#7875 confirmed New Feature

Problem with tables: Coulmn sizing and deleting table

After creating a table using "Insert Table" plugin, the column size gets automatically changed after you start typing into the columns. There is no way to assign fix column size to the table.

Also when the table is selected, pressing delete or backspace key does not remove the table from the editor. To remove the table, you need to select the previous and next line of the table as well.

This behavior is seen on FireFox and IE.

There is no way to assign fix column size to the table.

There is a pretty simple way to set the size - just use:

table td{
	width : 250px;
	height : 30px;

in contents.css or other external file.

The only problem I have noticed with the above method is that when you start typing in one of cells it gets enlarged (in height) by CKEditor. This problem has been occurring in Opera and Firefox browsers from CKEditor 3.5.4

The second problem - Can't delete selected table with backspace or delete. Well this is how it works.

In FF and Webkit you have to select every row of the table to delete it with backspace or delete buttons. In Opera and IE you have to select table with a mouse click and then press backspace or delete button.

To sum up I think that the only problem is the cell enlargement when typing (See bold text).

@j.swiderski, I think you didn't get the problem. They simply expect that the cells remain at the same size after table creation. This means that the table dialog should create tables with proper cells width (% or px).

I'm not saying that this feature is a must, because many other users would prefer the automatic sizing provided by HTML. This feature is still valid, but should be configurable (or maybe a checkbox in the dialog).
