Text Wrapping

Have just begun to create a simple spreadsheet. I created a few simple headings then went back and altered one which became longer than the width of the column. The wrap text alignment appears correct as "off" since the text did not wrap. However I found that I could not auto-expand the column width as expected until I first turned on text wrapping and turned it off again. This is not the first occasion on which I have had to do this - it was necessary in 5.4.1.2 as well as the new 5.4.2.2 release. While I can live with the need to do this I cannot give my students a logical reason for the behaviour.

I don't know a feature/functionality "auto-expand".
In what way did you try to trigger the "auto-expand"? Do you mean to set the option 'Optimal Width..." for the column? If so: This will also make columns narrower if applicable.

Cannot reproduce. I entered headings which were longer than the cells and then double-clicked on the column divider to autosize the column. Everything worked correctly without turning on text wrapping. Please provide more details to reproduce the problem, or a link to an example document. Tested with 5.4.0.3 on Windows.
