Reset table column width Edited

I have a table in Confluence Cloud where I manually adjusted the column width. How do I reset the column width so that it's automatically resized by Confluence and doesn't fix the column width to what I manually set?

Basically I'd like to reset the column property back to default.

Hi @JD Stuart

The quickest method is to add a new table.

Confluence will react to the table and the contents within it, so it depends on the number of columns - and as you add or remove columns, it will re-size to consider the size of the page and the columns within it.

If you want to reset your table - adding a new one (or removing and re-adding columns to an extent), will help get to those sizes.


@Stephen Wright _Elabor8_ I tried that but as soon as I copy over a column from the table whose width I'd like to reset, it copies the width of that column as well. I can retype it, but in a table with 50 rows that's a lot of work.
