Saw this post from 3+ years ago, but I'm having this problem, too. Even on wide displays there seems to be no way to alter column width on list views. This is a big UI obstacle to making list views an adequate tool. Any fixes on the horizon?
p.s. it should be possible to set the view width and have the text of the field label in the column header wrap to fit. Otherwise a column is automatically wide if the label is long, even if you want the column itself to be narrow.
Are you using classic UI or NewUI?.
We recently added support for this feature in NewUI. When you set view width for a field that honored while rendering list view grid in NewUI. If no width set column header width decided based on column label text. But you should be able to resize your column by using column re-sizer option. you see this option when you mouse over column separator line. Once you resize the column it get saved as user preferences. From then column uses resized width. All these features available only in NewUI.
In Classic UI (OldUI) still view width has no effect.
Thanks, Vimal. I am using the classic UI, but my main need is to be able to control view widths for portal pages. If I switch to NewUI, will that also affect the way portal pages display?
