Please redesign change of table column width

Recommended Posts

Easy table workflow from an infamous layout programme: Define a table with 5 (or less or more) columns, set various column width as you like. Now if you e.g. increase the width of column, all other columns keep their defined width, the table in fact gets wider.

Difficult table workflow from a newcomer: Define a table with 5 (or less or more) columns, set various column width as you like. Now if you e.g. increase the width of column 2, column 3 gets smaller, columns 4 and 5 stay the same size. So I have to resize columns 3, 4 and 5.

But there are so many features in Publisher, perhaps I have not found the correct way to prevent above behaviour?

That is indeed how APublisher tables work and I agree with you that it is not sensible. What you would need to do is use the Shift Mouseclick on the table header and the move the column. The strange thing is that table row height works the other way round.
