[APPROVED] Wrap Cells & expand Column option in Table View

I know we have some table updates with the “batch editing” coming up, very glad to hear about that! On the subject of tables, I wanted to suggest the option to “wrap” the table view.

This is a big piece of Notion that I’ve always found very useful.

It’s very useful if you want to see your related entities as a small “list” in a table. With Fibery’s sophisticated many-to-one, many-to-many, and one-to-one visuals, this would really give Tables a leg up. Notion can’t benefit here as all the related items are the same. So I think if you gave this extra capability of tables the table view is even more powerful.

Coda takes it a step further and let’s you adjust how Columns render:

which would be a great option as well.

Thanks!

The ability to wrap text, but also be able to wrap column headers is an awesome feature of coda.

I’m currently evaluating moving from coda to fibery so getting these little details right on tables matters a a lot!

Tables imho are extremely important to get right given that’s what many of us are used to, be it excel or google sheets.

Many other coda things like being able to arrow key tab through multiple images (eg like a gallery view) attached to a cell would be great.

Hey, thanks for the support. I posted a related item about wrapping here - feel free to add any thoughts and perhaps we can get some good feedback to the team collectively about improvements around Wrapping!

We’ll definitely consider this feature for Table View improvements.

+1 - has been on my list for a while. Entety listings in table view would profit much of this.
Also the big question of "can and will we see Richt-Text-fields within the table view (or board-view) and if so: how (with small scroll-bars?)

Chris, yes excellent on the “small scroll bars”!

As I used Notion, I noticed you can actually see inside a page in their gallery view, but there is no scroll bar to see the entire contents! I made a suggestion to them, see below to illustrate.

So I agree 100%, this could be a good way to get this done in Fibery!
