Constrain column view to one line

  • Constrain column view to one line Lance Roberts

    I have a task list that has a single-line text column, a Status column and a Modified By column (among others).

    It appears that the default view has the single-line text column taking up all the room it can, making the status and modified by column go to 2-line formatting. I'd like to force the Status and Modified By columns to display on only one line, and let the single-line text go to 2-lines if it needs to.

    How would I go about getting the single-line text column to lose priority for space?

    EDIT: I did the cheap fix of making the column names larger, but would like a better solution (I used underscores).

From another work flow I update the task 'status' from 'completed' to 'not started'. The status gets updated but after the task is completed the second time the status is not updated from 'not started' to 'completed'.
