If you use “Save and verify” instead of the normal “Save” after editing a table, the platform should adjust the width of your columns appropriately. But, sometimes the platform may not do what you want it to. For example, in the following example “Word” is a virtual column and, for whatever reason, “Save and verify” did not expand the width to accommodate the text in the column on the third row:
My solution was to add Japanese spaces to the title:
This produced the following:
You don’t need to be able to read Japanese to see that the text on the third row is now displayed comfortably.
I tried doing the same with ordinary spaces but to no avail.
This forum seems to be set up to convert Japanese spaces to English ones so I can’t share an example space here but you can find the unicode for Japanese spaces and text to copy here:
This is a temporary workaround, I fear. I hope AppSheet will give us more ways to control spacing in tables.
