if I have a table with 4 column how can I get for example the first
column width of 2cm the second and third of 3cm and the fourth of
4cm?? giving numbers not with mouse??
I tried: rightclick > table... >tab table and i tried both selecting
automatic and left alignment
"Automatic" won't help you: this adjusts the table to fill the space
between the margins, so any change of column width has to be accompanied
by a compensating one to achieve this. Any other option here should
rightclick > table... >tab columns inserting values in the column
width spaces but writer also don't honour this because I suspect it
maintain the global length of table
I also selected "adjust column proportionally" but nothing change, and
also selecting "adjust column proportionally" "adapt table width" is
I insert values in column width but writer doesn't obey to this
because change the other
It sounds as if you have tried everything except the precise option you
need - which appears to be having "Adapt table width" ticked but "Adjust
columns proportionally" *not* ticked. Note that the tick against "Adapt
table width" applies for the current operation only: if you go back to
adjust the widths later, you will have to tick that option again.
...yes, I tried everything but the one that solves...:-) how murphy low
teach...:-) :-) :-)
I trust this helps.
...but there is a reason for this....
click on the help I have:
"Adapt table width
Maintains the current width of the table when you change the width of a
column. This option is not available if Automatic is selected in the
Alignment area on the Table tab."
...I'm not english mothertongue but it definetly seems that it is the
only option I don't need...:-) :-) ..
many thanks, :-) ciao :-) pier
is there somebody to ask to correct in a better way this help??
may be like:
"if not checked Maintains the current width of the table when you change
the width of a column. This option is not available if Automatic is
selected in the Alignment area on the Table tab."
