I'd thought of your first solution but was hoping there was something more elegant. Using columns was the elegant soluti

2017-07-02 16:42:45 +0200 marked best answer How do I make a table wrap within a page?

I am trying to display an entire table on one page but I'm having some trouble with it. The table itself is rather narrow, just two columns and about 40 rows, and is less than 2 inches wide. If I make the font small enough for the whole table to fit on the page as a single pair of columns, I have to use a 6pt font and then it's too small to read. I really need the table to fit on one side of one page.

The obvious solution is to make the table "wrap" or "flow" - I'm not sure the best word to use - so that the first 20 or so rows are on the left side of the page, then the remaining rows appear farther to the right side of the page. (The second batch of rows do NOT need to be against the right side of the page; simply having a reasonable gap between the two parts of the table would be sufficient.)

I'm at a loss to see how I can make my table flow so that the first half of the rows are on the left and then the remaining rows are further right. Is this possible? If so, how can I do it? If it is NOT possible, would it be possible for me to have two entirely different tables (one containing the first half of the rows and one containing the second half) appear side by side on the same page? If so, how do I do that?

I feel as if I should be able to do what I'm asking via Table Properties/Text Flow but I've tried all the combinations that made sense and none of them made the slightest bit of difference so I'm obviously missing something.

I'm using Libre Office 5.3.3.2 on Windows 10.

2017-06-21 21:32:24 +0200 marked best answer How do I resize a comment in a libre spreadsheet?

I've created a comment in a Libre Office 5.3.3.2 spreadsheet, running on Windows 10. It's very narrow and tall, too tall to be read without scrolling. I'd like to make it considerably wider so that I can view it all without scrolling it. How do I do that?

I've tried everything I can think of but I have been unsuccessful in widening it. I'm guessing there's some "trick" that puts it in resizing mode where there are actual sizing arrows that will change the width but I can't figure out the trick.
