This question already has an answer here:
I am working on a Team site inside SharePoint server 2013. And on the list views I am showing the Description field, which is of type enhanced rich text. Currently we are facing these problems:-
If users add long text inside the Description field the whole list view will became not very user friendly.
On small sized screens the Description field will expand vertically instead of horizontally , also causing the whole list view to be out of layout.
So can anyone advice, on how to find a solution. I was thinking if this is possible or not:-
- To force the Description field to show only the first n characters (let say the first 200 characters) and without any images when it is being displayed inside the lists’ views. And if the user click on the list item or edit the item then the full Description will be shown? I am using an on-primise deployment so I have full control over the farm
