Wrap contents of a Cell when contents exceed the width of column

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

Currently if the content of a cell exceeds the width of the column, only way we can view is opening the cell or expanding the width of the column. This isn’t viable in all cases(when we have lots of columns )

Describe the solution you’d like

To enable a toggle in Set settings. When enabled, the contents of the cell will be wrapped within the width of the column and all info is visible to us.

Describe alternatives you’ve considered

Only alternatives are to increase the width of the column. The problem is we need to keep scrolling to the right to see other columns

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

When looking at objects in a set, I often need to look at (multiple lines of) their descriptions.

[Clicking on the text relation box](https://i.imgur.com/7arhteB.png) works, but is quite inefficient — especially when I need to read multiple text relations at once.

Describe the solution you’d like

It would be very ideal to have an “Expand” option that allows the text relation box’s height to be dragged and fixed — so it stays as such even when the user clicks off of the box.

Sorry, very poorly explained ^^

Describe alternatives you’ve considered

Individually clicking on each box, then clicking to another.

Thank you, hope you have an amazing day! :slightly_smiling_face:

Sounds like word wrap for grid cells?: https://community.anytype.io/t/-/2122

basically, anyone who has used notion for a while knows this feature

just basically the option to wrap cells

something that could make this better than notion is being able to wrap particular relations n keep the rest unwrapped kinda thing


If you’ll see the above image, i mean to say that i would like the lecturer relation to wrap but not the link relation
