        The New Matrix takes away the previously available ability to set all Matrix columns to a standard width. Now, you can set each column heading to a width that will track that column's location...but with 5000 different potential columns...clearly that's not a workable solution.

        The idea of having 5000 potential columns is NOT an edge case...it's an important use case of the Matrix visual. (Think distributors with many customers to display side by side...or products side by side...etc. The list goes on and on). So clearly removing the ability to set widths was ill-considered imo. Please restore this capability.

          The column resizing is really not working. Here is a video of conversion of an old matrix with columns sized properly (auto size off) to a new Matrix. I originally sent it to Enos1978 so ignore that I'm talking to "Seth"...he suggested I post it here. This is to in a drop box folder and is an .mp4 made using Snagit. It does tell the tale without much ambiguity. Any Microsoft comments on this? Is there some other place to post?

            This is especially true since sliding the column adjusters do not "stick" with the new matrix visuals.

                  This really is useful and won't get the votes because it is a seemingly simple tweak versus a huge new feature. That said it is a significant visual enhancer AND the effort to complete would be small...

                    Here here!! I have 600+ measures in my staging model and it's very difficult to debug at this point.
