Is there a way to set up multi-line column headers? Long column names are not visually appealing in one line. Also they cause a lot of horizontal empty space in the rows.
Currently not. And multi-line is not supported on rows either (#6178).
As a work-around I tend to write a very abbreviated column name and then use the question description to write full context. I know that might not work for everybody, but it’s an easy hack.
Is it possible to have multi lines in question description?
\n is not working.
@King_Edward No I usually use
# as separator, so something like this.
pxNom=Patient Name ### pxCod=Patient Code (this is usually in Spanish, just translated for example)
@King_Edward Hmm…it looks like it was meant to be multi-line, but only the input accepts multi-line, but it’s displayed as single-line in the tooltip.
Do you want to open a new issue on that?
Sure. I’ll do.
I’ll also make a feature request to show column description (as a tooltip) on mouse hover on column headers. I think this will be very handy. This issue is kind of related.
@King_Edward The #1174 issue you referenced actually already works like that (see image below). My problem is that I need to show some tables on a dashboard, where I don’t have the option to resize the column size, so that’s why I use abbreviated names.
I think that is for column names, not column descriptions.
And the tooltip appears only if the column name is not fully visible.
So I suggest: A toolip always be shown on hovering over column names (with some delay maybe), and it include column name and column description.
Just for reference:
