I'm currently using the spreadsheet program to create flashcards for my iPad. Some of the questions and answers are rather lengthy, and I would prefer it if the cells didn't expand to an enormous size just to show the everything I've written. Is there a way to just let the data run until the end of a standard sized cell, and only display the rest of the information in the equation box when I click on it?

Format>Cells...>Alignment and make sure "Wrap text automatically" is not checked.

Type ="" in adjacent cells
