I've checked around other answers here and nothing seems to quite be working. I've fiddled with overflow-wrap, white-space, and word-wrap to no avail.
Our documents have table cells containing a fair amount of text. When viewing the table in Confluence, the text wraps and a new line begins upon hitting the edge of a cell. When exported to PDF however, no line break is added. The text either overflows into the next cell, or is clipped if it overflows the table.
Here is the PDF stylesheet rules I'm currently using:
page-break-inside: auto !important;
width: 100% !important;
table-layout: fixed !important;
The width and page-break rules are there because if a table ran over the end of a page it was shrinking the entire table to a minuscule size to fit. The table-layout rule keeps the user adjusted column widths respected.
Examples of the problem:
Any help here would be greatly appreciated!
This is what I'm using to get "nice" table export in PDF :
/* Fix default behavior on table's column width */
table-layout: auto !important;
width: auto !important;
The word-wrap property is the one that changes everything for me.
Hope this helps
Yeah on our end it stops respecting the right hand page margin for the entire table and overflows. It still doesn't wrap any text.
It was actually the <p> white-space rule that was screwing it up. Changing it to "pre-wrap" preserves the wrapping of text in tables as well as any intentional white space placed in the document (the latter being why it was there to begin with). Table width definitely needs to be set to 100% or the tables overflow the page however. Table layout set to fixed was required for us to preserve user sizing on the tables (for form templates).
