Any workaround? I guess I'm not sure why you are putting a TextCell inside a Grid. Why not just put the text itself in the Grid. Or put the text in a Pane, which gives you better control of wrapping. text = Style[StringJoin@Table["bla, ", {180}], FontFamily -> "Times", LineIndent -> 0]; graphics = Framed@Graphics[{}]; Grid[{{Pane[text, 300], graphics}}, Alignment -> Top] -- Helen Read University of Vermont
