Report text not wrapping


I have a report where the text is not wrapping even though it is wrapped in the underlying sheet. Actually, the report used to be text wrapped initially, but all of a sudden it's stopped wrapping for no apparent reason.

    Is it no longer wrapped in only the Smartsheet report? Have you evaluated the appearance in a PDF or a Smartsheet Dashboard?

    Have you tried unwrapping the column in the sheet and reapplying Wrap?

    Also, there was a similar inquiry recently. Perhaps this post will provide some assistance -

    Thanks Jen.

    There were a number of sheets linked together and sure enough, one of them had the text wrapping turned off. I turned it back on and it fixed it on the report.

    This flow-through formatting in reports from the underlying sheets is pretty annoying. We should be able to format the data in a report independently from the underlying sheet. That would save a lot of grief.

    Oh good. I'm glad I was able to help, Don. I agree with you about the formatting mechanisms in sheets, reports and dashboards. I think that's a great enhancement idea.
