Wrap icon text in plasma dashboard

After acquiring a new laptop, I would really like to use plasma's dashboard to make use of the whole screen. My only small issue is that text doesn't wrap, cutting most programs names. I found that the option to wrap it exists (see link), but not how to enable it.

Long app names and filenames in the Application Dashboard [now wrap onto a second line when necessary

Seems to be a case where it is actually necessary though:

Strange but true I guess?
https://phabricator.kde.org/D13122 (here is an explanation of this change and expected behavior. It was applied since 5.14 and indeed automatic) Maybe it has trouble with multi-language support?

But then there is this post too

i can reproduce it on my end too, but since i don't use Application Dashboard i never investigated/looked into it
