Never knew that was possible until your question. Went to my Excel sheet and double-clicked to discover that what you said your could do for years I can do too! Never missed it, but it's sure there. I've been editing and changing cells widths for years without knowing what your question reveals to be possible.
As to "What gives?" well, what indeed.
Now, I'm on a Mac, loaded with the latest Excel 365 update....don't know if that could be a factor. But, frankly, I also have a hard time understanding why it's even an issue. You are still able to edit, right, by putting your cursor in a cell and then typing? And grabbing and dragging to set column width works? What gives?
