#20 MSD(s) of cell content value hidden in view


With the default column width, if a cell's value is not completely visible, the most significant digit(s) are not shown making values glanced at seem smaller than they are e.g. 110.0000 appears as 10.0000

    In Excel, values that are too wide get replaced with ####. In Apple Numbers, too narrow cells get a "+" icon superimposed in the bottom RHS of the cell. We need to come up with an innovative way to draw user attention to all too narrow cells.

    Also, double clicking in the column label header which in (all?) spreadsheets makes the column wide enough for the widest row is making the column even narrower in SalStat.
