Fix the broken 'See More' link with Multiple Lines of Text Column
It should be an option to truncate vs. untruncate content in a Multiple Lines of Text column & until a couple weeks ago it was! There is currently a link called 'show more' / 'show less' (located at the bottom of the Multiple Lines of Text field when viewing the list form) but it no longer works!!! The link does absolutely nothing now. PLEASE FIX IT!! It used to work to truncate/untruncate before the recent MS update... but now these links do nothing. I don't understand why MS would change the functionality to untruncate everything AND choose to keep the link there that says 'show less'... when the link clearly no longer works. It's misleading to users (to say the least!) to have a link there that does absolutely nothing. If MS wants to default now to showing everything (that's annoying) but then at least allow the 'show less' link to actually do what it says - show less.
I just talked to Microsoft (I opened a ticket for this issue). The told me they didn't know this was an issue and that they could not recreate it on their end. They don't seem to know this is affecting multiple users (they suggested it might just be my tenant). I did a screen share with them to show them the issue and they took logs of data while I demo-ed the issue. They'll get back to me after they do more research. If you're having this issue I strongly recommend you open a ticket with Microsoft to help them understand this is affecting more than just my tenant.

I hope this gets fixed quickly.
