Description mmtsuchi 2016-10-25 08:12:38 UTC
When editing a table,
when a data overflows the cell, you don't see the entire data, just the begining.

It should be more comfortable to see the entire data in the cell by inserting an automatic line return (Carrier Return).

It might be optional for globale table or just for opted fields.

This is an enhancement request - setting as such.
The table data entry mode which can be reached under "Tables" and double-clicking on a table has always been the less sophisticated and certainly less preferred data entry method for entering data in a ODB file. This is why there is a forms module, with a grid control, which allows for greater fine tuning of data entry.

I'm going to set this to new, but I don't know what appetite there is among the developer community for improving data entry in the table edit data entry mode.
