Printed out some wiki pages with tables, and got something like this on the PDF:

Table printed on PDF

The original table on the wiki was like this:

Sequência de Estímulos e Respostas
Estímulo Resposta
Usuário abre interface principal Sistema apresenta tela inicial
Usuário define dados de entrada (tail number ou configuração da aeronave) Sistema armazena os dados de entrada
Usuário escolhe opção de análise de decolagem (takeoff) Sistema exibe tela de parâmetros para análise de decolagem
Usuário define aeroporto/pista de origem Sistema valida e armazena aeroportos/pistas

It seems like the problem on the PDF was with italic words inside the table.

Apart from that, this feature is awesome, and it´s getting better and better. Thanks guys!

We have the same problem in tables that have no italics or other formatting in the table, but use bold to create column headers and the headings become misaligned.

Removing the bold formatting shows correctly aligned header row, but the table width does not appear to be correct.

Sorry, this tables problem is #69 patch's bug.

I corrected so that the html tag inside a table could not be used with a PDF export.

I finished tests on following environments.

  • CentOS 6 CRuby 1.8.7, 1.9.2, 1.9.3

Thanks guys, formatting seems to be fixed. However, the table width still doesn't fill the page width. A table with 2 columns only fills half the page width. Should this be a separate issue? Is there any reason that we need to have a minimum of 4 columns in the layout?

@default_table_columns ||= 4


if @default_table_columns < @max_table_columns[@table_id]
    @table_columns = @max_table_columns[@table_id];
    @table_columns = @default_table_columns;
