Data tables truncating long strings of text

I'm creating a form that needs to display multiple lines of data from with the form itself. I tried to use the gallery to display the info but the data wouldn't show up. I tried to use the data table to show the information instead and it works, almost. The new issue that I'm having is that when I try to show the data from a multiple lines of text from sharepoint, the column gets truncated with an ellipsis (...).  Is there a way around this? I want the user to be able to see all of the information in this column.

@RezaDorrani Cool, so there's basically nothing I can do. At least I have the hope that they'll add word wrap in the future. Thanks!

You can use a flexible height gallery instead, and make it look like a data table

Just a little more work 🙂

@RezaDorrani I tried that before but gave it another shot. This time I used a Collection instead of Sharepoint Connection and the data showed up in the gallery. Thanks for the help again!
