How to wrap text in Google Sheets

  After adding all the data to our spreadsheets, what we need to do is adjust the text, in this case in Google Sheets.  It is natural that while we add information, we do not have enough time to coordinate each cell.  But don't worry, we can save this for last and fix it in a simple way.

  This is thanks to the fact that Google Sheets allows us to modify text in spreadsheets the way we want, something we can also do in Microsoft Excel.  If we want cell dimensions to be respected, no matter how much text, override them, create new lines of text, etc.  Basically, what seems appropriate and appropriate for the work we do.

  In this submenu we will have to choose Adjust so that we can adjust the text and cell height automatically.


  We can also choose the Override option so that the text flows to the next cell.  Although it may make reading the table more difficult.


  For the "Crop" option, it visually clips the text to fit the current cell size.  Then we can click on the cell to see all the content.
