    Yes! multi-line text fields in a lot of my lists end up having extra carriage returns in them which then creates a ton of whitespace with tall rows eating up the available screen.

    Either allowing the user to pick the row height for the list view or list webpart or allow the list creator to set the default row-height on the column when they create the column.

    Hi everyone, I’m happy to announce that the ability to add indexes to lists of any size is available to SharePoint Online customers as of March 2018. You can now go to “Indexed columns” in List or Library Settings page, and add indexes even if your list has more than 5,000 items. For up to 20,000 items, the indexing should be near instantaneous. For lists with more than 20,000 items, indexing will use a background process and may take some time, usually minutes, but possibly longer if there are a lot of items and if SharePoint is busy serving other requests. Similarly, you are also able to remove indexes that you no longer need.

    We are continuing to work on making larger lists work better, so we will keep this item open. Please don’t hesitate to send feedback if you are running into issues while managing your large lists, and…

    This! This! My God This!

    Embedding a list webpart on a modern page is extremely useful... but if your list has many columns and many rows it is a pain to scroll it left/right to see those columns that are off the screen. Many users miss that you have to get to the bottom of the webpart before you can scroll left/right... and at that point you don't have the column headers anymore to know what columns are now in view.

    Please do something to improve this.

    We are continuing to make our large list experiences better, please keep the feedback coming.

    Spring 2018 update:
    - We now support being able to manually add indexes to lists of any size (increased from lists up to 20,000 items previously).
    - Starting with the February release of the Office 365 Excel client, you will be able to export your full list instead of getting cut off part of the way through.

    What we are working on now:
    - Predictive indexing will start to work for lists larger than 20,000 items so your views will automatically cause the right indexes to be added to your lists.

    In our backlog:
    - Being able to index/sort/filter by lookup column types (like person, lookup or managed metadata columns) without being throttled.
    - Making sure that our REST APIs support querying in ways that will guarantee that the call will not be throttled.

    For…
