If I enter a long string into a cell it (the string) is normally displayed in its whole, taking a part of the next cell area. Line A (1) on the picture below is an example.

If I enter a long string into a cell it (the string) is truncated and a red triangle is placed into the cell to indicate this if the next cell contains any data. Line B (2) on the picture below is an example.

I would like to turn off this behaviour (truncation) to acheive the effect illustrated by the line C (3) of the picture (I've produced it with a graphics editor now). Is this possible? If yes, how?

I ended up deleting the cell contents by selecting it and then right click 'delete contents'. I then re-pasted the content back in and it no longer truncated.

Right click on the cell and select Clear direct formatting.
