I have a table view with 2 columns but the text of one of these columns is too long, and the other one displays very small.
Who can I make the columns proportional? like 50%-50% or 30%-70%

Thanks, and best regards.

If you want that sort of control of your tables, you probably need to code it from scratch. I don't have a lot of experience with the different built-in layouts to offer anything helpful in that regard.

A tutorial that does something fun with your tables to make them more useful can be seen here ->

You might try installing the Chrome extension Stylebot ( ) on a Chrome browser (or a similar extension on another browser) and experiment with setting the CSS to get the table columns the widths you want them.

Once you do, add the CSS code the extension generates to your site (be sure to turn off the extension, or clear out the css in it, for final testing, so it doesn't affect what you are seeing. You'll also want to test well on desktop vs mobile).

I often use this method to make visual adjustments,

Hi, thanks for the ideas. Finally, I changed the table view for grid views 😉
