6) FAQ

Why are the images not aligned with the text of the cell?

You can avoid images collapsing by giving enough space to the table cells that include the images. You can achieve this with one of these methods:

  • Change the table width by using the Table Width and the Table Width Value options
  • Set the minimum width of the table with the Table Minimum Width option
  • Insert the table in a container with the Enable Container option and set the appropriate size of the container with the Container Width and the Container Height options
  • Reduce the number of columns to increase the width available for each column
  • Decrease the font size of the cells
  • Decrease the length of the text in the cells
  • Use a condensed font

Why is the text of a cell distributed on multiple lines?

When there isn’t enough horizontal space, the text of a cell is distributed on multiple lines. You can solve this problem using the same methods suggested in the Why are the images not aligned with the text of the cell? FAQ.
