Line breaks within tables on PDF export

Trying to get PDF exports to break long lines within table columns so that all text within the table shows up.

1] Create new page with 3 column table

2] Paste 'abcdefghijklnmopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklnmopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklnmopqrstuvwxyz' into each column

3] Export to PDF


I've tried customizing the PDF Export stylesheet, to no avail.

body, p, li, td, table, tr, .bodytext, .stepfield {
word-wrap: break-word;
word-break: break-all;
.wiki-content p {
word-wrap: break-word;
word-break: break-all;


Any ideas?

Fixed did the trick.

Thank you!
