It is time that something happens with truncation, the number one readability issue with Analysis Workspace.

My colleagues keep complaining about unreadable Workspace exports. Whenever using more than just a couple of columns in a table, the truncation of text that Adobe designers seem to love (but I hate) becomes problematic. Especially when sending them via PDF when a recipient can't hover over a cell to see what he is been missing.

As an example, see the product report attached some people get daily. It is hardly possible to read the first column. Now I can go into the Workspace and move all the columns to the right a bit so it is less painful, but that takes forever because I have to resize every single column manually, it looks shabby because I am not good enough to get them all to the same size. And when I change something in the table, the columns get resized to the way the were before...

So there needs to be some way around this:

1. an Option to show the full text at least in the dimension column(s) and make it multi-line or smaller or whatever, everything is better than this brutal truncation at  8 (?!) characters (and I have a huge screen, it gets worse on smaller ones).

2. a functionality that allows me to resize the dimension column and then all other columns get auto-resized accordingly.

3. whatever a smart frontend designer can think of is fine for me.

 This is my biggest issue with the product right now. For a news report, I need to be able to show headlines and related metrics, but all of the columns get distributed evently and the headlines get truncated.
