I created the default tasks in Column View and the width stretched to fit content which is wider than my screen allows, changed the view to List View and the content width stayed the same, which is far too wide for List View
Hi @ian , thanks for joining Infinity community
The List View width is expanding according to Item width. The width of an Item depends on the content inside.
If you want to make List Item less wider, you should use Show/Hide option in the top right navigation, to turn of the attributes that are taking to much space, long text for example.
Can you paste the screenshot?
Hope this helped.
