    How to repeat the header on a matrix tool

    Asked by melanie.seehafer on January 21, 2015 at 10:07 AM

    I would like to use a matrix to collect data on reviewing over 100 items listed.


    When I created this matrix, because there are so many items listed on the left hand side, when you scroll down at a certain point you no longer see the header row and are not sure what category you are reviewing.


    Is there a way to repeat the header or show the header of a column as hover text in the fill in box as you scroll down the items listed on the left hand side of the matrix?  See my attached image.
