Although not relevant to the original poster's situation, I would
like to see a columns tab under the table dialogue that lists the
column widths where you can type in the width of each column.
It's there: Table | Table Properties... | Columns | Column width (or
right-click | Table... | Columns | Column width). (Yes: you can type
in those boxes.)
I frequently have to tweak tables by stealing width from one column
to give to another spaced a number of columns away and without
changing table width or other column widths. It is quite cumbersome
at present. Possibly I am manipulating columns incorrectly and this
can already be achieved easily enough.
I suspect it can. I think it is easier if you change column widths
from left to right, as consequential changes work that way too. If -
as you say - you need make compensatory changes to columns spaced a
number of columns apart, one trick would be temporarily to tick "Adapt
table width": that way, no consequential changes occur and you can go
straight to the distant column and change that. You can remove the
tick from "Adapt table width" afterwards if desired, of course.
Thanks Brian. I will give that a go.
I trust this helps.
