Can't see your images yet, but sounds a lot like this one: IDEA: Word wrap column headers

Yeah, I saw that, but this isn't the same thing.  I'm referring to a side effect of sticking a report into a dashboard reportlet. The metric columns wrap the text correctly in the report itself, but they don't wrap and are cut off when put into the reportlet.

Right, then it's part of this one - Totally agree it's real pain: IDEA: Add Reports to DB's as defined by Users

You'll notice that the new dashboard reportlets have much clearer metric headers. I think that solves this problem.

Really? I have an outstanding incident that says the headers are in fact worse in 14.7 dashboards than 14.6

James - can you post some more details here so that we know exactly what bothers you about the new format?

Request:

      Word wrap column headers in dashboard reports.

 

Current functionality:

      The column headers showing the tracked value can be truncated.

 

Business impact:

      If you have multiple items in a trended report the values being reported on can be unintelligible, making the reportlet useless. There appears to be no work around.

The older postings show this as implemented in pre-14.7 versions of the dashboards. It is apparently not imiplemented in the current version of the dashboards. See the screen shot above.
