User stories summary dont fit in the planning board

The user stories are to long to fit into one line on the planning board, i have a 19" screen so not the smallest and the stories are actually not that long, but still they just cant fit horisontally. Is it somehow possible to make the issues on the planning board use more space vertically ?

Hi Jesper,

Couldn't you just use a title for the user stories summary and put the full userstory text in the description field?

You can see the description filed in the issue detail view on the right side of your planning board.

Best regards,


Hi Peter,

Thanks for the proposal, however our jira installation is not the fastest so it takes abour 10-15 seconds from when you click an item to the detail pane on the side shows the information, so if you have some 20 stories to go through its quite a frustrating progress. I was hoping there was some css magic that could resolve the issue :)

Kind regards

Jesper Lind
