Table styling
 
https://i.imgur.com/ct37STz.png
I'm trying to get this table (from Excel) into Realm Works.

Im having troubles with getting Row Height and Column Width working. Is there any hacks that anyone knows of to try and get this to actually work?

For my situation I found a solution.

Row Height is obeyed by Realm Works, thou it uses inches (annoying unit of measure!!), and if you fill a row with characters to the limit of the column, Realm Works presents the information correctly. While this works because I have a blank row for artistic reasons, it wont always work for all users.

How did you enter the table? Cut and paste?

I created the following in RealmWorks using the table and formatting tools available:

BTW, can someone tell me how to avoid images appearing so large in posts to this forum? Do I need to resize them?

Yes, you need to resize them. (Perhaps you're on a device with scaling enabled?)

The images I use are actually that small, but are also not uploaded to the forums, but are instead uploaded to imgur. I use a program called ShareX (now available on Steam). That software can take screen shots to your HDD, take screenshot and automatically upload it to a image host (copying the url to the clipboard automatically).

The only reason I dont use in program tools as it doesn't make sense to use it when I have a full scale table engine. Like I said in the previous post however, inches and percentage for table definations is a very barbaric unit of measurement. It is impercise and if you are using a formating guide the impercise measurment is annoying.

Thou this works too.

That's the way old school HTML does tables and the snippets are HTML.

Indeed, but even then it didnt obey that standard. (Not in the program atm so cant confirm) but I dont recall see a "percentage of snippet area" and then a percentage for each column within that percentage, nor does it comply with X inches either.

So a bad method of measurement with a bad implementation of defining those rules.

Management of table formatting is basically outside of our control. We use a commercial UI framework, and they control all of that stuff. I'm not disputing the complaints with tables - we're quite frustrated with them, as well. Just noting our reality with the toolset we've got.
