Table cell text spilling over to adjacent cell

Post by dpksaini89 » Mon Oct 01, 2018 2:44 pm

Hi Team,

I am using <oXygen/> XML Editor 20.1, build 2018061313.
The cell text in tables is getting spilled over to adjacent cells.
Please help.

Hi,

This is expected if on that specific table you have set a certain width on the column and the text inside the column cannot be split on multiple rows (it has no spaces in the text content).
Besides the classic DITA to PDF output in the last couple of years we added a type of DITA to PDF transformation using CSS to style the PDF output. Such a transformation has the capability to break long words like yours when it encounters separators like "-", "_". So it would work better in this case but you would still encounter the problem for very long tokens.
Maybe you can just resize that particular table column in the DITA content so that all the tokens have room to fit in it.

Regards,
Radu
