Description Telesto 2017-12-21 19:23:18 UTC
Description:
Setting unevenly distributed columns sizes is hard and cumbersome the achieve using Table properties or set width. (It's even harder with bug 114572)

Steps to Reproduce:
Example one
1. Open the attached file
2.  Objective: Resize Column 1 to 2,4 CM and Column 5 to 5,40 using:
* Open Table Properties -> Columns
* Right Click Menu -> Size -> Column Width

Example 2
Try to create a table of exact 21 cm (which is outside right page borders) using
* Open Table Properties -> Columns
* Right Click Menu -> Size -> Column Width

Can't be done (as for I know). It's try and error to archive 21

Actual Results:  
There is cascade: The editing of Column 1 affects Column 2, editing column 2 affects 3.
Table size is limited to page size (inside the borders)

Expected Results:
* No automatic calculated of the other table sizes (only when a corresponding checkbox is checked or something like that)
* The ability create a table which exceed the page border


Reproducible: Always
