MS Project 2010: Text Column expanding randomly RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Sometimes the columns of the text pane increased ad infinitum, not possible to see something. I cannot decrease them or view their content as if I try to change their format or change of table. the only way I find was to close MS project to find back a normal format of column.

    I work with MS Project2010 Version 14.0.6123.5001 32bits with a system Windows 7 Entreprise SP1

    Thanks for your answer.

  • Some text fields related fixes are done in Dec hotfix, refer - and as I suggested in your other thread try to save plan in XML and reopen that will fix if there are any file bloating or corruption which is leading to this.

  • You could check the column to see if text wrapping is turned on.  Identify the view you are in (ex: Gantt View) then identify the table (ex: Entry).  From the menu go to View > Tables > More Tables then Edit the table you are working on.  Make sure the column is set to Text Wrapping > "Yes".
