I seem to remember that whenever I typed in a description in the Caption field in the Metadata Panel, the description was always visible whenever I click on the image in Library Mode regardless of the length of the description. Now for some reason, I now notice that the words in the description are cut off unless I click on the Caption field. Can the Caption field be expanded in the Default mode? Thank you.

I did not know about this behaviour but LrC does it on my system as you described. When i type in more characters than fit in one line, the field is streched to a second line and so furher.
LrC 11.1 and Mac OS 11.6.2
