Adjusting Column Widths

howto

#1

I like how we can select the properties and the measures that we want but why can’t we adjust the widths of the columns?

Hi @TravisA,
Great idea, I too would like to see this implemented, in some cases the dimension text can be quite long (on our part names especially), having the ability to reduce the column width rather than truncating the text in the designer would be a great addition.

Regards,

Jon

Hi @TravisA, I’ve logged your suggestion in our system.

@JonKemp you can set the property to be a paragraph type which will automatically truncate the text to 100 characters. You can then click on the hyperlink to show the full amount of text.

Hi @will.marriott

Thanks, this cannot be done on dimensions, unfortunately we have one dimension on part name which would still remain. I am implementing this on the properties.

Thanks,

Jon
