When I first created my table the first column needed to be widest, but now I need the last column to be widest and I can't figure out how to specify custom ratios of column sizes
Total hack but it works and without a plugin.
There you have it, the hacky way to do this. What this does is fools Confluence into thinking thatfirstsentenceisjustonelongstringofcharacters.
Thanks, I've used a similar lower-tech method. I typically have a blank row at the bottom of many of my tables, so in there I'll just put a long string of x's (xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) based on how wide I want each column. I then highlight the x's and turn the font color to white so they're not visible. They are only visible if someone select the cell/row/table for coping. You could also put this string of x's in the header or first row if you prefer. Seems to work well enough.
I don't believe you can specify column widths with the built-in table construct. However, there are various plugins available that will give you what you need.
The one I've seen most often is the table-plus macro that comes with the Table Plugin for Confluence. Look for it in the marketplace.
It's not the cleanest way, but I've found this one to be the simplest. If you're using Confluence 4.1.5+ and are reasonably comfortable with HTML, do the following:
Thanks for this useful tip.
However, what can I do in this specific case: the cell content is a "User id" macro (i.e. it displays user full name according to the userid I've entered when creating the macro block)?
For instance, when source code is:
<p> <ac:structured-macro ac:name="profile"> <ac:parameter ac:name="user"> <ri:user ri:userkey="1e270f8444cxxxxxxxxxxx"/> </ac:parameter> </ac:structured-macro> </p>
