Jira Issue CArds

How do i get the text to wrap on teh jira card? ie i want to add description with teh full narrative or the Acceptance Criteria fields and currently it just cuts off the text from the card.

The Text can't wrap for fields added to cards as there is a restriction on the overall size of the card. If the card had no size restrictions then the card layout on the boards would become very difficult and inefficient when a card has lots of text. 

The idea with cards is a user selects them to open the "Details View" to see the additional information they require
