how to adjust column width of jira legacy search results

Rezvan Ahvazian March 1, 2024

Hi there 

 

I have multiple pages with "jira legacy" in them that return some issues for me based on the filter that I have set. however, when I export the pdf, the font is too small and the column widths are not what I want. is there a way to adjust the column width? 

 

even if I use a "jira issues" element , I still can't find a setting for Wrap-text, so again the information in the cells doesn't appear fully.

Welcome to the community @Rezvan Ahvazian !

Sadly no, the width from the Jira Legacy macro cannot be adjusted, even if you use the extender option on your page it does the same thing.

thank you for your prompt reply.

Is there another element that I could add to the confluence page that would show issues as search results, but with the option to modify the font and column width, so that I can export the pdf without needing to export the word file first and readjusting? Screenshot 2024-03-01 160736.png

@Rezvan Ahvazian 

For the column width instead of using the outdated Jira legacy, you can use Jira Issues macro.

As for the font change, this macro doesn't support it.

Thank you for that. in Jira issues can I do 
wrap-text" so all the content of a cell appears?

Hi @Rezvan Ahvazian 

When you say all of the content of the cell, which content are you referring to?

sorry I wasn't clear. let me show what I mean with a screenshot please. 

I want the content of each cell to appear fully. so I can export it as pdf. but as you can see right now most of the content of cells like "summary" or "description" or "consolidated comment response" doesn't fit , even if I adjust the column width (the text is usually long.) I thought maybe it worked like excel and I could use "wrap-text".

I see what do you mean. Sadly no, Confluence doesn't have the wrap-text option when the PDF has been exported (tested and confirmed).

well that's unfortunate. I guess the only option is to export word file and adjust it there. 

Thank you for your help. I appreciate it.
