How to wrap text/cells in Notions

You've most likely seen before how tables sometimes can't fit the whole text in the sight of a cell and how they show a few words, then add some dots.

We're here to help you get rid of that issue when building tables in Notion.

By the end of the guide, all of the words in each cell of your tables will be perfectly visible.

Why wrap text in Notion?

People often wrap the text in cells so that we can easily read the whole content without having to click on the cell in order to see it all.

Now, in the lower side of the table, you can see the "Wrap cells" section.

If your text looks like the first row of the first column's text in the table above, then your "Wrap cells" button has to be grey (turned off).
