Description Simon Urli 2019-10-31 08:53:02 UTC
Description:
I'm trying to open an HTML file containing tables with specific width: apparently those are never taken into account, the tables always appeared with the smallest possible width.
I tried with both relative and absolute width, both on the table, and on the cells, without any difference.
I'd expect Writer to take into account the specified width.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an HTML page containing tables with specific width
2. Open it on LibreOffice Writer

Actual Results:
The tables width are not respected.

Expected Results:
The tables width are respected.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

I wanted to use that in to export documents in odt from xwiki (https://www.xwiki.org). I can confirm that Apache OpenOffice (4.1.7) behaves the same as Libre Office, but Microsoft Word does observe the table and column widths from the HTML document provided by Simon.

I confirm it with
