Description

Unlike previous behavior, in Geneva, columns in Excel exports are exported as a fixed width by default, and the text for each field wraps to the next line.

Steps to Reproduce

In a Fuji instance

  1. Open any list report.
  2. Export the report to Excel.

The column width automatically resizes.

In a Geneva instance

  1. Open any list report.
  2. Export the report to Excel.

The column width is fixed with text wrapping.

Workaround

To get the legacy behavior (non-wrapping text):

In releases before Helsinki Patch 9 and Istanbul patch 3, do one of the following:

  1.  - Open the file in Excel, select the column, and then select the format "do not wrap”, and manually change the size of the column so that text does not wrap. Or,
  2.  - Open the file in Excel, export the file in CSV format, and then open the file with Excel and save the file in xlsx format.

In Helsinki Patch 9 and Istanbul patch 3 and subsequent releases,

 - Turn the system property 'glide.export.excel.wrap_cells' to false
