In Confluence Cloud is there a way to set a fixed width for a table?

I'm trying to set a fixed width table in Confluence Cloud, but don't see the ability to do so.  It looks like you may be able to do it in the Server version but not the Cloud?

Hi @Dan Ireland

It's not available in the new editing experience recently introduced to Confluence Cloud - to see a feature comparison for the old vs new editors, click here. It does mention "fixed width" here but it's more "centred".

There are a few options available now though:

  1. You can choose for a table to be Centred, Wide or Full Width. This gives you options for base table size at creation. Click the button with two arrows in it to the far-right of your table to activate.
  2. You can still have different column widths - hover over a line between two columns until it turns blue then drag to resize.
  3. There is now a scroll-bar for tables which are longer than the page. This means if you have wider columns you don't have to scroll the whole page backwards and forwards - just the table itself.

^ You can also follow another option for column customisation here - CONFCLOUD-67748.

You are right, it's not available in Confluence Cloud at the moment.

There are few feature requests to provide this.;
