Rev's implementation of HTML does not actually support HTML tables, so
if that is what you are trying to import, I expect that you will get
weird results. However on the issue of cropping or not, I have found
that in normal fields (not set to table as I never use that) if you
have the vgrid showing, items will be cropped, but if the vgrid is
off, items will bleed into the next column.

I prefer to search using Nabble
