I know that I can double-click a column header with my mouse, but is there a keyboard shortcut to fit a column to the text width?

Alt + O, C, A one after the other.

    Ctrl + Spacebar first.

    If you don't have the correct cell selected you can select the whole row with Ctrl + Spacebar as snitzr mentioned.

Select all by pressing Ctrl+A. Then press Alt+H, O, I.

  • This answer is the better one now because it doesn't come with a warning that your shortcut is old, and it shows you where the new menu items actually are.
