Launched: Ability to expand cell for better writing

Hi! Yep - it’s ready now!

I really like this feature, especially for inserting lists into text columns. One buggy thing I noticed as I’ve been using this new feature, though, is that when I use Ctrl-Z within the expanded cell view, it undoes every change I have made since opening the expanded view. This is a minor thing, but would help make this feature a little more easy to use. Good work!

I too think this is a great feature.

My experience has been that, if I don’t click Done, and exit the window then I lose all my work.

I’d like to see the following:

  1. Changes were auto-saved (as there is already a Cancel Changes option), OR
  2. If auto-save isn’t possible, then a warning that changes are about to be lost

Oh God yes.

I can’t stress enough how important it is for a tool to feel robust.
I’m already paranoid of losing work after typing up half a page in a rich text cell and losing all my work after clicking away. However, this became a real issue after one of the other leads lost his work as well and now is complaining loudly to the rest of the team.

In this day and age people simply expect input to be remembered or safeguarded against loss, less so than changes and especially given the undo functionality.

Dear @Helena_Jaramillo,

There seems to be an issue with saving of the big text cell.

Would you mind to investigate and take the necessary actions
