RPE 1.2.1 and newer add one more feature to support sizing tables, the fit tables to page property of the Word output.
When set to true tables that are wider than the page are adjusted so that they fit within the page. The improved layout comes at the expense of a slightly improved processing time which is the reason why this property is not enabled and hidden by default.
Update: this is implemented as a property of the Word output and not as a property of tables in Studio to allow setting it for all the tables in the document including the tables coming from rich text .
NOTE: even with fit tables to page set to true the table might not fit the page if the table is very large and in some cases due to how Microsoft Word handles cell widths.
If you choose to set fit tables to page to true, you must also set these properties:
- For the cell elements, set the width property (optional)
- For the table element, clear the value for the table autofit property
