Can I wrap text inside cells?

By default, new grid views display rows at a fixed height of a single line. However, by expanding the row height a field containing text will wrap to the next line.

The shorter row heights allow you to see more records at once, whereas the larger row heights allow you to see more information per each record. Specifically, larger row heights will show multiple lines of text in text fields, multiple lines of linked records, multiple lines of multiple select field options, multiple lines of collaborators in collaborator fields, and larger images.

To expand a single row at a time, you can press space with any cell in the row selected.

You can also expand an individual text cell by clicking the expand button inside the cell, or by pressing Shift Space with an individual cell selected. You can then use the arrow keys to quickly move around between different cells.

Finally, our gallery view offers a card-based layout which supports multi-line text fields.
