Horizontal Scroll Bar on tables

score 1318

I often have large tables that exceed the width of the screen. While these are not for analysis/consumption, they are used as a staging point to create a new datasource. Sometimes I need to check the far right columns. I cannot do that.


Please could I have a scroll bar?
