I am using SharePoint Online and have a custom list in the Modern Experience that has long titles for a few columns. With no luck I have been searching for a solution to have Word-Wraping on the title fields.

I have looked into JSON formatting and so far all of the articles talk about the data fields and not the title headers.

If this was the old SharePoint, I would write CSS in a CEWP and it would be a done deal, but this doesn't appear to be an option anymore in the Modern Experience.

Any tips or solutions to getting long title names in a custom list on SharePoint Online (Modern Experience) to do a Word-Wrap?


You can check the official document below, there is not a method to substring the text.

Use column formatting to customize SharePoint

As a workaround, we can use the JSON formatting below.

  "$schema": "https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/sp/column-formatting.schema.json",
  "elmType": "div",
  "txtContent": "@currentField"
