rich text and plain text set values.

A screen recording would be great, thanks.
