Own Jira Dashboard - is possible to set the "Summary" column (or any column) width ?

I have my custom JIRA dashboard where various filters display jiras.

Usually, JIRA summary is a bit longer (one sentence) so then dashboard view displays too height rows due the text quantity in the column Summary.


What I want to:

To set up each column width / or text font size - is it possible?

Hi Martin,

I don't think this is possible without customisation.

There's a pretty good answer here: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/39554999, which still stands as far as I know.

I mostly use the single column layout for dashboards with filter results showing issues with long summaries, and keep number of other columns to a minimum. I think I've found layouts look nicer (to me anyway) if I make the summary column the last.

Probably not the answer you wanted, but I hope it's helpful at least.

Someone might step in if they know a good solution.
