Confluence PDF Export table's cell size

Hi,

When exporting a confluence page to PDF, tables cells do not keep their original size so all cells have same size (seems that size is 100% page size divided by number of cells). This is generating long unreadable tables.

Is there any way to handle that through stylesheets ? If yes any suggestion would be appreciated.

I'm afraid you are hitting this bug: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-25567. The bug exists in PDF Export Plugin 2.5.4. Currently there's no available workaround but hopefully the bug will be fixed in the future release.

Try this CSS through the custom PDF Stylesheets:

table

{
   table-layout:auto !important;
   width: auto !important;
}
 
Hope this workaround helps!

Thank you for the helpful question and answer about PDF formatting!
