Possibility to choose to wrap text of column text (header but also the text in the datafields)
Need the ability to wrap the text in the column header or change the height of the header cell. We have some long column names in a list that is reported out weekly, and you can't read the headers without expanding their width a significant amount.

Is there any progress on this request. We need to wrap column titles in modern SP List experience. Thanks.

This appears also to be a duplicate of https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/39710920-add-an-option-to-truncate-show-all-by-default-mul and of https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/17272670-row-height-in-modern-list. Microsoft let's please fix this!

allow ability to wrap text in column headers and data cells.
Please add the option to wrap long column headers!
Please support this as some of the depts I support requested this feature knowing it existed in previous iterations of SP before we went to SPO.
Thank you for your hardwork!
Yes please give a choice to wrap the text! It defeats the purpose of creating views if all the content is not view-able.

We had to switch to a classic view for our header fields because classic displays headers more efficiently. Would live to have the ability to "word wrap" Header fields in lists.
Upvote! We'd like to use a list for FAQs. Column 1 = Question, Column 2=Answer. Lists make it easy to group FAQs by topic. But some of the answers and questions are long, and the text doesn't wrap.
We cheated a solution by inserting hard returns, but a programmatic solution would obviously be better.
We need to wrap the text in data fields
We have a list with many lines of text and its already rich text. I don't want normal visitors to see all columns of the table, just the contents of the large formatted text field... but each line is being truncated in the modern list view.

It would be nice to have a feature which will wrap the text for the type of data I am recording in SharePoint. Having this basic feature of text wrap same like Excel will help a lot.
I can change the looks of the datafields when I added below JSON to the Column Formatting of the column.

We definitely need to be able to wrap the text in the List Name column or edit the HTML on the page using something like the content editor web part.

I would like to wrap the Name column. I also have a Choice column where you can select multiple values. I would like these to appear as a list like my column where you can select multiple people.
