Right now, the composer's attribute table doesn't take into account string cells that contains multiple lines (see attached screenshot). It would be very useful if it did.

Couple of scenarios that would benefit from this:
- Displaying a long description string by using the wordwrap() function in an expression-based column
- Displaying a string-based column that's meant to be a list (as with the attached screenshot, names of owners, which is broken down into multiple lines)
- etc.
