I have a table that displays about 10-12 columns of data and can be very cumbersome. Some columns are quite wide and the display doesn't look all that great. After doing some research, I found articles like this In a grid, how to display long column headers, which are helpful but more focused on column headers.
What I want to know is whether or not there's a big difference between these two options in terms of a good user experience:
- Wrapping long lines (worst case scenario two lines max)
- Truncating long lines (...) to consistently display one line for each row in the table
