We have considered this, but when the lines are of different heights, the whole board looks cluttered and the hierarchy becomes less visual. So we implemented issue details panel instead, where you can quickly see all the issue details: https://wiki.almworks.com/x/s4QlAQ
I hope this helps.

This is unfortunate. While I understand the consideration related to the the visual aspects of the hierarchy, ultimately the interface is focused on utility, and cutting off text in critical fields drastically reduces this utility. The visual aspects of the hierarchy can be improved via secondary visual clues (underlying parent rows - not the text but via a solid bar, changing text attributes, etc.), while preserving text wrapping. If MS Project can wrap text and preserve the visual hierarchy, then I'm sure you could find a way as well. The issue details panel has very limited usability in our use case - noting that the same wrapping issue exists in the dashboard and issue views, where there is no details option.
Ultimately, it is arguably prudent to let your customers select the best viewing experience for them, and for us, we would strongly prefer the ability to see certain fields wrap.
