Change the wording of "This cell has truncated Characters"

Hi 

 

The wording of the tool tip displayed in results window cells with long strings is misleading.  The current wording is "This cell has truncated characters".

New users tend to infer that this means that the data value has been truncated somewhere upstream.  See here, here and here.   Changing this message to something like "Only a portion of long strings is displayed" will help reduce the confusion immensely.

Agreed.  you could make it a similar message to when the decimal places are not all shown in the results window.

Agreed @danilang. It's confusing to see this message.
