Visibility of Portfolio Editor column headers

Comments, critical feedback, praise, or suggestions for new features.

In the Portfolio Editor, the column headers are often truncated when we want to keep the columns tight. Having to enlarge a column to see its entire header is annoying. Changing the font header for something smaller doesn't give a great result (and in fact it remains unreadable).

Suggestion: tooltips for the headers, like in this software:

Generally you want to adjust the column depending on their content, not their header... And keep them as tight as possible to display more columns on screen.

The current behavior is also annoying because the "..." added to give the info that the column is not large enough to display the entire header take up some space in itself so reduces even more the header that is displayed :(

Another solution (other than the tooltips) for this problem would be to offer an option to display the headers on two lines. This would offer more flexibility to adjust the columns as desired with a display of the headers good enough in many cases, because the appearance of the "..." (with the place it takes in itself) would be then probably much less necessary.

I finally decided to enlarge the columns to display the header label completely and it is just... fine. In fact not a big deal if less columns are displayed on screen. And I will work on filling the larger columns with bigger figures on my accounts :lol:

So it's not really a request from me anymore.

Hi Mark,

I would like to request the original enhancement that started this thread, which would be very useful to those of us that have a lot of columns in our Portfolio Editor view.

Thanks,
