Summary

Overwritten characters in Table View

Description of the issue

This is about how the computer shows data in table view.  When I have a field with only letters, and the column is not as wide as the contents of the field, table view shows the first few letters -- whatever the column on the screen has room for.  However, I also have a field with a lot of special symbols in it -- such as, 1|3%æ4◊`£`±`.  In this field, when the column is not wide enough to show all the characters, the characters get overwritten on each other.   Why is that?   Can that be stopped?  Sometimes, I want to reduce the column width, but I would still like to see the first characters as they really are.
