My widget is playing content bigger that the placeholder. Why?

Content is being cut off because the widget is showing wider than the placeholder.  I can't see where it might be corrected.  Can you identify what is wrong?  Thanks.

Dick,

I'm going to need some more information on this. What widget is causing this problem? Do you have a presentation preview URL that I can take a look at as an example?

Hey Blake -

I have gone in a reformatted the spreadsheet according to my understanding of the parameters and the content continues to exceed the width of the placeholder.  included in this note is the URL for another presentation I am playing with.

Please take a look and tell me what I might be doing wrong.  Thanks.

Dick,

I've taken a quick look at your presentation. It looks like your font size, combined with the amount of data in the spreadsheet will not fit in the placeholder that you have built. I've reduced the font size and verified in preview that it works.

Let me know what you think.

Blake -

I cannot see where you did what you said you did. 1st link or 2nd link I sent you?

Also, shouldn't the placeholder take into account what I have chosen without losing its mind?  The space is finite.  It should automatically wrap, right?

Thanks.  I'll keep looking to see what you changed.

OK, I found it.  You set it to 18 - too small!  The font was what is was (30) so people can read it from 15-20 feet away.  The widget should take my choices into account and wrap the content. I mean, at some point it does this, but why at 18 and not at 30?

Dick,

I understand completely. I'm going to look further into this and log a bug if needed.

please do - thanks.  See if you can put back the versatility that we had with the old spreadsheet.
