Columns only show one value for multi-value fields #4569
For fields that can have multi-values (like categories or tags) the views in the CMS just show the first entry. This makes it seem like a bug.
This causes my clients to get confused, thinking they just selected one item. They then edit the item and check to see if something is missed. You can't scan a view and see all the values checked.
These should at least show up as a perhaps a CSV list of values. Or if the issue is showing all of the values, you can at least show the first X amount or show and put some ....s to truncate it and indicate that there are more. If this is a setting, it could at least be a setting at the field level to indicate how many entries you want to show in the view.
In any case, the current model feels like mistake and as a result I need to hide columns from the client for multi-value fields.
Curiously, multi-value checkboxes do show up right. But definitely Categories and Tags do not.
Steps to reproduce
This is an issue both in Craft 2.x and Craft 3.x
