I want HT Aff to appear on a second line, and it's not working. What am I doing wrong?

Use \n.

some reason I got my slash the wrong direction. Thanks.

So what about making all my stuff go to the top line instead of being vertically centered?

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
Try adding a \n at the end.

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
I was trying to remember if there was a code for vertical justification, so I searched for the help file on Easy Tables & Grids -

/help/?t=help&page=easytable

What I realised when searching for the link was that there doesn't appear to be (unless I'm blind!) any sort of link to it from the Help home page, nor even under the RuBB Code Tips & Tricks subpage.  The only way to find it appears to be via a search...

Jase, is it possible to get the help files amended to show the link to the Easy Tables from the RuBB Code Tips and Tricks page?

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
I'd like to thank jase and the rest of the crew for the work they put in to making tables easier, my character sheet looks pretty sweet now, lol

EDIT: My apologies, I was just trying to show how the table could be used to make a nicely organized character sheet

I was really pleased to have that character sheet posted. I stole it and I'm glad I did when I had the chance!

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
If you're interested, you can send me an rMail, I can't post it here though

edit: I should probably state it's designed for pathfinder, but it should work for any d20 with a little modification

Post it to Jhael in a PM in the "Heaven" forum, she can then make it available as a resource to all.

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
Hunh, LonePaladin, try wrapping everything in tt tags:
|Row 1   |
|   Row 2|


Also, look at the weird thing that happens if you attempt to put the contents of a table call in pre tags:
Row 1
Row 2 |

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
"Doc, it hurts when I do this."
"Then don't do that."

Putting a dot in front of a table's rows to suppress it seems to be the easiest solution.

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
Wiki syntax tends to use repeated "special characters" to signify something special.  For instance, in regular text, there's no reason to have two or three apostrophes next to each other, or two square brackets.  Three underscores are used to mark off some so-called "magic words", such as ___TOC___ which means "put the table of contents for the page right here instead of wherever else it would normally go".

What is the easiest way to put a block of text into a cell using this method?

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
Will tables (either kind) shrink down a picture that's too large to fit in whatever "standard size" is for the table on a page or will pictures force tables to be bigger and possibly add scroll bars to the page?

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
what i want to do isnt in the easy tables help section. What i want to do is put a huge amount of text in one cell and have it do something like a word wrap instead of just creating a really really wide cell that means you need to scroll over the whole page

The weird thing is that it works on these pages but character sheets seem to have unlimited width and it all just ends up being on a single line.

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
Character sheets can be set by the GM so that you need to insert all line feeds manually.  It sounds like that's what's happening here.

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
Have you tried sticking a percentage at the end, to tell it how wide to make the table?

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
Lonepaladin: That doesn't do anything I'm afraid.

Jase: Is there a way to make a picture shrink down in a cell? I was trying to make one cell of my character sheet a portrait, but the file I'm linking to from another site is massive compared to what I want.
