Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
Could someone edit the Easy Tables help page to include these extra tricks?

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
Something else I'm looking for:

When making a table the old-fashioned (i.e., clunky) way, it's possible to indent a line of text simply by inserting a few spaces at the start. For instance,

<table>
   <tr><td>Row 1</td></tr>
   <tr><td>   Row 2</td></tr>
</table>


gives

Row 1
   Row 2


but if you try the same thing with an Easy Table,

|Row 1   |
|   Row 2|


gives

Row 1
Row 2

Is there a way to force those leading spaces to work? A table I made in the old way needs updating, and I'd rather make it as an Easy Table than have to deal with all those tags again.

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
You could potentially use the following, which appears to work.

  AB
   CD
    EF

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
How can you make a table blend in with a proportional font character sheet?  The tables really stand out as larger text.  I tried wrapping them with pre but no luck.

I'm not sure what you mean by that but I think you want /tt

EDIT: no I don't think that works, I previewed mine and it spit the code back out.

It looks like this (the table text is larger and bolder than the rest, different font clearly)

The character sheet is just raw text with a few bolds and the table.

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
Easy tables shouldn't change the default font size ...

... tested and can confirm it looks fine to me - same proportional font in and out of the table.

Could you have any browser setting that's substituting table fonts ?  Can you try to view the output using a different browser and see if your mileage varies ? :>

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
In reply to Skald (msg # 156):

I've tried it on Chrome, Firefox, and Safari (in osx) and they all have the table text looking different than the rest (it is a more subtle difference in Firefox).  This is in a character sheet that I believe the GMs have marked as preformatted text.  I've looked at the source for the produced page and there is indeed a < pre > at the beginning of the character.

I suspect that one of these two styles message_table or smart_table has set the font to something and that overrides the preformatted text the table is nested in.  So likely there is nothing I can do unless I wrap all the text in < pre > tags, which would make using the simple tables fairly pointless.

I wonder if I could get the GMs to remove the preformatted flag from character sheets...

In reply to archus (msg # 157):

I've noticed that the tables look different on my Tablet when I use Mozilla vs. when I use Chrome. I don't usually use chrome because the italics thing doesn't seem to want to display properly... maybe because it was embedded within other tags? So yeah, I just thought it might be worthy of mention that it looks normal in Chrome and bigger in Mozilla for me.

Re: Easy Tables and Grids.
Archus ... I suspect you're right about the <pre> ... can you flick the mods an rmail with the name of the game and I'll have a look at the sheet directly and try to duplicate the problem. :>

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.
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

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

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 |
