Line breaks within cells
Hey all,

Looking to redesign my 5e character sheet and one problem I have is with blocks of text taking up the whole width of the screen.

ie:


FEATURES AND TRAITS
NAMEACTION/RECHARGENotes
Hexblade's Curse(Bonus Actionó1/Short Rest)Choose one creature you can see within 30ft. The target is cursed for 1 minute. Until the curse ends, you gain /the following benefits: You gain a +2 bonus to damage rolls against the cursed target and any attack roll you make against the cursed target is acritical hit on a roll of 19 or 20 on the d20. If the cursed target dies, you regain 4 hp.
 


Hmm, after looking at this I noticed that it's ok here. When the character sheet was fixed width thats what causes the issue, with a variable width, there is no issue.

So I guess my query is: How do you get this effect using a fixed width character sheet option?

In addition to the previous request, I noticed that if I added a second row things start getting really messed up. Instead of heading below, it adds more columns. Any thoughts?

Re: Line breaks within cells
What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

Compare these two and go with what you want. But 1.5 means you have to have 5 rows in the table box before a new row is created. Perhaps you meant 1.2?

Section 3x3
Section 4x4
Section 5x5
More cool text titleanother actionyup. You got text.

Compared to just forcing line breaks where you want:

Hexblade's Curse(Bonus Actionó1/Short Rest)Choose one creature you can see within 30ft. The target is cursed for 1 minute.
Until the curse ends, you gain the following benefits:
You gain a +2 bonus to damage rolls against the cursed target and any attack roll you make against the cursed target
is acritical hit on a roll of 19 or 20 on the d20. If the cursed target dies, you regain 4 hp.
Hexblade's FurySomething elseMore descriptive text that goes
on and on and one until you wonder
why they couldn't condense the text to something simple.

Yeah, I was trying to do the second option, but I had forgotten about the forced line breaks you can do with \n.
