Width of cell in Excel


kevin meyers
 

 

Hello, I’m using most recent versions of windows10 and Jaws2020. I’m also using Office 2016. I want to change the width of a cell. When I got to the spot to change the width it said it was 8.11. Is that the number of characters that can fit in the cell?

Then to change the width of a entire column, I would have to highlight the column and then make the size of the cell wider. Cheers, Kevin


Richard Turner
 

Well, it seems to be less obvious these days.

I’ll post a link to a Microsoft support page below, but one way to get there is to press alt+q, type cell width, arrow down to cell width and hit enter.

 

Maybe there is a more direct way.

 

Here is the page I got from searching the web:

For automatic row height adjustment, it’s alt h then o then a.

To manually adjust row height, it’s alt h then o then h.

For automatic column width, it’s alt h then o then i.

To manually adjust column width, it’s alt h then o then w.

 

My Jaws versions of 2018 and 2019 don’t always respond to these commands so I press alt h then tab to cells format then press enter, and I can choose between row height, column width,etc with the up and down arrows. Or sometimes I’ll restart Jaws, but that doesn’t always help either.

 

Hope that helps.

Thank you Zel,

Even though I didn’t ask the question, I will use these a lot.

I thought it was something like that.

Often if the screen is restored, not maximized, the commands don't work as advertised.

At 02:38 PM 9/22/2020, you wrote:

I think that what Kevin is asking is how many characters will fit in a standard cell at the default width?

Subject: Width of cell in Excel





Hello, I'm using most recent versions of windows10 and Jaws2020. I'm also using Office 2016. I want to change the width of a cell. When I got to the spot to change the width it said it was 8.11. Is that the number of characters that can fit in the cell?

Then to change the width of a entire column, I would have to highlight the column and then make the size of the cell wider. Cheers, Kevin

The default width for a cell is 8.11 characters. if there is more text, it spills over to the right into the next cell(s). There is a JAWS setting, cell text visibility I think, that when checked will alert when the text goes into additional space. Alt+h, o, w will tell you how wide a cell is, and allow you to change the width.

My Jaws versions of 2018 and 2019 don't

If you need a wider cell in a spreadsheet an option is to merge cells and you don't have to worry about word wrap. Generally I have found that if you are using the default cells across a row, you can get eight cells in portrate mode on an 8.5 by 11 inch sheet of paper.

Brian,



How much text will fit in a cell depends on the width of the column in which the cell resides. I don't believe Excel allows setting the width of individual cells. How text which takes more space than the width of its column appears will depend on what the cell to its immediate right has in it. If that cell is blank, the too wide text will spill over and display in the adjacent cell. If the adjacent cell is not blank, the too wide text will be cut off and not displayed even though it is still in the cell.



You can change the format of individual cells to set them to wrap text when the text they contain is too wide to fit in the width of their column. This will cause the row they are in to expand in height in order to display the wrapped text. To do this, place focus in the cell you wish to have the text wrapped or select an entire column or a group of cells for which you want to wrap text and then:



1. Press ctrl + 1 to open the format dialog box.

2. Press ctrl + tab to move to the alignment tab in the format dialog box.

3. Press tab until you reach the wrap text checkbox and press space to check it.

4. Press tab until you reach the Ok button and press enter.

If the column is selected, alt-h-o-i will adjust to the widest cell; if not, it will adjust the width to that of the current cell, whether or not there are larger cells.

Thank you for this. I keep a running average of glucose readings in excel. Occasionally I want to make comments and am using the column to the right of the statistics for this.
The regular comments feature in excel is not visible to jaws and this is a known problem according to Freedom Scientific.
All the best, Brian

My Jaws versions of 2018 and 2019 don't always respond to these commands so I press alt h then tab to cells format then press enter, and I can choose between row height, column width,etc with the up and down arrows. Or sometimes I'll restart Jaws, but that doesn't always help either.
Hope that helps.

Well, it seems to be less obvious these days.
I'll post a link to a Microsoft support page below, but one way to get there is to press alt+q, type cell width, arrow down to cell width and hit enter.
Maybe there is a more direct way.
Here is the page I got from searching the web:

Subject: Width of cell in Excel
Hello, I'm using most recent versions of windows10 and Jaws2020. I'm also using Office 2016. I want to change the width of a cell. When I got to the spot to change the width it said it was 8.11. Is that the number of characters that can fit in the cell?
Then to change the width of a entire column, I would have to
highlight the column and then make the size of the cell wider.
Cheers, Kevin
