Opened docs/tickets/44. Tried a solution lino.utils.textfields, but dropped it again and even removed the “expand_memos” attribute from Report and the “memos” button from Lino.GridPanel because I understood that the server-side approach was simply nonsense. Cropping must be done at the client.

And the solution is really simple: just added height:18px and overflow:hidden (and removed white-space: normal) to the cell’s style in lino.css:

.x-grid3-cell-inner, .x-grid3-hd-inner {
  /* white-space: normal; changed from nowrap */
  height:18px; overflow:hidden;
