QuestionHow do I set the widths of a table column?
Answer

Use the {table plus} macro by pressing on the '{' key on your keyboard, and then typing the word table. You should then see the option appear in the drop down menu. Select it, and a dialog will appear (see example below)

Here are some examples of Column Attributes that you can use (percentage of table width or absolute width in pixels)

2 column table:

style="width:50%;",style="width:50%;"

style="width:150px;",style="width:400px;"

4 column table:

style="width:15%;",style="width:50%;",style="width:15%;",style="width:20%;"

style="width:80px;",style="width:200px;",style="width:200px;",style="width:400px;"

 

 

Here is an example table:
