Text ellipsis and white-space no-wrap

It would be great if you could add white-space property and text-overflow for text CSS.

I currently can add this with custom code, but the problem is that this is only reflected after I publish the site. It get's tricky with tables etc.

I think now that you added the CMS it's even more needed to make sure that too long labels look good.

    Good news! White-space is now supported in the typography options of the style panel. Check out our update for a closer look at what's new.

    It's confusing that this has the "Shipped" tag.

    It only pertains to the second point in this suggestion.
    Seeing the "Shipped" tag on this page you might think that "text-overflow: ellipsis" is now somehow natively supported in Webflow but it is NOT.

    Yeah! It would be super useful to have it. Right now it's a bit annoying

    I second that, also it would allow for horizontal scrolling containers !
