Okay two questions... one is it possible to Word wrap tables here? I have tried <td style="word-wrap: break-word;"> to seemingly no avail.

Second: Is there any way to force formatting like with <br> and <p>?

I am trying to format several tables to create a nice Character sheet but they keep getting jumbled (my spaces between them ignored even when I use hr tags) and the Long Text runs the sides of the sheet out really far.

Have you tried using % to set the width of your columns? What does your table sheet look like so far?

Well I have managed to get the tables to at least obey spacing between them by eliminating the Align Left table tags. I have tried both various fixed widths and using the % option. All the tables without long text work nicely enough but the long text in the Feat, Spell, Abilities and Inventory tables all still refuse to Wrap.

Here is exactly what I am using for the Long Text tables that are giving me trouble.

<table width="50" style="table-layout:fixed"> <tr> <td style="word-wrap: break-word;"> <tr>

I have tried 100, 50, 25, 75%, 50%, 25%, etc.... and none of it allows for the Word Wrap.

Can you post your table with the <code> tag? I'd like to give it a shot.

Ok. Just took a look at it posted. On my screen at first glance, the text in the Notes column wraps at 10-15 characters. It looks like it's half the width of the Item column.

I'm going to try something.

I tried to set the width to 50% in EasyTable, but the other format created narrower columns no matter how low I set the percentage. For me, both Notes columns wrap in the same location, but the top table is wider overall and has a little more space between the lines and the text.

Sorry that I wasn't any help.

Actually... that looks a LOT better than what I was have now. The words are actually wrapping instead of all strung out on a single long line. What was the code used? Does it work for the Sleeves of Many Garments entry later in the table? That ones text is much longer.

In my table currently on my Character sheet NONE of the lines wrap back even once. All the text just runs on out in a single line even with my Word Wrap tags included.

<code>|Item|Category|Quantity|Cost (gp)|Weight (lbs)| Location| Notes|50%
<code>|Alchemists Mercy x6 (3gp)|Alchemical|6|0.5|--|Belt Pouch|Negate hangovers|

When I put the other half of the code tag, it doesn't turn out right, but this is what the header and each following line look like. I just c/p the second line and changed the text each time.

Let me try the longer entry. How's it look to you?

Ask your GM to turn word wrap for your sheet on. That's the easiest way I know of, because then it functions like the forums.

Naturally. ;) I find most GMs don't turn on word wrap for whatever reason, so letting them know you want it on is always a good thing.
